This rip is from the EXCELLENT FUNK MY SOUL blog, which I implore you to get lost in for hours. As I have. -Ian!

Johnny Robinson’s sole studio LP remains a lost classic of Memphis soul. Produced by Willie Mitchell during one of his rare sabbaticals from the Hi Records stable, Memphis High captures a rougher, earthier sound than Mitchell’s landmark work for Al Green or Ann Peebles but proves well suited to Robinson’s gritty, impassioned approach. Robinson is a quintessential deep soul balladeer, rooted in gospel and haunted by demons. Mitchell’s slow-burning arrangements mirror the intensity of his subject, evoking the purity and turmoil of his psyche.
