Different band completely, that's why the US single came out in the UK credited to The American Poets

I stand corrected. I was led to believe they were white.

Presumably this is a CD for yourself rather than commercial release? To me, 'blue eyed soul' is where you clearly have a white singing voice with a soulful backing track for example the Outsiders, Tom Jones, loads of Beach Music sounds etc. Some of the tracks referred to in the thread are so 'black sounding', they can hardly be classed as 'blue eyed', and in fact, are so embedded as classic soul sounds, no one would regard them as 'blue eyed'.

A record can be classed as blue eyed and a classic soul sound.

 

why not ?

True. But 'blue eyed' usually means soulful despite being overtly white. When obviously 'blue eyed', more often than not it is regarded as slightly inferior than if it was an out and out black sounding vocal. Most of the time, classic soul tracks sound so black, irrespective of the artist, that the listener does not even consider they may be hearing someone who is not black.

Cobblestone became Magic Night on Roulette if that helps in anyway

I believe they were also Vito & the Salutations, of whom there are plenty of pictures. If that's right, they're blue-eyed.

They were all black. The juxtaposition I always felt though was that on this particular 45 (both sides actually) they sound more like the white garage bands of the eastern seaboard at the time! Superb record though irrespective of labelling.

Whether or not you are a fan of early 60s R&B, but this is one of the 'blackest' white female soulful recordings of our insular scene! And she's a civil rights activist. What more do you want!

RE- Bob Marshall & The Crystals - Now that has surprised me! I have the 45 and did stack it ready for the CD (for personal use only btw).

What about Chris Cerf - Sweet Music (Amy)?

..also, wasn't 'The Soul Communicaters 'Those Lonely Nights' a white group lead by Chuck Corby?

Chris yes, the Sesame St guy

Re Soul Communicators there's a thread on SS here somewhere that links Chuck Corby to them

Bob - I'll upload a pic or two as proof! There's one of them performing at a high school dance and another from the back of their LP

Chuck Corby was definitely white and The Soul Communicators was him on lead.

Charlie Gracie - He'll Never Love You Like I Do is a blue eyed classic and imo it is, and always was a horrible sound. Utopias - Girls Are Against Me is another classic which I rate very highly and to many others is a horrible sound, but mentioned above is Timi Yuro which imo is the ultimate example of a blue eyed classic.

One that I've been getting into lately is Charlie Rich - Don't Tear Me Down, wonder if this will ever become a classic.

There is a photo on one of the youtube clips of the Poets blew a good thing which shows a white group.  The Poets on Red Bird are black and went on to become Main Ingredient.

A photo of the Dexy's Midnight Runners as well and everything else that can go. Youtube is like Wikipedia, don't take it for a source, it's "fed" by "John Doe". The Poets on Symbol are black.

Just putting together a 'Blue-eyed Soul' compilation CD and was wondering whether I could include these Northern classics? I'm guessing they are white artists?

Ronnie & Robyn 

Cobblestone?

Ben Zine?

Paula Durante?

The Jades (I'm Where It's At)?

Wombat?

Living Color / Mystery ? Men (Thank The Lord For Love)?

Dawn (Love Is A Magic Word) or the other Dawn (I Believe They're All Talking About Me)?

William Bonny?

any chance to get one of these?

Wombat were (are) a country rock band the video below is them today. Joe Cryer (writerr of Gettin') emailed me recently confirming this. He is the drummer. Most people quote the record label as Gemini it is not, GEMNI is the label but our eyes deceive us!

watch the video and you will see other Gemni records on the wall.
