I take it, by your song list, that you're from Chicago, Frankie B. Or are you THE Frankie Beverly, from Philly?

There is only one song that I play the most, and that's "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". I've been listening to that song since I was about 6 years old.

No, Im not Frankie Beverly, but thanks for the compliment. I am fond of Chicago music, but the Motown and Philly material is good as well. I grew up in the south suburbs,and listened to WLS mostly, however, the WVON and WJPC signals came in real well and I took every opportunity to listen. WVON played a good selection of "dusties" and they stuck pretty close to the local artists. That's the only reason I gravitate towards Chicago music. It's northern and southern sound all on one 45. Just a tad more earthy than Motown, but not gritty as the Stax/Volt stuff (no offense intended to southern soul fans)

Hey Frankie B. I'm from the South suburbs, too (after a short stint in South Chicago (92nd & Chappel). 183rd Street in Homewood. I used to listen to WVON. I put Chicago Soul right up there with Motown. I like Philly next, and N.Y. and L.A. Sounds after. Stax-Southern Soul after that. Seems we have very similar tastes. Of course, I also like '40s & '50s R&B, Chicago Blues, Delta Blues and Jazz.

Hello Robb K! Yes, I know Homewood well. There was a great used record store there near the train station called the "record swap" I got a whole lot of early Vee Jay and Chess LP's there for next to nothing. Of course, at that time, they were just "old records" that no one wanted. (can't believe no one would want a mint Wade Flemons LP on the maroon VJ label for $5.00 even in 1985). I am originally from Joliet, but had a few buddies from ths South Holland/Harvey/Markham area. What is your opinion (or anyones) of early 50's R&B like the Flamingos and Moonglows, Rhythm Aces, Five Echoes, etc. as they sounded on Chance and Parrot records. Lots of folks write off doo-wop as nonsense "doo doo doo-ding ding ding-yip yip yip", however the early 50's stuff has a different sophistication to it--sounds like it rose out of big band and swing arrangements. This could probably be a thread in itself, but whats your opinion on it.

Frankie B.:
That's my favourite stuff! Right up there with Chicago soul and Motown. I loved 1953-55 almost as much as 1963-66. The Flamingos on Chance and Parrott and early Checker is about as good as music gets for me. How could anyone outdo Sollie McElroy, and the rest of the group's tight harmonies. The Moonglows, Moroccos,Spaniels, El Dorados, Magnificents, Kool Gents, Rhythm Aces, Five Echoes, Clouds, early Dells and 1st Sheppards were all great. Chicago, like NY, Philly , and Detroit had a lot of great "street corner doowop groups". The "battles of the bands" were fantastastic in those days. You really got your money's worth when you saw groups perform in those days.

My favourite years in music are in the following order:
1964
1953
1954
1965
1955
1963
1962
1956
1966
1957
1961
1967
1960
1959
1958
1952
1951
1950
1968
1949
1969
1948
1947
1946
1945
1970
1971
1940-44
1972
1936-39
1973
1930-35

The 1953-54 high ratings are bouyed by the Chance, Parrott, early VJ, Chess and United/States product, but also include Five Keys on Aladdin, Larks on Apollo and other East Coast and Midwest Doo Wop and sweeter R&B, as well as some boogie woogie and jump blues, and Chicago Blues (Chess, JOB, etc), as well as Gospel and Jazz. Thank goodness I made a few friends at United Record Distributers!!!

Wow. Talk about "seperated at birth"! Gotta agree with everything you said, I enjoy all that Chicago doo-wop. It's got a different sound altogether than the other localities. Seems like all those labels used the same recording facilities (namely Universal) and thus the house band was loosely composed of the same musicians. The vocalists were unique sounding as well. Nobody sounds or phrases like Sollie McElroy did, among others. I was listening to "Little Man" by the Danderliers last evening and it's amazing how Dallas Taylor jams all them words into one in the last verse "I'mtiredofarguingwithyababyId onehollered tillmythroatdonegotsore". Really special. I started out collecting doo-wop recordings and in following the careers of the Dells, Impressions, etc. I just kind of stumbled into soul music. Interesting you list 1964 as your favorite musical year. Definitely a lot of good stuff that year, and certainly a point where a whole lot of musical worlds collided.

1964 had the cream of the crop of "The Chicago Soul Sound", as well as my favourite Motown year. In addition, "The Girls Group Sound" was best for me in that year, as well as NY, and Philadelphia Soul. L.A. Soul was tied for its best year then (I actually think 1965 was just about as good for L.A.). Jazz was also very good in 1964, and gospel held it's own. Even blues was still pretty strong in '64, and former blues singers like Little Milton, Little Junior Parker and Bobby Bland were singing a very good calibre of R&B or soul. Also, the off-Motown Detroit was my favourite that year. There were too many phenomenal performances in too many different genres for any other year to compete (to my personal taste, of course). I can't speak for anyone else. But listening to WVON, and radio in general that year was like heaven. I liked almost every song (a lot-except for a couple of novelty songs).

I guess I can throw my 2cents into tha mix. Originally grew up on the southside (Woodlawn area and spent a great deal of my time in Hyde Park) Now I reside up north,around the Edgewater area.
I visit the southside at least once a week.(I still have family there.) Plus,I make a once a month visit for 3 hours to spin some music,for a college radio station in Hyde Park.(hee,hee)

(Don,holla at me. I'm on this Thursday.)

All,

I play the Tempts the most. I also play the Four Tops & Curtis. I visit the Soul Club site when I want to hear others from back in the sixties.

www.thesoulclub.org

Type in the Miracles and listen to "Going To A Go-Go" & "Whole Lot Of Shaking In My Heart." I love that song.

IMO - most songs from the sixties are timeless - and more so than the seventies.
