Eargasm - Johnnie Taylor

Eargasm
JOHNNIE TAYLOR was born in Crawfordsville Arkansas in 1934. He grew up in West Memphis where he performed in Gospel groups as a youngster. Johnnie would later take the place of Lou Rawls in the Gospel group, Highway QCs, a sextet that also helped launch the career of Sam Cooke, the Highway QCs’ founder, who Johnnie would go on to replace in The Soul Stirrers in 1957 as Cooke concentrated on his solo career.
A few years later and JOHNNIE TAYLOR was signed to Sam Cooke’s independent label, SAR Records where he recorded ‘Rome Wasn’t Built In A Day’ in 1962 and stayed there until the untimely death of Sam Cooke in 1964 when the label subsequently became defunct.
By 1966 JOHNNIE TAYLOR had moved to the legendary Stax Records where he was dubbed "The Philosopher Of Soul” and recorded with Stax house band, Booker T. & The MGs, releasing a string of chart hits and Gold records and established himself as a flagship artist for Stax alongside greats such as Isaac Hayes and The Staples Singers. After the demise of Stax JOHNNIE TAYLOR signed to Columbia Records where he would record EARGASM, the album that would create his best known hit- DISCO LADY.
Recorded in 1976, EARGASM’s first single, DISCO LADY, was a #1 hit in both the US Pop and R&B charts and even scored an impressive #25 in the UK. The follow up single, SOMEBODY’S GETTIN’ IT, was also well received scoring a top 40 position on the competitive US Pop chart and rose all the way to #5 on the R&B charts. Other notable tracks on the album include the B-Side to SOMEBODY’S GETTIN’ IT, PLEASE DON’T STOP (THAT SONG FROM PLAYING). A smooth, soul number with subtle additions of great, funk guitar licks and a lovely string section. Also YOU”RE THE BEST IN THE WORLD which was recently sampled on Kraak and Smaak 2008 hit – Squeeze Me.
BBR is very excited to present this wonderfully repackaged and beautifully re-mastered edition of JOHNNIE TAYLOR’s EARGASM complete with liner notes and added bonus content.
Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, EARGASM is a must have for all Soul, Funk, Gospel, R&B and Disco fans out there!
