Taylor was a member of a family which produced a number of singers, the most famous of whom being James, but also includes Livingston, Hugh and Kate. Taylor had two sons, Edward and James. His son James is the namesake of his brother and inspired his brother James' 1970 hit "Sweet Baby James." Edward was adopted because of the young age of Brent, Alex's wife. Later, Alex and Brent had James.

Alex's granddaughters are Caroline (Edward), Anna-Kate (Edward), Paige (James), and Claudia (James). Alex Taylor's blues throat couldn't be more unlike his singing siblings, James, Kate and Livingston. As faraway from a sensitive singer/songwriter as could be, Taylor gives the blues treatment to classics like Howlin' Wolf's "Who's Been Talkin'" as well as to songs by contemporary writing greats, from Randy Newman ("Let's Burn Down the Cornfield") to Bob Dylan ("From a Buick Six"), as well as by lesser-knowns like Jesse Winchester ("Payday"). With searing guitars and evocative organ at work, the record serves as a sampler of what was going on at Muscle Shoals and Ardent Studios in the early '70s and captures the Memphis soul sound of the era. This is his second recording for Capricorn, remastered and reissued in 1999.
