re: R&B Thread

This thread is basically a history of R&B in some ways lol. I was listening to that Babyface performance the other day. Where was that, soul train awards?

I was listening to a lot of Sade's band, Sweetback last night. They're real smooth:



My favorite. Perfect song to relax with:

re: R&B Thread

I think you're right, it is from Soul Train Awards 1993.

Those are some chill selections. I like the Maxwell song.

And since you mentioned history, I'm going to go back now. Back to one of the most influential and soulful artists of ALL time. A man that transcended music genres. Rhythm & Blues, Soul, FUNK, Hip Hop, Disco, Jazz, and the Blues. I'm talking about the Godfather of Soul JAMES BROWN.



I have a bunch James Brown records in my music collection. Grew up with this stuff along with BB King, John L. Hooker, Al Green, Ray Charles, Temptations, and so on going on road trips with my dad and my grannie.

re: R&B Thread

Anybody here fans of Frankie Beverley & Maze? Real old school type R&B.







If you don't know any of the songs above, you should at least know this one...

re: R&B Thread

No disrespect to Mr. Beverly but if you saw his performance at the BET Awards this year when the band was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award his voice just isn't the same. Some artists when they get older their voices fade a bit or get gravelly. However, his acceptance speech was uplifting. I've heard in their prime Frankie Beverley & Maze were one of the hottest live acts in the industry. I am a fan of the songs Notorious posted especially Happy Feelings!

Earth, Wind & Fire and The J.B.'s are my bands.

re: R&B Thread

Let's see what everyone's favorite artists and groups are by decade. I'll start, and I'm going to leave the 70's out of this for now since I'm not really sure. Probably leaning toward the Isleys for favorite group though.

Favorite 80's artist: Anita Baker
Favorite 80's group: New Edition
Favorite 90's artist: R.Kelly
Favorite 90's group: Jodeci (favorite female group: SWV)

90's R&B groups that I feel deserve more praise: Silk, Mint Condition, Tony Toni Tone

Overall favorite artist of all time: Sade.

Only put down the ones I could answer right off the bat.

The IWC has a bad reputation. Are you a part of the problem, or the answer?

re: R&B Thread

I just need to say that Clique? You're fucking awesome for naming Dru Hill as your favourite R&B group of the 90s. Madly underrated.
