The Johnnie Taylor album containing 'Cheaper To Keep Her,' ‘Standing In For Jody’ and other gems has become a Stax classic.
The soul man from Crawfordsville, Arkansas rang up his 14th soul chart entry with ‘Jody's Got Your Girl And Gone,’ from an impressive total of 43.
As Taylor released the follow-up to 'Who's Making Love,' he was immediately onto another winner.
'Love Bones' hit the R&B chart on December 13, 1969 and became the fifth of eight consecutive top tenners for the Arkansas soul man.
In October 1973, with some seven years of great Stax recordings already to his name, Taylor charted with another, ‘Cheaper To Keep Her.’
Don Davis, the Detroit-based producer, who passed away at the age of 75 but leaves some fine recorded work behind, especially with vocalist Johnnie Taylor.
