Weight loss affecting voice....er...no, it hasn't. Her voice sounds stronger than ever :lol: If someone can find a clip of 'Rehab', perhaps we can talk about the tune and not the packaging... :D BBW Jo

Jo

I forgot to put this up :ohmy: on the weight comment, back to the voice :lol: ........ i`m no good & stronger than me sound very strong tracks............ she still has that bluesy jazz & soulful quality to her voice. From the picture she still has some dam fine packaging as well :lol: , anyone know if she`s doing any gigs to promote this album.

William Bell and Jesse James have just released 2 cd's, they aren't brilliant by any means, but a million times better than Amy Whinealot, am I being pedantic when I say it would be nice to debate such soul cd's rather than the latest press hype on SOUL Source???

Grumbling back to my gin and armchair, muttering the worlds gone barmy!!

Moaning Jock

PS I do agree she is/was a looker if that gets me out of jail even a little bit.

Ah Chalky, so where does that leave Nicole Williams, Joss Stone etc etc.....why should this be discussed in Freebasing when the record has soul content. This tune employs the same instruments as the majority of Motown records from 64-66 - baritone sax, drums, trumpets, bass guitar, lead guitar....so what you're saying, if they're contemporary white artists, they're pop/ dance and should be in Freebasing, if they're black artists.... whistling.gif Anyway, I'm not faffed - just thought I'd bring the tune to the attention of people on SS...and Jocko - I'd love to read about the 2 CDs you mention...shame you've buried the topic in this thread...reviews, track lists etc in a new thread :huh: Jo

The London Symphony Orchestra use those instruments too but don't make them a soul ban does it :D

I just didn't find the track mentioned particularly soulful and on listening again still don't, think it's pop pure and simple...just my opinion. :)

Okay I stand suitably chastised for ram-raiding someone elses thread, thought people would be used to my commando type raids to have a soul based moan (tongue in cheek but with a semi serious point I like to think) and then disappear coz I can never find the thread again.

As said trying to be semi funny, (and failing obviously) whilst trying to re-introduce a little of the soul police ethos back as I think they(we) are being very unfairly maligned in recent times.

Semi serious point I was trying to make, was if Amy Winehouse was black do you think she would have had so much publicity? I don't. And in answer to your question Jo, where does Joss Stone stand, well in my opinion she does have a pretty soulful voice but in reality has more in common with Mike Yarwood than Aretha Franklin, and again her background was as much a reason for her success as her voice. I don't think AW does have a particularly soulful voice but would be I think a pretty top notch jazz singer given better material.

And re your comments about instruments etc Jo, would that not make the Commitments the greatest soul group of the last few decades???? I don't think it's the colour of their skin that dictates whether they are soulful, it's the quality of their vocals within a well established genre. Apologies if I keep banging on about this but I think its quite an important point we keep missing on here.

Anyway as penance for the ram-raiding I will review the William Bell/Jesse James cd's tonight when I get home.

Cheers

Jock

I've put the promo video up in the Media section. How anyone can say this hasn't got soul is a mystery to me. What a voice.

I'll say it, that song has no soul content IMO, i can see she has great potential in her voice, its just the singing style is rubbish, perhaps if she actually sung from her soul there would be one of the greatest voices in todays music scene but singing like that, no chance!

Chalky,

William Bell's 'New lease on life' is on Wilbe Records - haven't heard it yet but if its half has good as Jeff Floyd's 'The power is still on' from the same labael, it'll be well worth a punt. Big bolloxed vocals :D

Jesse Jame's 'It's not so bad after all' is on Gunsmoke as usual - rather than me waffle on, have a listen to it on CDBaby :thumbsup:
