Muze PNote Former preacher Johnnie Taylor had already recorded a few songs on Sam Cooke's SAR label before he signed with Stax and released his first solo LP in 1966. Two years later the man called "the Philosopher of Soul" hit the top of the R&B charts with his breakthrough album, WHO'S MAKING LOVE. Produced by Al Jackson and Don Davis, WHO'S MAKING LOVE mixes elements of gospel-influenced blues and soul, while Johnnie's impassioned preacher-at-the-pulpit vocals tell tales of love and pain, romance gone wrong, suspicion, and jealousy. This inspired sophomore effort heralded the arrival of an exceptional solo singer and marked the beginning of a string of successes with Stax that would make Johnnie Taylor the label's all-time highest selling artist.

Producer: Don Davis; Don David; Al Jackson, Jr.

Engineer: Ron Capone

Artist Overview

Johnnie Taylor first achieved notoriety when he joined Sam Cooke's former group, the Soul Stirrers, in 1957. Taylor's blues-based R&B records of the '60s, like his biggest hit, "Who's Makin' Love?," featured an irresistible beat and Taylor's gruff, emphatic vocals. While he never achieved the fame of Otis Redding or Wilson Pickett, Taylor stuck around long enough to enjoy a second surge in popularity with the lusty hit "Disco Lady" in 1976.

Mojo (Publisher)
(12/00, p.125)
- "...A timely reminder of his gifts....sophisticated slices of gospel-edged soul, moving Stax in a slicker direction than their earlier hits..."
