That was not due to any lack of talent, however. Eddie Taylor was a supremely versatile blues guitarist, equally capable of playing the greasiest, grittiest grooves imaginable, and tearing off into a burning single-string solo.
And he was a strong, expressive singer as well Eddie Taylor was a great songwriter when his muse was in, but he seemed to have a hard time coming up with enough truly excellent material to compete with the exceptionally prolific Willie Dixon and that force of nature Aleck "Rice" Miller. On this aptly titled live recording it was cut The Lover - Sibelius*, Grieg*, Elgar* - Rakastava For String Orchestra / Holberg Suite For String Or JapanTaylor is backed by brothers Louis and David Myers on 2nd guitar and bass guitar respectively, and by veteran drummer Odie Payne, a powerful, versatile percussionist who played with Therell Be A Day - Eddie Taylor - Long Way From Home who was anybody on the Chicago blues scene at one time or another.
Also, Taylor and Louis Myers both get off a couple of great solos on "Going Down Slow" that's Eddie Taylor in the right speakerand this rendition of "Crossroads" is one of the finest electric versions of that classic song I have ever heard.
Taylor even sounds like Robert Johnson. There is a lot of sizzling blues guitar playing here, and some wonderful drumming by Odie Payne as well. The sound Therell Be A Day - Eddie Taylor - Long Way From Home fine, and the liner notes are quite good.
And "Long Way From Home" is a really enjoyable live album by one of the finest, most talented sidemen on the Chicago blues scene, the great Eddie Taylor.
