What is your genre?

Recommended Posts

I collect a specific genre of record: New Orleans R&B (50s), Soul (60s into 70s), and Funk (60s into 70s). I'm wondering how many of you specialize like that, or do you go for the best soul of all genres? (And do we consider "Northern Soul" a genre?) If you specialize, what do you collect?

Northern soul records, this includes sub-genres modern, cross-over, r'n'b, oldies, 2 step and any others that i can't think of at the moment.

Soul, 60s to late 70's-definitely not interested in the 80s type of stuff and the same thing goes for rare Funk records. 

 

I'm also an absolute sucker for 70s Blaxplotation movie soundtracks and own loads of them ,some are incredibly good and it's a bit of a shame they're not better known in my opinion..take something like J.J. Johnson's score for 'Willie Dynamite' for  example-terrific stuff! 

 

Oh and anything with interesting drum breaks that I can sample and chop up for my own production and recordings..again, I have a serious nerd/geek problem in trying not to obtain them and i have literally hundreds of these type of records on my shelves.

Soul records relating to the 1969 moon landing especially if they’re dissing it.

 

Soul records that reference the “I can’t believe I ate the whole thing” Alka Seltzer advert.

 

Soul records that refer to Richard Nixon.

 

Soul records that include spoken telephone conversations.

 

 

 

 

You made me remember in the intro of "Super Duper Man" by Bunny Sigler on his 1980 "Let It Snow" Salsoul album. Disco-Psychedelc Funk, very fool!!

Nothing in common with some other "conventional" telephone conversations in other soul tracks so populars as "Doctor's Order" by Carol Douglas or another one by Esther Williams (don't remember the title)

I started listening to my parents' 1930s-1940s Jazz, Jazz vocals, Jazzy Swing Bands, City Blues, and crooner groups like The Ink Spots, during the early '50s in Western Canada, where only corny Country and Western music was played on the radio.   When we visited family in Chicago during summer and Christmas holiday vacations, I heard R&B, Blues, and Gospel music in my uncles' shops in The Ghetto, on The South Side.  I started liking all the Black American music.  At first (7), I started asking my parents and grandparents for R&B records for my birthday and Chanukah gifts.  At 9, I started buying my own, going with my father and mother to thrift shops and record shops.  When R&B started changing into SOUL music, I liked and bought that, too.  So, I collect American and Canadian R&B, Soul, Blues, Gospel and Jazz music, from 1935 to about 1972 or so (but I own very few records issued after 1970).  I like ALL types of Soul, including Northern, Beach, Popcorn, Motown, Chicago, Southern, Deep, Afro-Latin, Salsa.  My intense specialisation and expertise is in Motown, Detroit, and Chicago '60s Soul, and Detroit and Chicago '50s R&B.
