So, I went to this quality club in Brighton a few weeks back - The Funky Fish Club. Absolutely brilliant, and I've decided I definitely need to listen to more of this sort of music - Soul, Motown, etc. So, knowing what an eclectic (sp?) taste in music there is on these forums, I guess someone can give me some pointers. Obviously I'm looking at Aretha, Redding, James Taylor, but who else should I get?

Cheers!

I'd have thought Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding would come under Soul, though. I could name dozens more artists, but it's best just to find some 60's compilation to find out what you like.

Shame on you for not mentioning Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and the miracles or Martha Reeeves and the Vandelas.
And Franklin and Redding have never been on motown.

Marvin Gaye
Aretha Franklin
The Temptations
Tina/Ike Turner
Otis Redding
The Four Tops
The Supremes etc.

There's plenty of good compilation CDs out there if you want to get started. It sounds dreadfully cliched, but they really don't write music like this any more.
