It’s time to make a soul twist. One of the standout tracks is the one by Dee Dee Sharp. The echoes in ‘What kind of lady’ really make me shiver! Del Shannon and Frankie Valli (from the Four Seasons) are originally rock & roll singers, but they had hits on the R&B charts as well, because of their incredible falsetto voices. More info and music on www.professoreddy.blogspot.com Enjoy! Let me know which tracks you liked.
Prof, So funny that I stumbled across your page here. For a month now I have been thinking to myself that I need to go back and explore the great beats from Funk and R&B of the 70's, go looking for those tight sounds. Good baseline, grooviness. I searched for Bob Marley 9/20/80 Madison Square Garden concert, which I found on mixcloud. Never been to the site before. That ended and you came up next in the playlist, I think #33, then Soul Twist. I ended up where I was looking o begin. I appreciate your knowledge and passion for the topic. Many blessings.
Welcome to Mixcloud, Jim! I'm a big fan of soul and funk from the 1970s too. Check out some of my other cloudcasts, if you come around again.
Prof, my cousin, who lives in Amsterdam and does great work on imigration as a lawyer, posted this yesterday. Listening to it now. https://soundcloud.com/rc428/side-1-x-100 The guy seems worthy of following. Check it out.
