    Great start to a lifetime soundtrack, Marv. My own would include a lot of Motown, Atlantic, and Philly. Mainly Atlantic from the '50s, Motown from the '60s, and Philly records from the '70s.

    They say this song was released in April,1973, but I distinctively remember there being snow on the ground when I first heard it on the radio, but oh well...........


  29. #29
    The Spinners were so popular in the seventies that all you needed was their current album and you had a party! Here's one of my favorite from those days - "Mighty Love" - 1974

    Happy birthday to you! Thanks for sharing. Awesome list! Hearing some of these songs for the first time. I got to download those.

  38. #38
    Luciano, you are most welcome and thank you! Yes, I am hoping we can all create an awesome, master list of Classic Soul Jams from various decades.

  39. #39
    Happy birthday, Marv2, you have selected the real "icons" of classic soul. In fact, IMHO, apart from the fact that i'm a Philly Sound lover, "In Philadelphia" album by Wiked Pickett is the best IMHO and also in the opinion of many music criticals.

    When I was younger and I was joyful and / or celebrating something, I started my particular "jam session" playing "I'm For Real" 45' by George Duke (with the hilarious scream at the beginning), continued with "Fishbite" by Ramsey Lewis and "Nursery Rhymes" by People's Choice and "Berta But Booguie" by Jimmy Castor...
