Beautiful 1969 Original In Shrink Wrap, Clean COH. Unplayed Condition. “While The "Raw" Part Of The Title May Be Overstating The Case Just A Bit, "Blues" Describes This Disc Pretty Well, Thank You — On His Fourth Album, Johnnie Taylor Shifts His Focus Away From Stax's Trademark Southern Soul Stylings Towards Leaner And Grittier Blues-Based Performances, A Style He'd Already Shown A Knack For On His Earlier Sets. Raw Blues Still Walks A Line Between Soul And Blues, With The Sweet-And-Sour Tone Of The Memphis Horns Sometimes Stacking The Deck In Favor Of The Former, But "Part Time Love", "Hello Sundown" And "You Can't Keep A Good Man Down" Generate A Potent Late-Night Mood Vibe Which Match The Downcast Authority Of Taylor's Voice. And If The Always Air-Tight Performances Of The Stax Studio Crew (Including Steve Cropper And Isaac Hayes) Pack Enough Heat To Turn "You Can't Win With A Losing Hand" And "That Bone" Into Potent Dance Floor Material, Taylor's Rough But Passionate Delivery Never Lets This Get Too Close To The Land Of The Slick. A Strong And Heartfelt Set That Serves As An Important Precursor To Taylor's Later Blues-Oriented Sets For Malaco.” Mark Deming, All Music Guide.
