Testify! Review

by Al Campbell

Testify! gathers 22 early Otis Clay tunes recorded for the Chicago-based One-derful label in the mid- to late '60s. Cut before Clay made his career defining soul hits for Hi Records in the early '70s, he chalked up some amazing gritty gospel-inflected singles, including "That's How It Is (When You're in Love)" and "A Lasting Love." This is a good introductory retrospective from this underappreciated deep soul master and is the perfect companion to any of Clay's Hi Records material.
