Try out James Carr 'The Complete Goldwax Singles'. He's a little known soul singer who is best known for 'The Dark End of the Street' one of Duane's favorite tunes. You'll also get a little taste of a Skydog solo on the cover of the Bee Gee's 'To Love Somebody'.

He and Duane were both in the deal when Phil Walden bought Duane's contract.

James was a great soul singer, however he suffered from extreme mental illness.

I don't have this album YET, but a couple of weeks ago on the Mountain Stage radio program she performed several cuts from the above album and they were very good. I'll be buying this one SOON.

or Bettye LaVette

Bettye has a sort of raspy, but powerful vocal style - I like her. She puts on a good live show too. I have the above album and I've Got My Own Hell to Raise and like 'em both.

Just about anything on Stax label - Sam & Dave. Booker T & MG'S, Rufus Thomas - I think there'as pretty good Stax box set out there. Wilson Pickett, Percy Sledge, Otis Redding , Clarence Carter also come to mind.

Spied that one, myself. Will definitely be tuned in for this.

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/shows/stax/index.html

RESPECT YOURSELF: THE STAX RECORDS STORY premieres on August 1, 2007 on PBS (check local listings).

Between 1959 and 1975, Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee released international chart-topping hits such as "Soul Man," "Dock of the Bay," "Green Onions," "Midnight Hour," "Respect Yourself," and the theme from SHAFT. The label's artists included Otis Redding, Sam and Dave, Booker T. & the MGs, Wilson Pickett, Isaac Hayes, and even Richard Pryor and Jesse Jackson. Founded by a white conservative bank teller who played country fiddle music, Stax became the preeminent soul music label in America, and became identified with the civil rights movement of the 1960s and '70s. RESPECT YOURSELF documents the Stax label, its visionaries, and most of all, its music.

Although started by a white banker and his sister, Estelle Axton, Stax eventually became one of the largest and most successful black-owned companies in the country before it was forced into bankruptcy due to financial and legal troubles in 1975. The label was resurrected in December 2006 and Concord Records, which acquired it, has been issuing new albums, re-releasing classics from the original catalogue, and mounting special Stax Revue concerts across the country. The legacy of Stax and the artists who recorded there is also being kept alive by the Stax Museum of American Soul Music, now located at the site of the former studio on the corner of McLemore Avenue and College Street in Memphis. Discover more about the origins of Stax, initially called Satellite Records; the convergence of black and white music at the studio; and the first songs that put the label on the map in the essay by contributor Robert Gordon. Read an excerpt from Gordon's book IT CAME FROM MEMPHIS, about the city that gave rise to not only Stax but also two other venerable music labels, Sun and Hi Records, as well as the Delta blues. Watch performances by Otis Redding, Booker T. & the MG's, and the Staple Singers, and find a directory of the music from the program in the song list.

Maybe this is obvious but........

Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers

Nothing quite moved me like Sam's gospel years. Truly amazing.

For the Pop years, which is also awesome

Sam Cooke "live at the Copa", as in Copacabana.......is a great high energy recording..

Anybody else heard of "Neo-Soul"? I happened upon Jamie Lidell.

You can hear samples of his album Multiply & read reviews here:

I'll second this one. Simply great!
In case your interested: make sure that you pick up the remastered re-release
with bonus tracks and unedited versions. it's a 2cd (twice as long as the original LP's).

Cheers

BTW, there's an upcoming release from Betty Lavette that sounds promising.
She's backed up by the Drive By-Truckers. An odd couple but damn interesting.
Check her out live! Saw her twice in a year and she's fantastic.

Bettye LaVette Rocks With Drive-By Truckers On New CD


Soul vocalist Bettye LaVette is backed by Southern rock combo the Drive-By Truckers on her new album, "The Scene of the Crime." Due Sept. 25 via Anti-, the album finds LaVette interpreting material penned by such artists as Willie Nelson and Elton John. A track list has yet to be announced.

In addition to the Truckers, contributions were turned in by Muscle Shoals keyboardist Spooner Oldham and bassist David Hood, who is the father of Truckers vocalist/guitarist Patterson Hood. "To have recorded with Patterson's father all those years ago, and now to have recorded with both of them was singularly unique," says LaVette, who made an album at Muscle Shoals in the early 1970s that was shelved by Atlantic and not released until nearly 30 years later.

"The Scene of the Crime" is the follow-up to 2005's acclaimed "I've Got My Own Hell To Raise," which reached No. 4 on Billboard's Top Blues Albums chart.


The hard-touring LaVette will be on the road all summer, beginning June 7 at the Burlington (Vt). Discover Jazz Festival.

Marvin Gaye, the deluxe editions of both What's Goin' On and Let's Get It On. Also anything that the Funk Brothers played on. The Temptations Psychedelic Soul is a great set, The Four Tops, The Supremes, some of the best music out there. Also the Stax Anniversary Box Set is a must have. And Issac Hayes' Hot Buttered Soul and Black Moses.

One more (actually many more but who has the time,) Donny Hathaway. In my book, one of the greatest singers ever. And his duets with Roberta Flack produced some of the great singles of the 70s.

I heard Donnie Hathaway ond Roberta Flack this AM in the kwik shop I where I get coffee...."Where is the Love"....grat song, just flows.

And Marvin Gaye's, "What Going On?" LP. It was the first time in soul music history that a "soul" artist diverted from singing love songs and made some political statement....

The Staple Singers, Aretha, Stevie, James Brown....all great however which albums should I buy? Any other suggestions on artists?

Thanks!!


That really depends on what you want, as those artists all had long and diverse careers.

Aretha's I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You is very popular, classic 60s atlantic soul and lots of well known songs. The same goes for Aretha Arrives and Lady Soul. Personally, my favourite is Amazing Grace: The Complete Gospel Recordings which is a live album from 1972 recorded over two nights, if you like Gospel it's sensational. I don't know the Fillmore West album, but it's universally acknowledged to be excellent.

I love the funkier side of James Brown so tend to focus on the late 60s and early 70s. A couple of great live albums; Live At The Apollo Vol 2 from 1967 (get the deluxe version) is very good, but I think it's eclipsed by Love, Power And Peace from 1971, which is awesome. As for Studio Material, The Payback is simply a great funk fest with several longer cuts, plenty of jamming and a couple of soulful slower numbers which make the album.... easily his best studio effort. As far as compilations go, Foundations of Funk - A Brand New Bag: 1964-1969 is probably the best.

Other things you might like to consider

Solomon Burke - The 2 cd The Best Of is essential for any soul collection

Clarence Carter - Snatching It Back and

Wilson Pickett - A Man And A Half are almost up to the same standard

Lee Moses - Time And Place has recently been rescued from obscurity and is simply sensational, the best soul release for years. This guy worked as a session guitarist with Jimi Hendrix and has a great deep soul voice.

Howard Tate - The Complete Legendary Verve Sessions is another lost gem available from Hip-O Select

Tower Of Power - Tower Of Power from 1973 is obviously a different kind of creature, but this album has some great songs, some great playing and Lenny Williams has a great voice.

I'd also like to reiterate the endorsement of James Carr, never got the acclaim he deserved, although my choice would be the album You Got My Mind Messed Up

If I were restricted to just five soul albums they would be;

Amazing Grace
Love, Power & Peace
The Payback
Time And Place
And either The Best Of Solomon Burke or Tower Of Power, I can't decide which!

Hey there sweet family,

What Terri said! :-)

The link to Ryan on CBS's Second Cup Cafe is:
http://www.showbuzz.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/07/26/music/main3100304.shtml

There's a Derek Trucks Band poster on the wall behind Ryan and his band. Thank EZM for that catch.

Ryan's going to be at Duke University October 20. Terri, if you get here you know we've got you covered for room, board and transportation :-) btw, Duke box office doesn't have an on-sale date yet, but I'll keep checking.

Take care and know that you are loved,

Lana
