5.0 out of 5 stars classic soul from one of the greats
This album's 22 tracks showcase Eddie Floyd's Stax recordings from 1966 to 1974. One of the great soul voices, Floyd effortlessly demonstrates his versatility. This collection ranges through dancefloor stormers 'Knock On Wood' and 'Big Bird', the Impressions-smooth 'I've Never Found A Girl To Love Me Like You Do', tear-your-heart-out emotion in the deep soul 'Consider Me'...

1.0 out of 5 stars The cover is real the rest.........
The cover of this CD is real the same as the original caming out on CD in the serie "Masters-Atlantic-Atco" but for the rest this is not what I expected to hear, the original has other titles and of course with the help of this great studio group Booker T and friends it is the only one you need to hear

5.0 out of 5 stars classic soul from one of the greats, 15 May 2008
This review is from: Knock on Wood: the Best of Eddie Floyd (Audio CD)
This album's 22 tracks showcase Eddie Floyd's Stax recordings from 1966 to 1974. One of the great soul voices, Floyd effortlessly demonstrates his versatility. This collection ranges through dancefloor stormers 'Knock On Wood' and 'Big Bird', the Impressions-smooth 'I've Never Found A Girl To Love Me Like You Do', tear-your-heart-out emotion in the deep soul 'Consider Me' and the peace and love brothers and sisters plea 'People, Get It Together'. Backed by the best house band ever, with unrivalled musicianship and sky-high production values, this is soul music at its very best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Things Get Better (Oh Yes, they do)., 28 Feb 2014
By

(VINE VOICE)    (TOP 500 REVIEWER)   
Eddie's "Things Get Better" was always a great favourite of mine. Disappointing then that every CD release of the song I have ever owned had a technical defect on the intro - I'd always assumed because of some defect on the master tape, well it was made in 1967. So, when I saw the "remastered" claim for this album, I wanted to find out if they'd managed to restore the intro, so I bought just the MP3 of the track. You know what, It sounds as good as new - completely like it originally did again. Full marks for the remastering then!

I think I'll buy the whole album now.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Knock on Wood etc., 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Every track is an A side and I'm not a particular fan of this genre.
It's well produced. A good album for anybody's collection. Plus,
`Duck' Dunn of Booker T and the M.G.'s is the bassist. They were
Atlantic records house band.
