Anyone a fan of Soul music? If so what are some of your favorite soul vocalist/bands.



If this needs to be moved to "others" just say so and i'll delete this thread.

I like soul a lot, though that's a pretty broad label. I'm particularly of fan of 60s stuff like Otis Redding and whatnot.

Yup, I love it.

Otis Redding is very, good.
Sam and Dave (though they don't have very many good songs)
Aretha

Also, Joss Stone's first album was very good. Really good bad, and she is a fantasically talented soul singer.

Off her second album there's only about 3 songs I'ld listen to. It's what happens when she starts writing her own songs :p

Yes, Joss Stone "The Soul Sessions" is unbelievable. Highly recommend it. In fact I was thinking about doing that for the Album of the Month. Amazing pipes. Hey and shes kinda hot too! Another plus of course

I love mostly sixties/seventies soul, like James Brown, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Supremes, Eddie Floyd, Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin. My favourite white soul singer is Joe Cocker.

Percy Mayfield is great. For those that don't know, he eventually became a prominent songwriter for Ray Charles (he wrote Hit the Road Jack). His own stuff is really good too. It's very bluesy.

edit: ^Haha, oops! You said Curtis. Well, I still recommend Percy just the same.

Al Green, Marvin, Sly and the Family Stone, Earth Wind and Fire.... So many good acts. Soul is what got me interested in music in the first place

I hate to sound like I'm repeating people, but Otis Redding is definitely my favorite, far and away. Wilson Pickett is a distant second. I guess I'm a fan of that kind of Southern "deep" soul. Redding's "Change Is Gonna Come" are amazing, as are his originals; my favorites would probably be "Sitting On the Dock Of the Bay" (obviously) and "I've Been Loving You Too Long." He was electrifying at Monterey.

Wilson Pickett...Duane Allman...and a Beatles song. It's an amazing rendition.

Edit- Can anyone tell me who did "Ain't No Sunshine"? I know originally Bill Withers did it, but I downloaded a different version that said Otis Redding did it. I checked the dates, and Otis was dead by the time Withers' original came out. Any hints as to who it might be? Keep in mind I thought it was Redding for the past week.

Any fans of Eddie Floyd?
I was lucky enough to see him play with Albert Lee, and Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings!

I know he wrote it, but it's not the original; I have the original and there's a distinct difference. And I know there's been like 500 covers of it, but I can't figure out who it is. I know it's not Buddy Guy, Freddie King, Al Green, or Tracy Chapman (sp).
