More Okeh...

Starting out as vocalist for The Cadets and The Jacks, Ted Taylor starting releasing solo tracks in '57 and was still recording into the mid 70's, including a short spell on the legendary Okeh label. There is a cracking compilation available of all his Okeh recordings, including today's tune "Somebody's Always Trying", which showcases his falsetto vocals perfectly, with hints of Smokey and Jackie Wilson in there.

Somebody's Always Trying

  1. VVery good. Very good. Is this the same Ted Taylor who sang "friendship only goes so far"?. That, by the way, is a great souithern soul song
