The new 12-page booklet has very knowledgeable and affectionate liner notes by BILL DAHL who did the exceptional liner notes on Bear Family's 1961-1970 "Sweet Soul Music" CDs (10 volumes) and their 1945-1960 "Blowing The Fuse" series on R'n'B music (16 volumes). I've reviewed nearly all of them. You also get the original artwork on the front and rear of the booklet, musician and session details etc. But it's a shame the booklet doesn't go any further.

One of the best albums made by The Soul Philosopher - standout tracks being I Believe in You and Cheaper to keep her. Johnnie was one of THE greatest soul singers, and his partnership with producer/writer Don Davis was as good as it gets. This version has 6 extra tracks including some singles made around this time.

Johnnie Taylor was pure class and this remastered cd is a must for fans of sophisticated soul .
beautiful arrangements and wonderful Lyrics,
Should have been more widely appreciated at the time but true soul fans will know what I mean
when I say JT was taylored in SOUL.

one of my all time favourite soul albums up there with marvin gaye and stevie wonder.
forgiving the awful pun in the title and the pimp clothing.
mainly ballads apart from the rat pack style cheaper to keep her.
one gripe the great love depression the b side of i believe in you is missing.
you need to buy super taylor to hear it let's hope that album gets remastered too.
along with all of the classics in the stax catalogue.
i suppose it will depend on how well the first batch sell.
the staple sisters is next on my list.
