    Yea.. Lol
    And I agree, even in my relatively short and boring life I associate certain songs with certain memories!!!

    I must say I was more into the soul shouters so it took me a minute to appreciate how much soul Sam Cooke express without having to out run a song. Here is my favorite by him.

  25. #75
    EWF - Devotion. Love the live version. The harmonies on this song is awesome. This is more recent clip but the version from the 70's is the one.


  26. #76

    All the big kids on my block seemed to be singing this one back in the summer of '66. Mr. Jimmy Ruffin:


  31. #81
    From that same summer we have the Isley Brothers and "This Old Heart of Mine"


  32. #82
    Yes more awesome picks! Marv I was thinking about "This Old Heart Of Mine" to add. Jimmy Ruffin's "Brokenhearted" is just an immortal classic to me.

  33. #83
    Another Classic Soul JAM from the summer of '66...


  34. #84
    While "My Girl" is probably their signature song, "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" is my favorite. But they have so many classic songs.

  35. #85
    Thanks Luciano and great choice TomatoTom!

  39. #89

    Luciano, I went to see the Independents in concert in March of 1973 at what would be my High School. They were a brand new group and they were spectacular! This song "Leaving Me" was one of my favorites in 1973 and it still sounds great. Thank you!

    You can have a party with just that record right? You mentioned Angelo Bond. He is a great singer and songwriter out of Detroit. He recently produced a song for Mary Wilson for still unreleased CD "Life's Been Good to Me"!

    Luciano, speaking of the Dells. The next three I'm posting are a Triple play from the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti, Michigan area. First up, Miss Barbara Lewis with "Hello Stranger" backed up by none other than the Dells! From 1963:


  49. #99
    Mr. Deon Jackson and "Love Makes The World Go Round" from 1966:
