Soul fans have known Eddie Floyd for six decades. Cofounder of The Falcons, a Detroit vocal group that paved the way for The Temptations and The Four Tops, Floyd and the group recorded what is considered one of the first Soul records, "You're So Fine". Later, they recruited Wilson Pickett and scored again with "I Found a Love".
 

In the early sixties, Stax Records brought Floyd to Memphis as a songwriter. He had immediate successes with artists Carla Thomas, Sam & Dave, and old mate Wilson Pickett, but it was a song he wrote for Otis Redding that Stax decided to release on Floyd himself that changed everything for Eddie. "Knock On Wood", co-written with guitarist Steve Cropper, quickly became one of the biggest hits of 1966 and has been a Soul staple ever since. It has been covered by over 200 different artists including Count Basie, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, and AmiiStewart, whose global megasmash in 1979 defines the Disco era.
 

LocoBop opened its vaults to compile some of our best Eddie Floyd Tracks in a new volume called simply Eddie Floyd Refreshed. Our favorites include his old hits “On a Saturday Night” and “Raise Your Hand” as well as knockout performances of soul classics he wrote for others (“Ninety-Nine And A Half" for Wilson Pickett; “The Breakdown” for Rufus Thomas). Two other stellar turns include “I Will Always Have Faith In You” and a slammin’ trance mix of Eddie’s anthem “Knock On Wood.”
