The HEART of SOUL


Come and get these memories with the sound of 60's soul!!


  When it comes to 60's soul, we can't go without Motown! It was started by Berry Gordy, who had spent 3 years at U.S. Air Force, then opened 3-D Record Mart.

  Ironically, it went bankrupt in two years. Since then, he had been working at a car assembly line in Detroit, when he happened to meet Jackie Wilson.
He tried making a song for Jackie and went hot. With the help of Holland / Dozier / Holland or Smokey, he successfully established the Motown Sound.

Among those singers, in my tastes, I say, Martha and Marvin are especially soulful.




  Yes, Motown is gorgeous and bright. But you'd like to feel deeper at night. HI, Stax, and Atlantic label are some of these types.
  Sam & Dave , Al Green , William Bell , Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding ... lots of southern soul singers, aren't they ?

My special recommendations, right now, are Carla Thomas and Etta James


  Thank you for coming. I'm on my way to translate the following into English. It is slow but steady. Little by little. Lots of small episodes and showcase of original albums ! Have fun and come back again, please. And let me know your impression.
