You should realize that Soul has a timing issue. A lot of Chicago/electric blues, New Orleans rock n roll and almost anything recorded using the "Lieber & Stoller Kit", was in some form of Latin rhythm. Those are your basic precursors to Soul, so a lot of Soul is in a Latin time of some sort. Once y...

...His older stuff is more Ramsey Lewis Trio like. Thanks, that's what I wanted to know. Now I'm wondering. Seems that a philistine like me might like it as mood music, but how do people with an actual ear for this kind of music find him? How do the samples of his newer stuff sound to you? Is he a ...

What can you tell me about Roy Meriwether?

If you play any soul in your sets, you might be familiar with the southern soul monster cut "Make It Real (Ride On)" by Betty Adams. It turns out Betty Adams is really Jewel Meriwether AKA Big Maceo's daughter, and her brother is Roy Meriwether who was produced that record and it's Roy that I'm aski...

Bobby "Mr Blues" Merrell - I Ain't Mad At You
Earl Palmer's Party Rockers - Johnny's House Party (parts 1 & 2)
Riff Ruffin - That Night

(these are mostly R&B so if you don't have any Treniers you won't have these either)

Maybe you want some Enoch Light & His Light Brigade?
This is one you can inflict on all your swing loving friends, too!

Just about everyone I know with an interest in early Jamaican music quickly went and got the great Tougher Than Tough compilation. The second song in is Laurel Aitken's "Boogie In My Bones". You could easily slip it into the mix and no one would notice. But then again it is not a distinctly Jamaican...

I got pretty sick of "Waddaya Want" very quickly and its been on my do-not-play list for a long time. However, it has a catchy tune, it has lyrics people love to sing along to, it has fun breaks, and it has energy. A lot of dancers love it. There's a reason for that. It's a Leiber & Stoller tune or...

I've always wondered about them. Fidelity issues aside, I've noticed that a lot of their songs which I like change tempo more than a few times. I wonder what the ratio of dancers-who-like-that/dancers-who-hate-that is.

(Is there a thread on that here?)

Re: janis joplin and blues vs blues/rock

No, not exactly, Steve Cropper and Donald "Duck" Dunn were in the the Blues Brothers band. I don't think Booker T. Jones played in the Blues Brothers Band. Nathan Of course you're right, I was just trying to take the piss. (You know the Blues Brothers were pretty reviled by purists everywhere when ...

Re: janis joplin and blues vs blues/rock

she has a variety of stuff that ranges from blues to rock. (im talking here about her blues stuff: "one good man", "summer time", "ball and chain".) are these songs blues, or blues-rock? what is the diffrence? for me, the diffrence is whether the rythym section is in the pocket or not. hers definan...
