Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

When Cooke left the Soul Stirrers for a pop career in 1957, Paul Foster tried to carry on alone but soon realized he was most effective as a foil to a high tenor. So he hired Kansas City's Johnnie Taylor, and the 19-year-old tenor soon assuaged the disappointment over Cooke's departure with a sweet tone that seemed to make the lyrics hum as he soared up and down through the octaves. The 24 tracks on this album, recorded from 1953 to '59, feature 10 Foster leads, nine Taylor leads, and five split leads. Only two of these takes have been previously released. --Geoffrey Himes

Paul Foster carries them strongly on this CD. I do believe that Foster is better in a dual lead role, but to be honest I think that it is the dual lead role and the driving background that make the Soul Stirrers such a great group.
Foster is an able lead singer as is shown in Sinner Run to Jesus and In a Few More Days. Foster had an intense singing style that had a harder edge than Cooke, R. H. Harris, or Taylor. He was a perfect complement to them.
Johnny Taylor also comes in with some gems. Even though you can hear Cooke in the background of some of these tracks, the CD does show that the Soul Stirrers could create good music without Cooke or R. H. Harris...

WATCH OUT ! The "What the critics say" that appears in the editorial does not refer to this CD, but to a later, less successful one ! Dont be misled. I loved this Cd from the first hearing, and it even sounded better with time ! Little Johnny Taylor is the featured soloist. His voice is almost as smooth as Sam Cooke's, but to me it is deeper and more meaningful. The two takes of "out on a Hill" are definitely among the best Gospel Ballads ever recorded. "Heaven is my Home" is almost just as beautiful. I always loved Paul Foster's singing. He is the lead singer on a few tracks, of which "Golden Bells" is especially worth mentioning. I Heartily recommand this CD.

To make things short, this cd has everything. I enjoyed Paul Fosters intense singing style. Considering what had to be done, Paul did a good job in the lead role. Although Sam Cooke was a great singer, it was the combination of Cooke and Paul Foster with the Soul Stirrers, that made everything so special.

Sam Cooke left and Johnnie Taylor came over from the Highway QC's. 'Out On A Hill' is awesome. As is 'The Love Of God' and 'When The Gates Swing Open' youngun really put his stamp on these songs.
