The Temptations – My Girl

I heard this track a few days ago and was reminded of what a great song it is. I was also surprised that I hadn’t posted it already.

The Temptations are Motown royalty, coming from The Motor City itself and this is just one of several iconic tracks they recorded.

Charles Bradley* – Where Do We Go From Here

One of the great pleasures of writing this blog over the past few years has been people sharing with me the music that they love and that inspires them.

This was one such track, which a good friend and regular musical co-conspirator sent me last week. It is right in my wheelhouse (soul, my first love) and given that I hadn’t heard it before it was a double pleasure.

It is taken from Florida singer (and general bad ass) Charles Bradley’s recently critically acclaimed 2013 album Victim of Love.

Dee Edwards* – I Can Deal With That

I stumbled across this track from Detroit singer Dee Edwards over the weekend and it’s silky smoothness has been on my mind since. It has also been way too long since I posted some soul.

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On?

I was just in the mood for some Marvin today. It really doesn’t get much better than this, the richness of the track and what must be one of the greatest vocal performances in history (hyperbole warning! – it’s certainly one of my favourites).
