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....

Betty Harris - What'd I do wrong

 

A sublime piece of deep soul. Betty wrings out the pain and despair in every syllable and those horns......... Cuts me up every time.

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.

Bobby Samson-Dont Leave Sublime (still can't believe he's from Brighton :D)

Ask The Lonely's a given of course.

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.

I would imagine owning a very expensive tune that's been broken or knicked would do it.Agree with Ask the lonely though.

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
