In the early 70s Stax singer-songwriter-producer David Porter followed in the footsteps of Isaac Hayes, his former collaborator, with four albums for the Enterprise subsidiary: full of similarly elongated arrangements, elaborate instrumentation and supremely soulful vocals. "Into A Real Thing" is the follow-up to Porter's early 1970 album "Gritty, Groovy And Gettin' It", already available on Stax. Porter, with a new writing partner, Ronnie Williams, worked on this album in Muscle Shoals to create a similarly soulful set, but with a higher number of original songs than its predecessor. One standout track which wasn't their own is the radical revision of the McCoys' mid-60s smash 'Hang On Sloopy'.
