re: Sweet Soul Music
I actually kinda hate the term "Northern Soul". I appreciate the fan dedication that helped the music find new popularity, but it has nothing to do with the North of England. It's American music.

for sure, but the new following of young brits and their appetite for Stax records and artists etc and the like brought some interesting interpretations into the early eighties music scene

Soul men run for groovy cover:

Shorty Long - "A Whiter Shade Of Pale" -- The Motown producer (he did the original version of "Devil With A Blue Dress On") gives the nonsensical lyrics quite a bit of conviction!

Brenton Wood - "Psychotic Reaction"

Al Green - "The Letter"

If y'all like old school soul and haven't checked out Charles Bradley, you're doing yourselves an injustice.

re: Sweet Soul Music


Derek Martin was born in Detroit in 1938 and like so many others got his start singing gospel. Through the '50s and into the early '60s he sang with doo wop groups -- one of whom, The Top Notes, would record the original version of "Twist & Shout"




Martin went solo in 1963. Although he never had a major hit on the pop or even R&B charts, he is regarded as a master by European soul fans, successfully touring in France as recently as last year.

"Daddy Rollin' Stone" (1963) -- This track was included on John Lennon's jukebox

"Soul Power" (1967) -- One of the great lost soul treasures of the late '60s. I will never understand why this wasn't a hit.

New Mavis Staples Biography Will 'Take You There'



quote:

There are vocalists, there are singers and then there are voices — the first aims for the ear, the second for the brain, the third for the heart. A voice turns a composition into an emotional experience. And each time we have that experience, it's the depth of the connection that we remember. Frank Sinatra was a voice. So too were Marvin Gaye, George Jones and Billie Holiday. Aretha Franklin is a voice. So is Bob Dylan. And so is the Staple Singers' Mavis Staples.

To hear Mavis Staples sing is to experience divine inspiration: She's a deep-voiced spiritual conduit with a sanctified syncopation. And as told by music journalist Greg Kot in I'll Take You There, the life story of Staples and her family is as compelling as their music.

Fame was achieved. Awesome. ...and it should have ended the thread but... arguably the best female soul vocalist of all times. And a special mellifluous Soul Train introduction from the late Don Cornelius And a special very melifluous Soul Train introduction by the late Don Cornelius.

Mary Wells - "Bye Bye Baby" (1959)

Mary is fondly remembered for her smooth pop hits like "My Guy", mostly written by Smokey Robinson and always given impeccably tasteful Motown production, but her first record (which she wrote herself) is a rawer, more emotional slice of gospel-influenced soul.
