Overview

Huey Lewis compiled Johnnie Taylor's Stax Profiles, a 14-track combination of his best-known songs with lesser-heard material, that examines both his pre-Stax output and hit recordings for the Memphis-based label. Although collectors will have little use for this set, it suits the purposes of curious listeners quite well. These 14 cuts chronicle Taylor's progression from gospel singer with the Highway Q.C.'s and the Soul Stirrers to "the Philosopher of Soul", highlighted by "Disco Lady" and "Who's Making Love."
