What are the best modern soul tracks


Andykempster

Recommended Posts

I’ve been dipping my toe into the modern soul pond a bit more recently and would be interested in hearing what others consider to be the cream of the crop.

I know it is quite a broad description but in general I’ve been listening to late 70’s early 80’s releases, although as with everything there are always exceptions 

Album tracks also seem to be much more of feature

I’ll be looking forward to listening to any recommendations 

Cheers, Andy

Here's 5 to start that won't break the bank -

True Image - Different Kind Of Love

Love Committee - I Made A Mistake

Barrett Strong - Love Is You

Margie Evans - You Are To Me

Liquid Blue - Take It Anyway You Want To

No need to spend big sums, just enjoy!!

Cheers, Steve

Goldmine / Soul Supply did a great modern soul series back in the 90s. 6 CDs full of classics. Either get the CDs or go through the listings and see if they are on Youtube for reference. As a collection i think these are the best compilations in this genre.

Nice one Alan, I'll take a look

4,brothers guiding light, getting together

5, drizabone, pressure

These should do it, fella

Hi Stephen

A couple there I didn't know, I like the spinners, I'll get myself one of those I think.

As for the Lenny Williams, not heard that before but its not dissimilar to a lot of the early house stuff I like so a nice connection there

cheers, Andy

And from the albums -

Black Nasty - I Have No Choice

Barbara Mason - The World Is In Crisis

Impressions - Potent Love

Best of Both Worlds - Lost In A Shuffle Of Love

Betty Wright - Keep Feeling

Again, nothing too costly but quality all the way (in my opinion!!)

Cheers, Steve...….

How about some of the following.  I like 70s and 80s but have to be soulful.. 

Veda what it's all about 

Neville brothers dance your blues away

Bobby wilburn I'm a dreamer 

King tutt you got me hung up 

Tolbert you got it

Ray crumley she's so good 

Bridgette cooper get into the love groove.

Lifestyle Katrina

Pretenders just be yourself 

Johnny Bristol love no longer has a hold on me

J g Lewis dance lady dance

Winfield Parker I wanna be with you

Garfield Fleming don't send me away

Caviar never stop loving you 

Arthur miles helping hand 

Greg Perry it takes heart

Skull snaps I'm your pimp

Otis clay the only way is up

Dell's your song

Marlene Shaw don't want this feeling to last

Philip Mitchell I'm so happy. 

Mind & matter under your spell

Will Collins anything I can do 

Flight playing your games 

Mandrill too late 

Some of these not expensive at all. And remember we all have different tastes and views these are just some of the things I like.

Johnny Bristol - Waiting On Love on Atlantic 7”

Lou Rawls - Time Will Take Care Of Everything on PIR 7” was only released in the UK and Holland no US release on single and the UK issue copy is actually quite hard to come across

Leslie Drayton Orchestra - When Will You Be Mine on Love Is A Four Letter Word Esoteric Lp track

Great tracks that will get your toes tapping and won’t cost a fortune 👍

Leading me to think it's rare as rare can be

As they say, be careful what you wish for ..............

Here we go then, it’s like antiques roadshow, I haven’t cheated, I’ve not even asked Fiona Bruce what she thinks but I’m guessing the following 

Cheapest - Sidney Joe Qualls

Middle - Marcia Hines

Most Expensive - Harry Deal

Regardless of price, from the 3 I would pick Marcia Hines all day long
