Performer Notes
  • Digitally remastered from the original stereo master tapes.
  • If for no other reason, KNOCK ON WOOD is worth owning for the title track alone. Recorded at the legendary Stax/Volt label with Booker T. and the MG's, "Knock on Wood," written by Floyd, stands alongside any southern soul classic of the century. From the rifle-shot crack of the drums to Steve Cropper's steely Telecaster incisions, Floyd calls for thunder and lightning and receives it at every step.
  • Elsewhere, the album is just as ambitious. Floyd and company actually have the chutzpah to take on J.J. Jackson's rattling "But it's Alright." While Floyd doesn't match Jackson's floor-pounding performance, the band locks into the groove and pushes Floyd very close to the raw power of the original.
  • Floyd takes back his own "634-5789," which he originally wrote for Wilson Pickett. He transforms Chuck Jackson's "I Don't Want to Cry" into a staccato sensation, full of punchy horns and heart-on-your-sleeve pleas. The other Floyd-penned highlight is "I've Just Been Feeling Bad." A measured song sung with sweet control, it is a testament to Floyd's talents, not only as a writer but as an evocative singer as well.
