Getting his big break as Sam Cooke's replacement in the Soul Stirrers, vocalist Johnnie Taylor may have started out in gospel, but he truly hit his stride (at least as a viable pop artist) when he shifted to R&B and signed to the Stax label in the mid 1960s. This 20-track collection covers Taylor's '60s/'70s run on Stax, beginning with the singer's first major hits--the lightly funky, horn-laden "Who's Makin' Love?" and its like-minded follow-up, "Take Care of Your Homework." Many of these late-'60s/early-'70s tracks feature Stax's mind-blowing assemblage of in-house musicians--from Isaac Hayes on guitar to the Memphis Horns and Booker T. & the MG's--and this top-notch backing only enhances the punch of Taylor's impassioned, raspy style. While this compilation doesn't contain Taylor's later hits (namely the slinky, chart-topping "Disco Lady"), CHRONICLE does an excellent job of surveying his classic Stax years, making it the perfect companion piece to the '76-'80 Columbia anthology RATED X-TRAORDINARE.
