Taylor replaced Sam Cooke in The Soul Stirrers before becoming a solo artist, and went on to have a big it in the mid-seventies with “Disco Lady” (1976).

This album is recorded with the Stax house band, including Booker T & The MGs, and features five songs written by Isaac Hayes & David Porter as well as a wonderful version of Herbie Hancock’s “Watermelon Man” with lyrics (presumably by Taylor?).
