Charles Earland's version of "More Today Than Yesterday," done in a single take, remains one of the galvanizing examples of organ combo swing. A perfectly locked groove allows for highly energetic solos from Earland and guitarist Melvin Sparks.
The title track came about when Earland and Houston Person, on a gig, began playing "Eleanor Rigby" with altered changes. Earland later composed the new melody in the studio.
Black Talk! went on to become an enormous hit, spending most of 1970 on the best-seller charts.
