When Father Hasil Cocteau, SJ; talked about The Marvelettes and Garnet Mimms in the Song Name thread I realised we didn't have a soul music thread, so here it is.

The videos that are posted in the UK are not available in the USA for some reason.
Sorry to say, I don't know anything about Bobby Womack.

By the time the 1970s rolled around, I was in Beefhearville and listening to Canterbury groups like Hatfield & The North, etc. The closest I came to soul music after than date - and it wasn't soul music - was ska and reggae with Toots being the favorite - I did buy every Sang Hugh 45 that came out [3 or 4?] and I did like a lot of what Marley did.

Chuck Jackson was always good to my ears but I left James Brown alone after Three Hearts in a Tangle.

That's such a nuisance about youTube.

Bobby Womack was in the Valentinos in the early sixties who were most famous for Looking For A Love and It's All Over Now which was covered by the Stones. He married Sam Cooke's widow. His solo LPs of the seventies are great but his career was later blighted by drug use. I saw him in a club in Birmingham in 1975 and he was fucking superb. Unlike a lot of soul acts at the time he'd brought his own band instead of a pick-up band of UK musicians which was common for black artists at the time. I saw him coming into the gig looking like Superfly. He stopped for a chat and signed my ticket which I've still got.

The Valentinos were very good and I liked what I heard on the radio by them. Are the Vibrations soul or RnB? - I considered them RnB

Hank Ballard traveled with a big band in the 1970s and put on good shows - I would place him in RnB too.

I think Otis Redding and Sam & Dave were soul and I was never moved to buy their records but I didn't switch the radio off if they came on.

I did buy records by Percy Sledge and thought he had good material and a good voice. Most of these acts didn't perform at venues in the mountain west.

Arthur Alexander had a golden period recording for London and Dot in the early sixties. He wrote this track, Soldier Of Love, A Shot Of Rhythm And Blues, Anna, and more. Despite being covered by The Beatles and The Stones (or maybe because of it) he never achieved the success he deserved. He was out of the music business for many years, scratching out a living as a bus driver. :(

Alexander got a lot of air play and I liked what I heard. At night radio was all we could get but we got stations from more than half the country. No radio signals got to us during the day. When I moved to SW Colorado I could get 4 stations during the day two of which were non-English language...4 stations, 3 languages.

At night, watching the stars & listening to the radio, Summertime came on and Wha?? That's great! Who is Billy Stewart?

Teaching old standards new tricks it 100% right - he was, if not unique, very close to it.
