'J. Blackfoot' is a nickname John Colbert picked up during his boyhood years in Memphis, Tennessee. He broke into the music business at  age nineteen as lead singer of a new line-up of The Barkays, whose original members had died in the plane crash that also killed Otis Redding.
 

Isaac Hayes and David Porter (famed for their Sam & Dave productions) then recruited Blackfoot to sing lead in a new vocal group, The Soul Children (who scored 15 R&B hits between 1968 and 1978).
 

After the group split up, Blackfoot began his career as a solo artist, produced by Stax colleagues Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks. Success came with the R&B smash 'Taxiī followed by 'Just One Lifetime.í
 

FOOTLOOSE is an exemplary collection of some of J. Blackfoot's best and final recordings. In Late November, 2011, J. Blackfoot lost a long battle with cancer, and we all lost yet another member of the dwindling band of original southern soul brothers.
