Recommended Posts

Brilliant as a piece of social history.

But never really rated him as a soul singer

File under Jackson 5

At least I was staying on subject. But if you wan't to discuss the Temps thats fine.

They worked well cos of a range of factors including the mix and range of voices/harmonies.

I'm not sure that a voice like Eddies (falsetto?) can ever be considered soulful when sung solo.

Happy to be proved wrong.

I've got a stop start problem when viewing these clips, I have a flash player installed but won't let me watch the clip without this, very annoying! :angry: , anyone got any tips

Lenny :ohmy:

OK, i'll chip in with my favorite.Aretha Franklin on American Music Awards.

Lenny, it's probably just the download speed. I have a decent connection and it still stutters at first. When the clip starts to play, hit pause and wait a couple of minutes till the shaded bar fills up then it'll play fine.

After watching the aretha and levi stubbs clip, and wanting to keep it, i had a look around the web and found this site. http://javimoya.com/blog/download-videos it shows you how to download the file and change the extension then convert it to a realplayer or windows media video. Download Cinemaforge for free, watch the flash animation and your ready.

I've downloaded loads of soul clips including most of the soul train stuff.

OK , so based on your logic Col :P ,

Not too sure what the above symbol means - crash helmet, balaclava, smog, fear of falling rocks?

Happy to start with Smokey Robinson. Described by Bob Dylan as America's greatest living poet. That guy could turn out a tune. But vocally a waste of space. Never did it for me, can't think of a good record he made. Think about it - Bobby Womack, Darrel Banks, Smokey Robinson - who are you going to vote for?

I have deduced that the symbol has no ears and is therefore self explanitory :P
