Diggin’: Theotis Taylor – Something Within Me

inTheir Adventureson March 14, 2019


Theotis Taylor is from Fitzgerald, Georgia and  made his living harvesting turpentine. His singing and piano playing are utterly stunning. He is among the greatest talents of this genre. When I visited him when he was 90 years old, he handed me an old 8 track he issued in the 80s. Through his son, I acquired the original 8 track masters. My friend Bruce Watson painstakingly cleaned the mold off and remixed the tracks with some fresh musical back up to create this timeless masterpiece.
