The sixties and seventies was the best era for this music. Superfly by Curtis Mayfield and Whats Going On by Marvin Gaye are two great records. What are some others I'm relatively new to this genre and would like advice.

Ain't a sorry one in the bunches mentioned . I can't believe it took several posts before James' got mentioned.
I gotta throw Jerry Butler in the mix ....and I'm gonna throw in the Supremes. When I was in elemantary school I really enjoyed their music. Maybe more pop than soul but wtf.

Tower of Power was mentioned. I would pay particular attention to:

East Bay Grease through Live And In Living Color (1970-1976)

Soul Vaccination (1999)

Oakland Zone (2003)

Avoid the Columbia albums from 1976-79 (quasi disco messes, poor vocalists), Power & Dinosaur Tracks (too slick/1980s) & most of the 1991-1997 albums on Epic (too slick & heavily synthesized)

It looks like a little funk thrown into some of the lists. I consider them 2 different categories of music but I dig all of the above! It's all good!!!!!!!!!
