Jeff Buckley – I Want Someone Badly

Whether it’s Rock, Folk, Soul, or Early Modern English carols, Jeff Buckley can do it all very well. Having drowned at age 30, he only released one official studio album, Grace, although there have been several posthumous releases from an unfinished album and some demos.

“I Want Someone Badly” was released on the Legacy Edition of Grace in 2004.

Dyke & The Blazers – My Sisters And My Brothers

I previously wrote about Dyke and the Blazers here. I’ve been listening to them a ton lately and can’t help but post another song. There isn’t much information about them on the web. Maybe because their front man Arlester “Dyke” Christian was shot to death at age 27, at the height of the band’s success. I hope you enjoy “My Sisters And My Brothers.” What a great song and only 398 views? Let’s pump this up! Share on Facebook, tweet, call your friends, or do whatever you do.

Soulive – Roll The Tape

If you’re into the new funk/soul thing, you can’t really go wrong with Soulive. They never fail to deliver melodies that exude funk and Eric Krasno never fails to deliver with some ripping guitar. This track isn’t about guitar though, it’s about horns. Does anyone hear the Bitches Brew influence? I wonder if that was intentional.

Otis Redding – Try A Little Tenderness

“Try a Little Tenderness” is a love song written by “Irving King” and Harry M. Woods, and recorded initially on December 8, 1932 by the Ray Noble Orchestra (with vocals by Val Rosing). Otis Redding’s live version from the amazing album Live in London & Paris starts off with a great soulful melody and then transitions into an upbeat groove backed by a fearless horn section. I put this entire album in the Daily Song Fix Store (see the tab – Listen and Shop!) because it really is an amazing album. Props to Joe @ Chowabunga for the song suggestion.
Update: The Live in Paris version stopped working so I embedded a different one below, still great!

Chicago – Movin’ In

Chicago is one of the longest running and most successful U.S. pop/rock and roll groups yet many people only know them for their most famous hit “25 or 6 to 4.” Out of 21 studio albums and 9 live albums, “Movin’ In” remains one of my favorite underplayed Chicago songs. It was written by Trombonist James Pankow and has a great melody, powerful horn lines, soulful vocals, and great horn solos.

Ozomatli – Cut Chemist Suite

“Cut Chemist Suite” is off of Ozomatli’s first album released in 1998. I feel a little out of the hip-hop loop for not hearing of these guys before considering MC Chali 2na and turntablist Cut Chemist were part of the group before focusing their efforts on Jurassic 5.

Aretha Franklin – The Weight

“The Weight” was a hit song by The Band released in 1968. In 1969 Aretha Franklin recorded a version with Duane Allman just two years before his fatal motorcycle crash. Their version of “The Weight” was the highest charted recording of the song in both the US and Canada.

Arthur Conley – Sweet Soul Music

It’s always nice to be informed about awesome Soul artists that I haven’t heard before. Arthur Conley may have been really popular in 1967 for his hit song “Sweet Soul Music,” but I had not heard of him until today. I look forward to discovering more of his work.
