Sir Shambling's Deep Soul Heaven - RUDOLPH TAYLOR

Sir Shambling's Deep Soul Heaven - RUDOLPH TAYLOR: "Memphis artist Rudolph Taylor had a single session with Charles Chalmers which produced this really excellent two sided disc. “Tell Him Tonight” is one of those deep soul ballads that just sound so right – the band includes several of the AGP crew like drummer Gene Chrisman, bassist Tommy Cogbill and Reggie Young on guitar, so the backing (sadly no horns) is quite exemplary – and Taylor, who starts off rather quietly, really gets into the beautifully constructed song after the first verse. His low tone baritone voice is powerful and demonstrative, and he brings some fine gospel nuances to the performance as well. Chalmers also cut William Bollinger on “Tell Him Tonight” using the same rhythm track and leased the result to Chess."
