After "This Here Is Bobby Timmons" (1959), "Soul Time" (1960) was the second album recorded under Timmons' leadership. He handpicked an impressive cast of jazz musicians to complement his gospel style of jazz. This album contains four songs written by Timmons ("Soul Time", "So Tired", "Stella B." (named for his wife) and "One Mo'"). "The Touch of Your Lips" was written by Ray Noble, "S'posin" was written by Andy Razaf and Paul Denniker and "You Don't Know What Love Is" was written by Don Raye and Gene de Paul.
