Though the Stax singer and songwriter Eddie Floyd is perhaps best known for his barnstorming performance on the 1960s R&B classic "Knock on Wood," this compilation makes plain that he was no one-hit wonder. The "Just My Imagination"/"Groovin'" soundalike "I've Never Found Me a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)" still sounds like an undiscovered summer classic, while later releases like the relaxed party anthem "Soul Street" and the smooth, sophisticated "Check Me Out" show Floyd to be a versatile singer equally adept at performing dance material or sultry romantic songs.
