Eddie Floyd : Eddie Loves You So

eddielovesyouso.jpgEddie Floyd’s first album in six years, Eddie Loves You So, is a celebration of the music that he took to the top of the charts on the venerable music label, Stax. It is also a look back through his years with the ensemble, The Falcons.

His Falcons work is represented on Eddie Loves You So with a rerecorded "You’re So Fine," plus the group’s big hit, "Never Get Enough of Your Love." But the shining moment of Floyd’s new disc lies in the genre-jumping attraction of the unreleased Falcons’ gem, "Since You’ve been Gone." It holds it’s own alongside Floyd’s legendary number, "Knock on Wood," pushing an insistent, harmony-driven bridge that pulsates and sizzles inside the listener’s mind, repeating in a deliberately addictive manner.

Produced by Mike Dinallo (Radio Kings, Barrence Whitfield) and Ducky Carlisle (Susan Tedeschi, Buddy Guy, Graham Parker), Eddie Loves You So is an homage to a mountain pile of Stax classics, leading to a career defining mark for the timeless work of Eddie Floyd.
