Thanks man, heard the Marvin Gaye one and I like it a lot. I'll check the others out too.

Thanks again.

What are the essential Soul albums to listen to? More stuff like this. Classic material.

I've heard bits and pieces but know nothing about it.

Cheers guise.

I've been looking for some more funk to get into lately. I'm looking for stuff that's more on the side of funk than soul or R&B. Bands that have a similar style to the Red Hot Chili Peppers (specifically their Uplift Mofo/Freaky Styley phase), Parliament, or Bootsy's Rubber band. I've checked out Funkadelic and I like it, but it's a little too much on the rock side for what I'm looking for. Same with bands like the Ohio Players. A bit much on the soul/R&B side for my taste, but I can dig songs like Fire and Funky Worm for example. Stuff with some real groovy bass lines. That's what I'm looking for. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

I don't usually like soul, but I've been enjoying Bill Withers a lot lately.
Really like his soulful, but somewhat laid-back singing, the chilled, but funky grooves and the arrangements (especially the swelling strings).
Could someone recommend similar artists?

When I think of Bill Withers, I usually think of Richie Havens (and vice versa.)
Richie is much more on the folk side than the soul/funk side, though, so he might not be what you have in mind.


Richie Havens: The Lost Broadcasts DVD

The Isley Brothers recorded an album of mostly folk/rock covers in 1971, called "Givin' It Back" which includes a song by Bill Withers with Bill himself on guitar. Might be closer to what you're looking for.


The Isley Brothers - Cold Bologna (1971)
