Hello fellow ATSers! Thanks for stopping in to check out some of the most soulful music on the planet.

In my opinion, soul is the best thing to happen to music since Mozart


Can you listen to this music impassively? If so, I'd like to check your pulse.


Kidding, haha but not really.

Now on to the music! Lee Moses, one of the best soul musicians ever to breathe life into the genre, sadly only recorded a couple of singles and one album in the late 60s early 70s, but these should be among the most coveted songs on earth. (Hyperbole? Not in my estimation
)

Just listen to this track (was two songs on the album, remastered here and spliced together).. is this not pure gold? At about 0:48 it starts getting real.

Here's a link to his album, Time and Place. Definitely one of the best in the soul genre.

It was so tragic how Sam Cooke died... HUGE fan of the Soul movement and wasn't aware of some of these artists. Thanks for sharing Zos - sending good thoughts your way my friend.

I love your taste in music, you're like the Dos Equis guy of ATS.

Except you're not a guy.

And you don't drink.

And you may actually be more interesting than him.

Hi Fam! Hey, I'm a little ashamed to admit I had no idea about Sam Cooke's death before reading your post (looked it up).

It is sad and a very strange case. It would be absolutely horrible if he was murdered and then his name besmirched with lies about the circumstances. I'll have to check into the case more. I just LOVE Sam Cooke's music.

I think you'll like the music


Sending good thoughts your way too, my friend!

Oh man, this definitely made me chuckle.

Thanks for the compliment Augustus. Glad you like the music.

And you are quite the interesting person yourself.

As you know, I'm not really a person, just a complex algorithm on a CIA server.

Well if Saudi Arabia grants citizenship to robots, there's hope for you yet!

Nice to see you HighRising


I'm happy to share, and just really glad for anyone who takes the time to appreciate good art. I have to admit, without Youtube I would likely never have heard so much this wealth of music.

For all of its faults, Youtube really does deserve credit for revitalizing these rather obscure artists!

Have a good one!
