HASH(0x99021a08) out of 5 stars only place to find three essential Johnnie Taylor tracks 15 Sept. 2014
By TheNoomz83 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Stax soul star Johnnie Taylor, between his subsequent five-year stint at Columbia (which produced the #1 pop and soul smash "Disco Lady" before the slide that engulfed his last three years there) and finding his final home in the mid-'80s on the Southern soul label, Malaco, made a brief stop at Beverly Glen in LA in 1982, long enough to record nine tracks, eight of which came out on four 1982-83 singles. All of these are here, as is his one remaining LP track.

The new reality in the '80s was that, for the most part, older solo soul artists (Taylor was then 44) were not crossing over onto the pop charts any more, but there were enough loyal soul fans to carry his LP "Just Ain't Good Enough" up to #19 on the soul albums chart and its first single, the superbly produced and performed smooth groover "What About My Love" to #24. The B-side, "Reaganomics" (how 1982 is that!), is pure "Soul Train"-ready funky disco, with the odd juxtaposition of lyrics that have JT "fighting" the senseless "they'll-be-no-money-for-you" (meaning, the rest of you non-supply-siders) economic policy. The next single, "I'm So Proud" (not the great Curtis Mayfield & the Impressions' song) is a midtempo romantic pleaser, but like most of the tracks here, it goes on too long (nearly six minutes). This proved to be his second and last soul-chart hit on Beverly Glen [reaching a modest peak of #55]. Its B-side, "I Need a Freak," was too obviously modeled after Rick James's massive hit "Super Freak" from a year earlier. Single #3 might just be his best double-sided one ever; however, it didn't chart nationally at all, very likely because the top side, "Just Ain't Good Enough," was the title track of the LP, which fans would have already procured by that time. This one also goes six minutes, but I wouldn't care if it went 'til next Thursday, the groove is so tight, JT sounds so astoundingly inspired, and the backing vocal chorus, arrangement and orchestration are all so on point. This is one of the finest soul records of the '80s. The flip-side is the tender, pleading ballad, "Don't Wait," possibly his warmest one ever up to that time.

Despite the presence of a few substandard songs in this collection, the stellar soul tracks "Just Ain't Good Enough," "What About My Love," and "Don't Wait" combine to make this a must-have CD, particularly given the impossibility of finding them anywhere else.

Was very disappointed with this CD, I felt that Johnnie Taylor did a rush job on this project. The whole concept didn't live up to my expectation of him.
