Although he was primarily known as a successful songwriter, who penned a steady stream of R&B hits, Titus Turner enjoyed a parallel recording career. This unique compilation presents the very best of his own recordings between 1955-1962, for a half dozen different US record labels, viz: Wing, Atlantic, King, Glover, Jamie and Enjoy. Included are his US hits "The Return Of Stagloee", "We Told You Not To Marry" and "Sound Off (Duckworth Chant)" as well as the title track "Taking Care Of Business", which was hugely popular in the New York clubs. Also includes his original versions of songs like "All Around The World", "Big John", "Get On The Right Track Baby", "People Sure Act Funny" and "Soulville", which became hits for Little Willie John, The Shirelles, Ray Charles, Arthur Conley and Dinah Washington respectively. Several of these sides are serious collector's rarities, unavailable elsewhere on CD.
