About

As part of the Stax Profiles series, soul vocalist Eddie Floyd is spotlighted with material recorded between 1966 and 1971 for the Memphis-based label. Actor/comedian, Blues Brother, and super fan Dan Aykroyd, who made sure the singer had a part in the Blues Brothers 2000 flick, selected the 13 cuts on this compilation and did an admirable job of combining the hits "Knock on Wood" and "I've Never Found a Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)" with several lesser-heard gems. For the curious, the disc offers a trimmed yet balanced overview of Eddie Floyd's time at Stax, backed up in various settings by the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, Con Funk Shun, the Memphis Horns, and Booker T. & the MG's, which not only makes this a quality introduction to the vocalist but to the overall Stax sound as well. ~ Al Campbell
