Default Soul,Funk,R&B Artists

comment on some of your fav.artist. / Otis Redding- is one of my favorite artist. I noticed that he used very little backup vocals, on most of his recordings. 'I Love You More Than Words Can Say'..is my favorite by Redding.

Classic soul album Two Steps From The Blues (1962) by Bobby 'Blue' Bland deserves a mention in this thread.
If there was ever an album that marks the change from R&B to soul...this is it!
Forget Ray Charles, this album is a defining moment.
It's all in the title along with awesome horns, gospel and pop phrasing, lifting it a few notches up from trad. Delta Blues.
Give it a listen.

Sam & Dave are at the top of my list.
I never get tired of listening to them.

That's a great choice.
Got to say my favourite is probably 'Little Boy Blue'. Not just because it's such a great track, but because it defines the moment with a mix of blues and gospel that made soul music inevitable.
A piece of music history packed into two and a half minutes.
