Patrice Holloway - Stolen Hours

Linda Jones - Just Can't Live My Life

 

But probably most of all Rita and the Tiaras - Gone With The Wind Is My Love, only because she sang a cappella to a handful of us fortunate to be in the studio when she was being interviewed at Prestatyn, and Kev Moore managed to get her to sign a record sleeve for me, yippee!

Must agree with you on Four Tops -  Ask The Lonely - was the ever a better record put to vinyl?

if there is I'd like to hear it - quite simply THE best record ever made (alongside Marvin's "What's Going On" of coarse, oh and Marvin's "Save The Children"

Yes, "Ask the lonely" is a good choice. Would add these :

 

Impressions - I've been trying

Aretha Franklin - Baby baby baby

Billy Butler - Let her love me

 

and doubtless a few others I can't recall now....

About 4 years ago, I had travelled to friday and saturday gigs to catch up and mingle with old mates. Sunday just flowed along like rest of the long weekend, catching glimpses and stories in a continued phase that I never wanted to end.

Monday morning comes and I head back to the slog of work, reminiscing. Mobile phone popped into ears as the music player honed random mp3s into my ears as I weaved the alleys on course to a humdrum day.

This song hit me as the strings introduced, the female vocals instructed me that her words were genuine, was that rain?

A tear nips out from the corner of my eye, I feel the emotion, the words......and the depth.

Almeta Lattimore - These Memories

This does it for me everytime , It's a tune I played a lot after my dear old Dad had a massive heart attack , god bless him  :(

 

AL GREEN - HOW DO YOU MEND A BROKEN HEART

 

 

and as above ASK THE LONELY , remember listening to some Northern Soul thing on the Radio one New Years Eve , pissed up by myself at home and some guy requested this for his Girlfriend ? who had passed away with cancer and I was blubbing like a baby , still wonder how he is .

Lots of stuff by Tammi Terrell - I get very sad when I think of how young she was when she left us.

Beautiful voice, beautiful woman - so much potentially great music lost.

Maybe like a few of you, the tears come a bit easier as I get older, but here are a few throat chokers:

 

Better - Ruby Winters

 

Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday

 

and, a bit left field - Stardust - Louis Armstrong (genius).

I don't know about actual tunes, but every time I see a documentary about Tammi Terrell, I can't help but blub. That footage of Ain't No Mountain high Enough, really gets me, she looks so happy.

Didn't we do this to death a short while ago?

Oh and stop embedding YouTube clips, it makes it impossible to read the thread for people on phones and tablets. If you must share your favourites just paste the link. P-L-E-A-S-E

I feel a bit of a fraud as I am not much of a soul fan, much preferring northern soul but I do get quite emotional to these four songs in particular:

 

No. 1 Clydie King The Thrill Is Gone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0V4tymoU7Ik

 

No. 2 Seems to be a favourite of many :

The Four Tops Ask The Lonely

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dN0JBOX6KLQ

 

No. 3

Sonny Charles and The Checkmates.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcA2IoE68rc

 

No. 4 Jimmy Ruffin What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQywZYoGB1g

Quite rightly,one with eny soul would cite the Four Tops ask the lonely...but as tastes rarely if ever co-incide,for me I have to admit it is the incredible atmospheric rendition by Bobby Rio ask the lonely,that rips the emotions...and a couple of tearful :ohmy: oldies
