re: Sweet Soul Music
Mickey Murray - "Shout Bamalama" (1968)

IMHO this version is superior to Otis Redding's original. The singer sounds remarkably similar to James Brown.

An upcoming documentary aims to highlight Atlanta soul musician Lee Moses for a new era. The documentary, "Time and Place," focuses on Moses' life and the soul scene in Atlanta during the 1970s. The documentary takes its name from Moses' solo album. The album has become a staple of Southern soul despite not finding commercial success when it was released.

Lou Johnson (February 11, 1941 – May 1, 2019) was an American soul singer and pianist who was active as a recording artist in the 1960s and early 1970s.
quote:

In 1962, Johnson signed as a solo singer with Bigtop Records, run by the Hill & Range music publishing company in the Brill Building. There, he met the songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who wrote Johnson's first single, "If I Never Get to Love You". Neither that song nor his second record, "You Better Let Him Go", were hits, but his third single, "Reach Out for Me", also written by Bacharach and David and this time produced by Bacharach, reached No. 74 on the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1963. However, as it rose up the charts, the record company collapsed so limiting the record's success. "Magic Potion" - the B side of "Reach Out For Me" was also written by Bacharach and David and became popular on the UK's Northern Soul scene, first being played at Manchester's Twisted Wheel club in the late 1960s.

Johnson signed to its successor label, Big Hill, and continued to record Bacharach and David songs. In 1964, his original version of "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me", with backing vocals by Doris Troy, Dee Dee Warwick, and Cissy Houston, reached No. 49 in the US charts. In the United Kingdom, a cover version by English singer Sandie Shaw rose to number one on the British singles chart.

Johnson also recorded the original versions of several other Bacharach and David songs that later proved to be bigger hits for other musicians. "Reach Out for Me", "Message to Michael (Kentucky Bluebird)" (originally "A Message to Martha"), and "(There's) Always Something There to Remind Me" were all American hits, also produced by Bacharach and David, for Dionne Warwick.
"Always Something There To Remind Me"/"Kentucky Bluebird" aka "A Message to Martha" (1964) -- The original versions, from American Bandstand. The smoother Dionne Warwick would later have hits with both ("A Message To Michael")

"Walk On By" -- a soulful remake of Dionne's hit, produced by Allan Toussaint

re: Sweet Soul Music
Magic Sam - "That's All I Need" (1967)

I'm surprised this classic isn't better known. It sounds like a smooth Motown song given a rawer blues treatment.

Magic Sam probably would have probably gone on to become a major name if he hadn't died in 1969, age only 32.

The Knickerbockers - "Playgirl" (1966)

The Jersey boys who did the classic Beatles soundalike "Lies" also did this soulful number.

A couple of years later it was covered by a Milwaukee band in sunshine poppy but sill catchy style. This got national airplay and almost made the top 40:
