Flashback to the Legendary Johnnie Taylor

 Johnnie Harrison Taylor was born in Crawfordsville, AK, on May 5, 1934. He grew up mostly in nearby West Memphis. Later moving to Kansas City, where he performed with a gospel group called the Melody Kings.In 1953, Taylor  joined the doo wop group the Five Echoes.He also began performing  with the gospel group the Highway QCs, which had once been home to Sam Cooke. In 1957, Taylor would replace Cooke in the hugely influential Soul Stirrers, after Cooke departed for a career in secular music.It was through this outfit that he initially met and befriended Soul Stirrers frontman Sam Cooke.He recorded for Sam's SAR label before Cookes untimely death.  

 Oh How I love You Johnnie Taylor

He was a top young gospel singer, gritty Stax/Volt soulster, lady-killing balladeer, chart-topping disco king, Southern soul-blues man. Johnnie Taylor  managed to adapt to the times, and his versatility showed out in his recording career that lasted nearly four decades. Nicknamed the "Philosopher of Soul" during his Stax days, here, Taylor is best remembered for his 1968 R and B chart-topping smash "Who's Making Love," but far and away his biggest success was 1976's across-the-board number one "Disco Lady,".The first single ever certified platinum which at the time meant sales of over two-million copies. After the disco craze faded in the mid 80's Taylor moved to the Malaco label and for over 15 years he kept on recording and performing right up to his passing in 2000.
