Michael Bolton - Once In A Lifetime
Michael MacDonald - Sentimental Fool
You've Lost That Loving Feeling
Soul & Inspiration
Like the other Michael though. McDonald & LaBelle's ON MY OWN is one of my favorite songs. Sadly right now I can not name his very popular group.
What was the name of Michael McDonald's group? I think he recorded for Warner.
It would be interesting to know who was behind these so called "blue eyed" soul singers.
It had to be the REAL THING.
"It's A Beautiful Morning" - Rascals
I like Michael McDonald.
Michael Bolton........hmmmmm I'll deal with him later !!
Would anybody also put Hall & Oates in this category ??
If so what songs by them do you dig ?
(Just in case anyone feels the need for a "doobie in their FUNK"................LOL)
The Dobbie Brothers themselves as a group is another that I would say is worthy of inclusion as "blue eyed soul brothers" !!
(it ain't about race....it's about feeling !!)
Steve Winwood of course started out as a 16 year old kid from England who had a voice that sounds just like Ray Charles. Remember the big hit by the Spenser Davis Group "Gimmie Some Lovin" ???
Well that's Steve Winwood on lead vocals & it's a Soul Classic !!
However Michael Bolton is merely a "Ray Charles Imitator"......I wonder how the "blind junkie" feels each time Michael Bolton is given yet another award or sells another million records.
I know that some will disagree with me on this but Michael Bolton is yet another reminder of the reason why we are losing our musical heritage to the point where even Soul music one day may no longer be recognizable by it's originators.
As far as AWB I would consider them to be more in the FUNK category.....but in some respect that is like splitting hairs !!
They of course are fantastic and their stuff comes straight from the heart with real feeling !!
Any thoughts on Mitch Ryder or Dennis Coffy ??
I’m--"groovin on a sunday afternoon"
One on One
Open All Nite
just to name a few...
I will have another name for you as soon as I can get my thinking cap straight.
skipping, so perhaps senility has finally set it (G)
Can anyone trace the term back any further?
Anybody remember who the artist was?
Others from England to consider might be:
· Tom Jones
· Boy George
· George Michael
· Simply Red
can you think of any others ?
I think that your headphones may be too tight......lol
(sorry but I couldn't resist that one........and I'll stop now !!......:)
Back in the day "Man Eater" was a favorite of mine. lol
Anyone else a Teena Marie fan ???????

Hell, I've even had the good fortune of seeing Mick & the boys do it live at Shea Stadium in NY....a few years back during the "Steel Wheels" tour.

Seems that the United States has no monopoly on Soul music !
(I wonder what they are feeding people over there ….lol)
(I’m..basically a rocker at heart…..lol)
The Stones may well have done more to popularize Black music on an international basis than anyone. But many Blacks consider them to be "ripoff artists"....nothing could be further from the truth the Stones are badd....period !!

Influenced by Little Richard, Hank Ballard, Howard Tate and BB King, Angel started singing rhythm and blues on street corners when he was twelve. It would take forever to list all of his favorite singers, but a few standouts are Sonny Til, Nolan Strong, Pookie Hudson, Arthur Prysock, and Billy Eckstine.
When Angel was 15, he joined his first band as a bass player and eventually played with the legendary "Grandfather of Rock 'n Roll" Chuck Berry. He was the lead singer for the South Florida group The Kollektion and had his own group called GC Dangerous with Gene Cornish of the Rascals. Angel was the lead singer for the critically acclaimed group Diamond, Angel and Crooks. He has worked with such notable people as Dion, Matt (Guitar) Murphy, Bobby Byrd, Robbin Ford, Darlene Love, John Lee Hooker, Chuck Jackson, Paul Schaffer, The Blues Image, Harvey Fuqua and The New Rascals.

Dubbed "the white woman with the black voice", she is impossible to truly categorize. Some will classify her as "Jazz", some "R&B", some "Neo Soul", some "Pop".
However my feeling is that most of you won't care about the category and just dig on the music...This charismatic singer/songwriter with echoes of Laura Nyro, Minnie Riperton and Anita Baker, explodes the stereotype of conventional R&B with her vibrant stage presence and richly textured voice. Louise is of that rare breed of singer/songwriter who actually embraces her audience, inviting them to join her on a journey of the soul.
