Product Description:

The subtitle of 2005's TAKE A GIANT STEP: THE BEST OF TAJ MAHAL is a bit misleading. This 10-track compilation features the finest of the revered blues guitarist/vocalist's early-to-mid-1990s output for the Private Music label, and draws from only three records--LIKE NEVER BEFORE, DANCING THE BLUES, and PHANTOM BLUES. That noted, TAKE A GIANT STEP presents many excellent tunes from this pop-leaning period, including the dreamy title track, the rollicking "Sittin' on Top of the World," and the slinky "Lonely Avenue."
Mahal's husky voice carries every song and, although his guitar playing isn't prominent on much of the disc, there's still no mistaking his fleet-fingered solos. Those looking for a collection of classic Taj Mahal should seek out Columbia's 17-track THE BEST OF TAJ MAHAL or, better yet, the label's two-disc ESSENTIAL TAJ MAHAL, but for listeners wanting an accessible introduction to the latter-day work of this blues master, TAKE A GIANT STEP fits the bill.
