Album Review

An Introduction to Ted Taylor is a comprehensive look at the soul singer's tenure with the Jewel and Ronn record labels between 1965 and 1973. Fuel 2000 does an admirable job following the major paths Taylor's career took, highlighting R&B tunes that were similar to the material he sang in the 1950s as a member of the Cadets and the Jacks; the horn-drenched Southern soul recorded at Muscle Shoals; and several bittersweet ballads, best exemplified by his biggest hit, "Be Ever Wonderful." Even the lesser-known cuts on this collection are worth hearing, as they capture the warmth that Taylor's unique high tenor voice brought to the music.
