(Uncut's) Gary Crowley asked Paul Weller to choose his ten favourite soul singers. "I could pick at least 40, but when I was asked to make this list, I wasn't just thinking in terms of black American R&B artists. These 10 singers who immediately spring to my mind as having a raw, soulful quality to their voice. Great singers, with soul". Paul Weller on Uncut magazine, September 2004 edition. (All the songs played here are mentioned on that interview as his faves, countdown order from #10 to #1, Marvin).
