Kings of Soul BBC4

Only just seen this so it's already on (Friday 27th March). Probably a repeat, but in case you're browsing, might be worth a watch. Billy preston at moment, Tempts before and started with Brenton Woods I think.

Have to say I was really disappointed, as I generally am with the BBC and especially BBC 4. It was like a Poundland soul compilation IMHO.

Fair comment, although of course Bobby Womack did get a slot, so not all bad.

with youtube and all , think be easy to throw our own similar 60 min worth of 'kings Of Soul' together using video clips in replies here

what do ya reckon ...

if 1 member  nominates 1 video only , and  only have one video from each  artist

20 vids needed for the 60 mins video so 20 members shouts needed

and if we get them in a short time we have own own and maybe different take

anyone like to start us off...

Evening all

Many of the singers on my list have gone in already. I therefore go for Levi Stubbs with one of the finest soul records ever made. There are lots of clips on the net, but this one shows the quality of Levi's voice managing to shine through over a band that is a bit to harsh. Love it, only been banging on about it for 50 years or so.

I've had my vote but if someone was feeing generous they could adopt this Chuck Jackson treat with Burt Bacharach on organ.

I wanted Hand it over as an offering but couldn't find a live clip.

Nice one - I got a copy of this in a soul pack years ago and you could just hear the soulful quality from the outset. Soul packs certainly helped to broaden my tastes, as while I was after Northern, the more interesting range you'd get if choosing a soul pack has given me much more enjoyment down the years I think. Plus of course, back then, the perception of Northern still had a lot of room to grow, and some stuff that I liked came into the mainstream in due course.
