Joanne Shaw Taylor - "Let Me Down Easy" video

Joanne Shaw Taylor comments on the song “Let Me Down Easy” – “This song was written by Maurice Dollinson and was recorded by Little Milton as a single released by Checker Records in 1968,” says Joanne. “The following year it was released by Stax Records on Little Milton’s album Grits Ain’t Groceries. I wasn’t too familiar with Little Milton. Joe is responsible for opening my eyes and ears to him. I loved this song from the minute he sent it to me. It’s also the only version other than now mine that I’ve heard of it and I’m glad I didn’t hear to many versions and thus make it more complicated for myself or question how to sing it. I got a clear idea from listening to the Milton version how I would like to perform it.”
