This guy, Ben, L'Oncle Soul (Ben, the Uncle of Soul) has the top-selling album in France right now. The album was released on Motown France. He also sings in English. I really hope we'll see a US release of an album by him!

Here, he sings in English: a cover of the White Stripes song. He also does a great cover of Gnarls Barkley's Crazy.

The shots of him on the album cover remind me of David Ruffin. Maybe it's the glasses...

He's got some tempting Temptation-like back-up singers in this acoustic version of of "Soulman"! At the end he says "Thank you, guys!"

I listened to a couple of tracks on youtube last night and thought 'yeah thats ok' so I took a look on amazon to see if I could pick up the CD, it is on there for 28.00 and a LP is 50.00, think I will wait for a UK release!

Wow...28.00. Steep! It is $22.98 on amazon US (14.90) - I ordered from there. It's 12.99 EUR on amazon.fr (10.69). You could order from there... even with shipping, it would be a lot cheaper!
