1966 had seen Eddie Floyd's solo career launched by the massive hit "Knock On Wood". His next few singles charted more modestly - "Raise Your Hand", "Love Is A Doggone Thing" and "On A Saturday Night" reached #16, #30 and #22 respectively on the R&B chart. His next big hit came in 1968 - "I've Never Found A Girl (To Love Me Like You Do)", with backing vocals from Ollie & The Nightingales, was a #2 R&B hit, and was followed by a great cover of Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" which was a #4 R&B but also got to #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 (his highest charting single on the pop chart).
His second solo album came out in 1968, featuring both "I've Never Found A Girl" and "Bring It On Home To Me", plus a cover of Clarence Carter's "Slip Away". Some excellent soul music typical of the Stax sound.
