At times a stirring soul balladeer, organist/vocalist Toussaint McCall doesn't have a lengthy string of hits. But his 1967 version of "Nothing Takes the Place of You" was among that year's finest performances. It gave McCall his lone R&B hit, reaching number five. It was one of two singles he had that year for Ronn that clicked, the other being "I'll Do It For You," which made the Top 30. He has continued performing and recording for tiny Southern independents, but hasn't returned to the charts.
