Although our introduction to soul was via Otis, it’s been the sisters who have always stirred our spirits, tugged at our heart-strings and made us want to sing from the rooftops. Although we think we’re now pretty broad in our tastes, it’s this music that got us collecting crackly records in the first place. So this month we pay our r.e.s.p.c.t. to a bunch of woman with strength in their (holy) spirits, fire in their hearts and soul to the bone, because whatever you’re doing whilst you listen, they’ll make you stop in your tracks and hold your head high.
