vintage soul music appreciation thread

post #1 of 176
Thread Starter 
thought i'd start one of these to share what i've been listening to, and to hopefully find out about some songs and musicians i haven't heard of. some recent favorite tracks: bettye swann - don't you ever get tired of hurting me the impressions - my deceiving heart marion black - who knows larry coney - more time to explain doris allen - shell of a woman chairmen of the board - pay to the piper candi staton - heart on a string dramatics - whatcha see is whatcha get the charmels - as long as i've got you (for hip hop fans, pretty much all of the samples from Wu-Tang's "cream" are from this track)

i guess i usually think of her as a jazz singer, but then again "break down and let it all out" is one of the craziest deep soul songs ever.

I generally like Northern stuff, dancefloor bombs. Joy Lovejoy - In Orbit (real version doesn't have the stupid NASA sample) A lot of the old stuff has terrible production and recording, hard to hear the instruments clearly.
