Johnnie Taylor: Super Taylor [Stax, 1974]
Last time the best cuts took a while despite their hit history, which means you never got to the others without working at it. Here "It's September" (a you're-due-home lyric finished off with a sharp question mark of a guitar riff) and "I've Been Born Again" (testifying so ebulliently for fidelity that it sounds like both fun and the truth) have seduced me into listening to both sides again and again. And you know, they're pretty good.
