Eddie Floyd - I've Never Found A Girl (1968)

Eddie Floyd is an American soul singer and songwriter.

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.
