    Composed by Clay Hammond

    Depending on the source, Little Johnny Taylor was either born in Memphis, TN. as Johnny Lamar Young, or Johnny Lamont Merritt in Gregory, AR. The only fact that is nailed down is that he was born on February 11, 1943. In 1950, he moved to Los Angeles, CA. with his parents and was soon featured in his young age as a singing member of the gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Influenced by Little Willie John, he later moved to secular music. He made his debut blues/R&B recordings in 1960 fronting Paul Clifton and his Band on two 45 RPM's on the tiny Swingin' label. It wasn't until 1963 when he signed with the Galaxy label, that he achieved any success. His debut record for the label You'll Need Another Favor was a minor R&B hit. But then he recorded Part Time Love that went to number one on the R&B charts and even crossed over to the pop charts at number sixteen. Taylor stayed with Galaxy until mid-1969, not racking up any more hits for the label. He then moved over to Ronn Records out of Shreveport, LA. charting again with Everybody Knows About My Good Thing in 1971, and Open House At My House the following year. While he was at Ronn, he also recorded with Ted Taylor (no relation) as duet partners. Taylor only recorded sporadically after that. He remained as an active live performer until his death on May 17, 2002.

    Born Johnny Lamont Merrett on Feb. 11 1943 in Grgory, AR. This is the original Johnny Taylor. Little Johnny came to Los Angeles in 1950 and did a stint with the Mighty Clouds Of Joy before going secular. He debuted as an R&B artist with a pair of 45s for the Swingin' logo, but his career took off with Fantasy's Galaxy subsidiary in 1963. His first hit You'' Need Another Favor hit #27 on R & B charts in 1963 but it was his next hit where he hit the big time. His cover of Clay Hammond's Part Time Love went straight to #1 on the R & B chart and even crossed over on pop charts to #19. After some more minor hits for Galaxy Taylor eventually signed with Stan Lewis' Ronn label and scored big again with the hits Everybody Knows About My Good Thing & Open House At My House. LJT's chart success waned and it wasn't until the late 80s that he started recording often again with Ichiban Records. Although he never returned to the success of his glory days he remained active performing until his death in 2002.
