The Soul Music You Won't Find On BET

Although Billboard has added a Adult R&B Chart, it's doubtless you'll find the Soul Music of your life on the regular R&B chart. But those old Soul artists didn't just retire. Most are still playing somewhere. I've noticed that the trend with the Old School singers is to release covers of Old School songs. Jeffrey Osborne, Patti Labelle and Freddie Jackson's latest are covers. For a good site about all this check out Soul Tracks - The Best In Classic Soul Music which has a lot of indie Soul stuff to look at and listen. It's bio page is good too, with the smarts to list Hall & Oates, Bee Gees and Simply Red. But where's Alexander O'Neal.
