    Thanks for the tip off Belson

    OK, to bring this up to date, a little;

    New recordings that are touching the soul - go no further than the Abstract Blue label.

    Their output at the moment is phenomenal.

    Look for the Break Reform album 'Fractures', the 12" of D'Nell, and Low Budget Soul.

    Low Budget Soul 'Fills my heart', features Simon S on production and the extraordinary vocal talent of Randolph Matthews. Probably the finest vox talent I've heard for ages.

    Break Reform features Simon S with mate Joel producing, and features Nana Verporrian on vox. Probably the 2nd finest vox talent I've heard for ages.

    It's all on the down low, and it's all made with superb emotion with an ear for the history of their music.

    Go get it.........now!

    Linda Lewis 'Reach For The Truth' is doing it for me at the minute. Anything by Beth Orton is always needed. That Melba Moore track that's just been reissued. Lots of obvious stuff like Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, etc. Seventies Michael Jackson stuff too, some of it at least. And Girls Aloud.

    started a topic Music that touches your soul

    Music that touches your soul

    Hello all

    I've spent the best part of this Evening lying on my bed listening to Ella Fitzgerald's 'Sings Gershwin' and it never fails (along with The Rogers & Hart and Porter songbooks) to move me.

    I wondered what songs touch your soul? As I'm just about to go down the pub, my writing is not at it's most spiritual, but you get my meaning I hope.

    Here's a few from me off the top of my head:

    The Beach Boys - Till I Die
    Yusef Lateef - Love Theme From Spartacus
    The Dells - Make Sure
    Ray Pollard - The Drifter
    Almeta Latimore - These Memories
    A lot of Scott Walker songs
    Billie Holiday - Lover Man Oh Where Can You Be/My Man
    Ice T - Lets Get Butt Naked And Fuck

    Ok I lied about the last one, but what are yours?
Working...
