Soul Singer Eddie Floyd had the mixed fortune of recording for the famed Stax/Volt label during the Memphis studio's heyday. On one hand, he wrote songs and recorded with some of the best R&B musicians that this country has ever produced. On the other, he had to compete in the marketplace with these very same giants. And Eddie, a sturdy singer and capable songwriter, was simply no match for the earth-scorching dynamics of Otis Redding or Sam and Dave.
As CHRONICLES attests, Eddie Floyd may have been the marquee name of a lesser label. The sweet "I Never Found a Girl" rolls into a loping version of Sam Cooke's "Bring it on Home to Me." His singing style bears more resemblance to Cooke's than it does to most of his more gritty Stax peers. "Knock on Wood," co-written with Stax guitarist Steve Cropper, is a bona fide classic. Evidence of its greatness lies in the number and diversity of performers--from The Pointer Sisters to Eric Clapton--who've revived it over the years.
