Eddie Giles – It Takes Me All Night (by SVM77)

Eddie Giles (now the Rev. Eddie Giles and still in Shreveport) was, along with Reuben Bell, one of the pillars of Shreveport soul, first coming to prominence with the classic “I’m A Losing Boy.” An early 1970’s collaboration with Jerry Strickland led to this Southern soul gem, “It Takes Me All Night (To Do What I Used To Do All Night).” The song was cut at Sound City Studios, Stewart Madison’s studio at 3316 Line Avenue in Shreveport in 1971.   The building still stands, although it is now a furniture store.
