Sixties Soul and Rhythm and
During the 40s and 50s music by African-American artists were
coined Rhythm and Blues and you hear that term even today. In the early 60s the music was called Soul.
The record labels that had a major impact on soul music we listened to during the 60s were Chess Records,
Atlantic, Stax and of course Motown.
I have selected 40 great soul songs of the 60s. Of
course the list could have been endless and it was very difficult choosing just 40. I hope you enjoy
the songs I have selected.
