Soul In Waltz Time

Someone asked me this morning if there are many soul records recorded in 3/4 or Waltz time.

Can anyone think of any? I'm scratchin' me head here to think of one!

The middle section of the dreaded* Chandlers - Your love makes me lonely, actually IS a waltz.

(*see appropraite posting The Curse Of The Chandlers for reasons why it's dreaded)

Another tune in 3/4 is "Long, Long Winter" by The Impressions (b-side of "Amen", I think).

Thanks for that. You've got me thinking there may be some other Impressions recordings in 3/4.

Take it the 3/4 is 3 beats then 4 beats sort of thing, similar to a 4/4 :)

Actually, it's that it "hits" 3 times out out of a four bar measure. :)

Thanks for that. You've got me thinking there may be some other Impressions recordings in 3/4.

Here's a few Imps waltzes for starters:

Keep On Pushing

I Gotta Keep On Moving

Romancing To The Folk Song

...there are probably others that I'm struggling to recall at quarter to five in the morning!

TONE :ohmy:

PS - how about Big Dee Irwin's "Soul Waltzing" on Dimension - a record that very definitely 'does what it says on the tin'!!!!
