Ted Taylor - unsung Soul-sation from the 60's.

Taking a brief detour into Soul territory tonight via Ted Taylor and his classic 1964 single for the legendary Okeh Records, Somebody's Always Trying.

Taylor had a long career going back to the 1950's until his untimely death in 1987. He recorded for a number of labels and, even though he's not as well known today as he was in his heyday, he recorded some great stuff.

Get acquainted if you aren't already.
