After a stint with the Bar-Kays, J.Blackfoot
became lead singer in a new Stax vocal group, The Soul Children
(scoring 15 R&B hits between 1968 and 1978). Later as a solo
artist, and until his death in 2011, he placed R&B charters such
as “Taxi” and “Just One Lifetime”.
One of our favorite Blackfoot recordings is “Halfway in Halfway
Out”, written by Frederick Knight. The song’s hook will stay
with you forever.
