Not sure if this goes here but here goes.

Anyone have any soul music they recommend?

The only thing close to soul/R&B I have is Van morrison, and I want to get into more his type of stuff. With the brass intruments, and rich voice, etc.

Aretha is my favorite. http://vodpod.com/watch/1272088-aretha-franklin-the-blues-brothers-think-trilulilu-video-muzica

Followed by Sam and Dave http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFjtxxu1eMI

Otis Redding is a legend that could drive an audience out of their mind http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dael4sb42nI

I'm a fan of old school, raw and aggressive R&B

Once you get yourself into Ray Charles, who is a must, check out Donny Hathaway, the only man I know to have a better voice than Stevie Wonder.

I'd recommend Hot Buttered Soul by Isaac Hayes.
Matha Reeves and the Vandellas also have some great songs.

What got me into deep soul music was simply making a Blues Brothers station on Pandora.com. Worked like a charm, digging up lots of the people mentioned above

I've been listening to a lot of Otis Redding lately. It's really good stuff.

Yeah man, not only is he a great singer, but Steve Croppers guitar playing on Otis' songs is pretty much a how-to Soul Guitar guide..
#15
Yeah, Steve Cropper is really, really underrated. I think he also mixed/produced/whatever Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay, which is one of my favorite albums.

This. While I can appreciate Motown in all its glory for really down and on the spot R & B, nothing beats Stax-Volt.

ray charles- the genius of ray charles is pretty much the definitive R&B album, IMO.
