5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Find November 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Unfortunatly Amazon have not given anybody a track listing here.
"Sing a Happy Song" Consists of 3 Albums on 2 cds + some previously unreleased live tracks with the International Rhythm Band.
Albums
#1:"Music Fuh Ya".
#2: "Evolution".
#3:"Brothers, Soundtrack". This Soundtack has never been released seperatly on cd, so it a must have if you collect Taj. Also "Sing a Happy Song" is a Limited Edition of 3000 Only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Taj You May Not Know September 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some time around 1967--I musta been in tenth grade, bummed out over the impending Beatles break-up and just getting turned on to Hendrix, the Doors and Cream's "Disraeli Gears"--a buddy of mine hauled out a new album by this far-out black cat named Taj Mahal. I don't recall the title of the LP, just that it had a cool psychedelic cover and some crazy music that at the time I didn't quite get...it wasn't blues and it wasn't rock, reggae didn't have a name yet and it sure as hell wasn't Motown.

I didn't become a heavy-duty Taj freak until a few years later, when I was fresh out of the military and it was hard to find music that didn't suck--the late 60's and early 70's were jammed with intensely interesting and innovative artists, then there was a dry spell that lasted until...come to think of it, compared to that time the dry spell's still here. Taj didn't really fit into any category and 40 years later he still doesn't...you can't pigeon-hole Taj Mahal.

There are several "Best of" Taj collections and unfortunately many people categorize him by his Columbia recordings--tunes like "Fishin' Blues" and "Cakewalk into Town." That phase of his career was fun but few folks seem to realize that the cat has released something like 40 albums over the past half-century or so and thrives on crossing musical genres...he's never been afraid of new directions and while his blues roots probably run deepest, he's crossed over into rock, reggae, jazz, R&B, pop (the rare good kind of pop, like early Stevie Wonder) and even heavy electric stuff...there's no pinning this dude down. Give him a single instrument--an acoustic guitar, a harp, a glockenspiel or a tuba--or give him a full orchestra with a load of backup singers, and this guy will make you smile.
