ALEX TAYLOR - Dinnertime LP 72 w Voodoo In Me LP 89
REPOST and ADD ON: I don't know why I have two of these by James Taylor brother but I guess I just got the later one because Dan Aykroyd wrote a little praise: "Where does a Blues Brother go to hear his favorite music and a vocalist of great range, personality and dynamism?...wherever Alex Taylor can be found. Forget that he is a member of the acknowledged soul-heart of the famous Taylor singing family. Forget that he has held his own on the bill with Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and is a member in good standing of the Saturday Night Live, Blues Brothers Hidden Inspirers Club. Even if I hadn't been digging his unparalleled vocal power since first hearing him at New York's Lone Star Cafe and feeling his life-loving spirit in everything I've ever heard him sing, this record alone would make me a devotee. Yes it's true that I exclusively booked him and his band one recent summer so that I could hang out and learn how to build a smoking' show. The whole six months were a pleasure. Alex is hot and hard working. This record is a taste of incredible POWERFUNKBURN MUSIC a few acres of which he can now boldly mark as his own." Elwood Blues aka Dan Aykroyd.
