Hey we need a thread in here talking about R&B and Soul Classics..Afterall where would we be without it??With that I'll introduce to you the Bar-Kays.

The Bar-Kays were formed in Memphis, TN, in 1966, growing out of a local group dubbed the Imperials. Modeled on classic Memphis soul instrumental outfits like the Mar-Keys and Booker T. & the MG's, the Bar-Kays originally included guitarist Jimmy King (not the famed bluesman), trumpeter Ben Cauley, organist Ronnie Caldwell, saxophonist Phalon Jones.

Some of my favs from this group...."FreakShow on the Dancefloor","Shake Your Rump To The Funk",and "Shine"

Yes "sex o matic" was one of their all-time biggest hits.I just hated when they started changing band members.Their sound suffered for it.

I really enjoy listening to RnB and Soul music, with the Temptaions being my favorite group of all time. In fact they were the first concert I ever saw. Being 17 a lot of this music is beyond my time so I'm not as familiar with a lot of groups, which is why I really enjoyed this thread. I listenen to a bunch of Bar-Kay tracks and I really enjoyed 'Hit and Run" and "Holy Ghost" as well as "Sexomatic". This is a great thread and I look forward to more groups to check out.

Good thread Dre.

Is this going to go back to the guys who set the table; Junior Walker, Sam and Dave, Wilson Pickett, Archie Drell...the originals from Motown and Stax?

Me, I grew up on Motown, the Beatles, Santana, Hendrix; then came a real love for the Philadelphia Sound, which goes back all the way to the early 60's and developed right alongside the rest.

Motown overshadowed Philly for a long time, but the Philadelphia Sound broke out with the founding of the Philadelphia international label in '71, starting with new and re-released material from acts like Billy Paul and The Jaggerz, (Donnie Iris' original band, when he was still Dominic Lerace :wink: ) then hitting big with The O'Jays, The Sound Of Philadelphia, The Three Degrees; (aka TSOP) Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, (featuring lead singer Theodore Pendergrass); the group of PI house musicians which formed MFSB, (Mother, Father, Sister, Brother) with The Three Degrees on backup vocals.

Then came acts like Lou Rawls and the Stylistics, and later even Patti LaBelle. But the guys behind PI, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, didn't just put their stamp on PI; they produced and arranged - and their house musicians played - on other Philly labels' acts: The Delfonics, The Temptations The Spinners, Blue Magic, Eddie Kendricks.

And no, that's not off the top of my head; check out the source, these guys did a wonderful job with their love of the genre:
http://www.bsnpubs.com/columbia/pistory.html

Also check these for even more extensive and richer appreciation of the history of the Philadelphia Sound, back to the times when jazz still hadn't given its gift of shaping modern music; back even to a time when the phrase described an orchestral sound.

Oh yea this is all stuff I was raised on.You have to love the history.Can never forget these guys.Without them most of the "cheap" stuff w'ere getting these days wouldnt even exist.Man I miss the "music from the heart" days.Music was so much more personable then.I reminisce alot just so I can get away from all the negative stuff thats out now.True talent did actually exist.

Music history's full of sad stories like that.

Janis Joplin and Kris Kristofferson were together for a time before she died; she went back to LA to do some studio work on an album, but took one of his songs with her to see if she could get it into the new album, which would become Pearl, her last.

Not too long after, Janis died; shortly after that, Kristofferson received a copy of the cut she had recorded of his song, Me and Bobby McGee.

You know Dre, I think about that a lot. I'm a person who has never lost touch with the pulse of music, except when it has gone places that I just don't find appealing.

Lately, I've been searching my soul for the reasons that I'm so repulsed by what has become of rap. Now, before anyone gets on a big crusade, this is meant as honest thought for discussion, not controversy.

I followed rap from when I started hearing about this street music from New York, which told stories through spoken lyrics. Before I actually heard it, I tried to think of what I had heard that would give me a frame of reference for that, and all I could come up with was the part in Knights in White Satin where Richard Burton talks with the music...and William Shatner's recording of Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.

Then I heard Rapper's Delight, and I said, "Ohhhhhhh...that's what they mean."

As the genre evolved, I followed it. Later when I heard NWA's Straight Outta Compton for the first time, I wasn't surprised; I had worked in Liberty City, Overtown, Bunche Park...I had seen the desperation firsthand, and I remembered the columns of smoke that so many times represented the constant anger felt every day by people held down in these places.

As the genre evolved more, I have to say that even I was angered by lyrics that talked about killing cops; it was a long time before I forgave Ice-T for Cop Killer. But then again, I knew what that came from. Even before Rodney King, we had Arthur McDuffie; an unarmed motorcyclist who failed to stop for police trying to pull him over for speeding, McDuffie was beaten to death in Overtown, suffering repeated blows to the head with maglites and nightsticks. Three days of rioting followed, expressing the community's outrage; three more days were endured later when his murderers were acquitted after a farce of a trial in which the defense was permitted to assassinate McDuffie's character, rather than defend the actions of the murderers.

Anyway, my point is that no matter how dark the message, I could understand it, even if it made me flinch a little.

But you have to understand that the music made by NWA, Ice-T, Dre, Snoop...that was all about describing a way of life, a response to real circumstances by human beings, real people.

But tell me...what the **** does 50 Cent's music describe?

Oh, yeah, there was a time - long ago and before the Bentleys and McLarens - when 50 Cent was a banger, and life was tough; and if he were still rappin about that, well...OK, it's been a while, but it's legit because of where he came from.

But now? Now you have the manufactured, made-for-record-sales "feuds..." how 50 is gonna pop a cap in the game's ***, how the game betta not step...whatever! And these kids, the ones buying all those albums, don't realize that it's theater, no different than pro wrestling, it's all a set-up to stir emotions, because emotions sell records.

It's all corporate now; and the guys with all the money - who, regardless, still want your money too - are making this **** up as they go along, and with the years-long, systematic lowering of standards and expectations from our entertainment they don't even have to work that hard at it.

And the guy I'm most disappointed in for fostering and nurturing and perpetuating this voluntary ignorance? Dre. Because, of the rest - the others in the record industry, the Tommy Mottola's and their ilk, I had no expectations - but I always held Dre in high regard for what he did, what he was a part of, what he accomplished. And then he goes and foists eminem on us. Boy, there's one punk I'd happily disabuse of his notion that he's some kind of tough guy.

So I've listened, and yeah - the beat is good, the hooks are there; if you had no expectations of your music, what the genre has become would do just fine. But it's empty, devoid of anything resembling meaning, except the meaning it has to 50 and eminem's accountants and mortgage brokers.

They're rappin about ****, they're talking about nothing more than protecting their "bling;" it's as if Donald Trump could rap, and he rapped on track after track about how no one was gonna cheat him on a real estate deal. Oh, and how he handled his *******. Real gripping stuff, that.

Actually, I'd buy the Trump album before I'd ever buy anything by eminem.

Well like you say it is a business.And todays youth like controversy and this is unfortunately what sells records.Im not not sure I want to blame the rappers themselves for it all, because there was a business before they actually knew anything about making money in music.Now that they know how to manipulate the press and make music that every kid in America wants to buy, they do whatever it takes to "get that money". Its really gotten bad.

Its bad because theyre doesnt really seem to be a high regard for human life anymore when it comes to "getting to the top", and making the most money.Even if it means death for the other man.Its a world of "let me see how many people I can get to like me",and Im "bigger and more powerful than you".There was violence before all of them were born.So rappers didnt create it.I mean look at how people to this day praise gangsters.John Gotti, Bugsy Seagal,this guy they think is buried under a football stadium cant think of his name right now.No different in rap.And your'e right its a me first world now more than ever.I hate that.And thats part of the reason why I wanted to start this thread so that we could talk about music that was positive and has a better influence.

I liked the old days when they rapped about something.Im with you.Now its all about who has the most dough and bling for the most part.Its not as fun anymore.Im not saying all of its bad but man its just really going in a direction that doesnt seem to be going anywhere.I wish I were an artist now.Id change the game.Id be different.Until somebody comes along to change it its only going to get worse.Where was it ever written that it was "cool" to die over music?Kids perceptions of cool these days are really bad.Whatever happened to just making good music?

Unfortunately yes Dre perpetuates alot of stuff now,but only because it makes money.And I do think its partly because of powers greater than him that this is.These record companies are HUGE.And if he doesnt go to work he doesnt get paid.Not to say I know him personally but the question would have to be "would he be doing this if it didnt make money?My guess would be no.It would be awfully hard to sell "nice" and "clean cut" for him because of who he is.Anyways I hope this R&B thread starts some good convos and people learn about more the genre.Nothing like expanding ones musical horizons.Its great music.Its what I grew up on.And I know you know that Nabo.I just wanted to add my thoughts on the whole thing.Heres to looking forward to some great conversations about R&B and classic soul.

todays group: brick

brick was a group out atlanta that brought a fusion of funk and a bit of jazz - their biggest hit "dazz" was a song about disco/jazz and peaked at #3

samples below...

Man, that's sweet. I was only aware of them through Dazz; very distinctive sound.

Nabo, that was a well thoughtout post.

For rap of today, I wouldn't say I stick strictly to the "underground" because most of what I like is still well known, but it's still not the stuff that gets airplay nowadays.

Stuff like 50 Cent is garbage, and Trick Daddy, Ying Yang Twinz, anything Cash Money does...I don't even like Jay Z. I almost htink DMX is largely also at fault for the mainstream rap decline.

today's mainstream rap isn't even good sonically--I once heard a rumor that is probably an urban legend, but epitomizes today's rap: that one of the Ruff Ryders producers was sued for using one of Casio's pre-programmed beats as a beat on a song.

True? Probably not. But it wouldn't surprise me if it were :)

Here's an internet station from yahoo that's dedicated to Gaye and other soul acts of the period.

Also, on amazon I found a lot of his performances on dvd, including Live in Montreaux 1980, recorded live performances from 1964-1981, and one gem - a documentary just released about the man and his life (in the separate link).

Exactly. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised by something genuinely witty like bringing a cigar onstage while you sing a love song than see the chili peppers onstage, naked save for a sock on their dongs. :rolleyes:

RUFUS! :lol: I always kind of got a kick out of the name, because my neighborhood butcher was named Rufus. A great guy, and an unsung hero to a lot of folks in the community. But I digress...

I remember when Tell Me Something Good hit big, and the band was named simply "Rufus." Then Chaka wanted better billing and got her name added.

Andre, different subject...how do you like the new outkast?
There was a thread on this subject a few days ago announcing the new song Might-O.The consensus on this message board was that they didnt like it.Well Im not so sure what there is not to like about it.I mean Outkast does what I expect them to do every time.Be different.You have to be real careful about new Outkast music.They always change the ballgame and do the unexpected,so I think you have to listen to their music that way.I think everybody who replied in that thread that didnt like it will remain a fan and probably more than likely buy the new album.Personally after listening to the new song a few times more,Im enjoying it more and more. I do wish they would have released a song called Rats and Roaches for their first single though.

As for the last album I was really digging Andre3000's half of the album.Always new and ecclectic energy.Hes very talented.I wasnt real sure what Big Boi was trying to do.I liked The Way You move, but after that I got lost.Word is,is that Andre wanted out of the contract that held he and Big Boi together.He wanted to do his own thing.Not sure how true that is but I think he could make it on his own.Big Boi needs him more than Andre needs him.However I dont ever want to see them break up.Best rap group out right now.

Yeah, I keep hearing mixed reports; I think it's because of what you said.

Funny thing is, everyone who reviews the album brings up their last one - so why are they surprised that this one is different? They should know by now what they're listening to.

sly could write lyrics too...

everybody is a star...

Everybody is a star
I can feel it when you shine on me
I love you for who you are
Not the one you feel you need to be
Ever catch a falling star
Ain't no stopping 'til it's in the ground
Everybody is a star
One big circle going round and round

somebody's watching you

pretty pretty pretty as a picture
witty witty witty as you can be
blind cause your eyes see only glitter
closed to the things that make you free

ever stop to think about a downfall
happens at the end of every line
just when you think you've pulled a fast one
happens to the foolish all the time

games are to played with toys etcetera
love is to be made when you're for real
ups and downs are caused by life in general
some are yours no matter how you feel

live it up today if you want to
live it down tomorrow afternoon
sunday school don't make you cool forever
neither does the silver of your spoon

the nicer the nice the higher the price
this is what you pay for what you need
the higher the price the nicer the nice
jealous people like to see you bleed

somebody's watching you...


family affair

It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
One child grows up to be
Somebody that just loves to learn
And another child grows up to be
Somebody you'd just love to burn
Mom loves the both of them
You see it's in the blood
Both kids are good to Mom
'Blood's thicker than mud'
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
Newlywed a year ago
But you're still checking each other out
Nobody wants to blow
Nobody wants to be left out
You can't leave, 'cause your heart is there
But you can't stay, 'cause you been somewhere else!

You can't cry, 'cause you'll look broke down
But you're cryin' anyway 'cause you're all broke down!

It's a family affair

The lead vocalist was Larry Blackmon. He was an ex-Juilliard student and New York City club-goer that formed a band with a membership of 13 called the New York City Players. Blackmon, Tomi Jenkins, and Nathan Leftenant formed the group's nucleus. The Casablanca label signed the group to their Chocolate City offshoot, and shortly after that, the group changed its name to Cameo. Their excellent debut album, 1977's Cardiac Arrest, was highlighted by four singles. Three of those were on the Billboard R&B chart: "Rigor Mortis", "Funk Funk",and "Post Mortem". They were inspired by groups like Parliament, Funkadelic, and the Ohio Players, Cardiac Arrest made Cameo's case for belonging in the same division.They played all their own music.

Michael Jackson has returned to the studio and plans to release a new album next year for a record label owned by the son of Bahrain's king.

2 Seas Records, which is owned by Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Al Khalifa, said Tuesday it had signed an exclusive recording agreement with Jackson, and the new album was tentatively scheduled for release in late 2007.

Jackson, 47, moved to the Gulf state soon after being acquitted of child molestation charges in California last year. The 33-island archipelago is about the size of Rhode Island.

"I am incredibly excited about my new venture and I am enjoying being back in the studio making music," Jackson said in a statement released in London on behalf of the Bahrain-based record label.

Does anyone remember that peculiar, distinctive smell of the inside of an old recoed player? It was kind of electric, like ozone just before lightning, combined with the smell of the felt that covered turntables before they started using rubber.

I really, really miss that smell. What we have today is great, and I wouldn't want it any other way. But CD players don't have a distinctive smell, and iPods, great as they are (and they are) just don't have any smell at all.

it's a great video to watch - you get to see what this thread is all about: personality, style, funk, soul, musicianship, showmanship... i would rather listen to the studio version though - the tempo is slower and it brings out the pure heaviness of it better - but then if i was in the ohio players, i'm not sure i could have kept the tempo down either :lol: - that song is pretty exciting

If you think about it, in a world in which we're so inured by bad acts that crimes like shooting someone - simply because you don't like them - is glorified in song, and people who get away with their crimes are admired instead of scorned; sex with a child is still the one crime that will elicit disgust from even the most hardened. So yeah, I expect this won't fade away fast.

Absolutely right. It's so sad, today he looks like a bad caricature of a human being rather than a person. I wish he weren't so screwed up, but the way he's bleached his skin I'm not sure he can ever regain normal pigmentation again.

By all means tell me that for all the bleaching it took to get his skin that way,there has to be a way to get some pigmentation back.I hoped he would at least cut his hair, he would probably at least look human.Maybe just maybe he has a surprise for us all.

I really think, unfortunately for him and the music lost, that he just gets stranger and stranger. It's a good example of how in such an insular world as his, mental illness untreated goes rampant and destroys what could have been a truly great life.

On a different subject Dre, have you heard The Meters? Funk/soul group out of the Big Easy; used to be The Funky Meters about 20 years ago, but changes their name a while back. Check out their samples:

The Nevilles aren't really funk at all...nor can they really be thought of as soul, other than for the fact that they're black; I put them in with acts like Michael Bolton or Peter Cetera for the closest genre match. The Nevilles are really only slightly hipper.

Yea thats right..Hes was in that Andrew Dice Clay movie...Dice was recently in the news again for something crazy.Something about his career going down the tubes.Anyways I think Ice-T may have been the first solo-rapper to use guitar riffs in his songs.Run-DMC being the first rap group.Then the Beastie Boys.Tone Locs last album was 1991's Cool Hand Loc.To my knowledge isnt recording anything else.
