These are all part of the extraordinary soundtrack of U.S soul from the 60's/70's that I listen to in my studio.

 
Four Below Zero – My Baby's Got ESP  

Airplane take off strings score the plight of the lead vocal 'the ESP won't let us be'.

 

Eddie And Ernie – Bullets Don't Have Eyes

 

'And they never will'. They don't care who they hit.

 
Johnny Hampton – Not My Girl  

From the doom laden beat intro to the fade out 'no no no', perfect collision of northern soul, film noir and 'baby baby' chanting.

 

Bill Brandon – It's All Wrong, But It's Alright

 

Vibraphone and wah-wah production, not the same as the Dolly Parton song.

 

Ed Robinson – Temptation's 'Bout To Get Me

Has to be played loud. A man humming alone in his room, there's a little vibraphone and strings and then suddenly he's surrounded by a full gospel choir.

 
Big Maybelle – I've Got A Feeling  

R'n'b bongos and another mini movie soundtrack.

 
Arthur Alexander – I Need You Baby  

'My mama had to give us our cups and spoons, we lived in a shabby house in one shabby room'.

 
Rev Julius Cheeks – (If Serving God Is Wrong) I Don't Want To Be Right  

The most spine tingling Gospel workout of Luther Ingram's 'If Loving You Is Wrong I Don't Want To Be Right', has to be heard loud!

 
Sam Dees – Whats It Gonna Be  

Seems to evoke a movie I've never seen.

 
Jimmy 'Soul' Clarke – I Blew A Good Thing  

Deep soul goes funky, typical of the fantastic records Rob Ryan plays live if you get the chance to hear him DJ.
