 So many to choose from, Big favourite though would be Yvonne Baker - You Didn't Say A Word loved it from the first time I heard it in the late 1970's.

This is in my opinion Linda, s greatest song ever.  And relatively unknown.  Should be a monster.

Amazing track, Steve and if it’s relatively unknown it bleeding well shouldn’t be!

I used to play it out at various venues over the years and bore people into buying it. Should  be able to still get a copy for about £20 maybe less.

also done by the o'jays

great track

That's the first version I heard which is a great tune but much prefer the Linda Jones version.  It would have been amazing with the Ojays and linda together

I have had in a domestical K-7 during years by The O'Jays (practically all the "O'Jays Live!" album on Bell Records, jointly with other O'Jays songs from the 60's on Liberty and Neptune). This was the "walkman" era and this k-7 come with me at the mountain with other soul domestical compilations. Linda also covered a song original by The O'Jays on Neptune.

From the mid 70's to the present day, more than "individual songs", I NEED to hear again and again some complete albums like The O'Jays "Ship Ahoy", The Dramatics' "Drama V" or Marvin' "Here My Dear" or more "recent" stuff like the entire "Beneath The Surface" CD by Incognito... those albums contains songs that I can hear one time and another non - stop ilke "Don't Call Me Brother" or "Treat Me Like A Man"...

Bobby Womack - Standing In The Safety Zone , Pure bliss to my ears a record that starts of like a rock track then develops into a Womack classic the middle and the last section does me every time. 

Always a second play for this with the volume cranked up.

Another for me is Otis Clay -  It Was Jealously , this one leaves me rendered f**ked but another play is needed.

Talking of bobby womack always loves this 

 

Great pick mate - I was going to post that up later. Lyrically, it’s quite beautiful, and the vocals absolutely define Mr Womack’s unique voice. This single record really hooked my brother, whose never been into soul music. I now buy him Bobby albums for his birthday.

One of my top five artists of all time.

If I could play “ I’m through trying to prove my love to you” by Bobby Womack every day then I could play Millie Jackson’s version every hour

GOT TO BE AL WILSON PURE CLASS NEVER GET TRIED OF THIS FANTASTIC RECORD

 

My wife and I go on a cruise every year. On the t.v. In the cabin you can access the ship’s music channel. This is on it and it’s become our romantic holiday tune. It gets played over and over each cruise.

 Another one of my regular spins Lou Rawls - See You When I Git There 

The album "Unmistakably Lou", that I have as a present from my sister in my teens (she knows my musical taste!) was the one where I discovered Lou. Before I only knows "Trade Winds" included in the VV.AA. "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" (little after I purchased many other stuff by Lou on Capitol, MGM, his previous PIR album,...). Immediately I was "fallin' in love" with the whole album but specially with the intro of "Spring Again" and the jazzy "Early Morning Love". I read an interview with Kenny Gamble (don't remember where in the web!) on wich Kenny says "(...) the two albums I'm more proud for havin' produced are Lou Rawl's 'Unmistakably Lou' and Nancy Wilson' 'I'm Now A Woman' " (...)"

Bobby produced a very decent version by the Manhattans:

I Like this track too "Hank Hodge - Eye For An Eye (Eye 503)" The only youtube clip has a dodgy start & finishes about 30 seconds early?

& While were talking Eyes I Like this too melts me Everytime.

Yvonne Baker & The Sensations - Eyes (Argo 5412) 1962

Having Brown Eyes Myself, oh! & Him Indoors

Enjoy

Alexander Patton’s “A Lil Lovin Sometimes”

The epitome of our scene IMO.

Absolutely bang on.My favourite Soul Sound of all time a true Twisted Wheel record.As David says this record is what soul is all about, a 60's record and a timeless masterpiece,I had the pleasure of meeting Alexander in 2005. All the best Fred
