Wilson Pickett-the exciting wilson picket
James Brown-sex machine(live)
Impressions-young mods forgotten story
Curtis Mayfield-s/t


I can't think of many albums, most soul singers were more singles focused.

other dudes:early clarence carter, betty davis, otis redding, mavis staples,

Marvin Gaye-What's Going on?
Otis Redding - Otis Blue
The Isley Brothers - Givin' it Back
Wilson Pickett - The Wicked Pickett
Aretha Franklin - I never Loved a Man the Way I Love You
Little Milton - Grits Aint Groceries
Four Tops - Reach out
King Curtis - Live at Fillmore west
James Brown - Live at the Apollo
Curtis Mayfield - Curtis

Before I came here I was scene kid who thought having 10 albums was alot.

Now I'm a jolly old fool who thinks his current collection of 250 albums is inadequate.
