Funky Friday - What Is Soul? This Is Soul!!
It had to be didn't it. After last week's post, there is only one album I could follow on with.
If you can't find the vinyl version (mine was just a mind-frying £3, from the Battlesbridge record man) you must grab the CD reissue. Lovingly packaged in dinky replica cover, complete with Atlantic logo liner, gatefold photo-spread and a walloping 17!! Yes 17!! extra tracks - including the delicous Barbra Lynn tune posted below. It's a must-have. In fact, just buy the bloomin' thing for the bonus bits anyway.
So, as we said at the start - what is soul? This is soul!!
Ben E.King - What Is Soul
Solomon Burke - Keep Looking
