  • Label: Stax

Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.81
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Floyd's in good voice...linking up emotionally with lyrics to high-quality songs of romance he wrote in recent years, during the Stax '60s and '70s era or in the late '50s..."
Dirty Linen - p.90
"The result: perfect classic Stax sound -- tight and smoking, but with a relaxed and loose underpinning. Floyd, now in his 70s, sounds joyous."
Living Blues - pp.50-51
"EDDIE LOVE YOU SO is a thoughtfully conceived career retrospective of sorts....[With] two new songs that show that Floyd's writing chops also remain in tip-top shape."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.109
3 stars out of 5 -- "[H]e's selected this album from his own rich back catalogue and made a 'This Is Your Life' kind of record....It's mature, accomplished, recalling his yellow-label Stax period."

One of Stax's most beloved male soul-singers, Eddie Floyd was a raw-throated belter with a vocal style that recalled the juke joint-shaking roar of '50s vocalists like Junior Parker and Little Willie John. Though Floyd cut a fair number of hits for Stax, including "Knock on Wood" and the gospel-steeped "Raise Your Hand," he also had a formidable reputation as a hit songwriter. EDDIE LOVES YOU SO finds the singer revisiting 10 of his finest compositions from decades past, including previously unrecorded numbers like the stirring "Since You've Been Gone." EDDIE LOVES YOU SO boasts an appropriately earthy, no-frills sound that retains the grit and drive of Floyd's classic Stax recordings without resorting to outright imitation. Floyd's voice has become grittier and more authoritative with the passage of time, and he carries numbers like the irrepressible "Till My Back Ain't Got No Bone" with the grace and assurance of an old master.
