(REAL NAME)   
 
I Want To Be With You [European Import]
1.  I Want To Be With You [European Import] by Dee Dee Warwick
The list author says:
  "Being one of the most soulful, underrated singers of all time, she never got the recognition she deserved, even though she recorded some of the most treasured gems in soul music history. A must."
£20.96   Used & New from: £3.50

Walk On By: THE DEFINITIVE DIONNE WARWICK COLLECTION
2.  Walk On By: THE DEFINITIVE DIONNE WARWICK COLLECTION by Dionne Warwick
The list author says:

£8.61   Used & New from: £0.60
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Midnight Train to Georgia: Janus Years
3.  Midnight Train to Georgia: Janus Years by Cissy Houston
The list author says:
  "I can't believe this album has been discontinued. It's absolutely fantastic. Her aproach to a song was more similar to that of her cousin Dee Dee than to her daughter Whitney. Outstanding."
£31.95   Used & New from: £20.34
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Private Numbers
4.  Private Numbers by Judy Clay
The list author says:
  "Judy was, arguably, one of the best -and, sure enough, the one with the lowest tone- in her 'adopted' family, which also included Dionne, Dee Dee and Cissy. Check as well The Bluesoul Belles Vol.4."
£12.98   Used & New from: £12.97

Sweets For My Sweet/Sweet Sweet Soul
5.  Sweets For My Sweet/Sweet Sweet Soul by Sweet Inspirations
The list author says:

Petals: The Minnie Riperton Collection
6.  Petals: The Minnie Riperton Collection by Minnie Riperton

£32.95   Used & New from: £19.95
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

The Chess Box Set
7.  The Chess Box Set by Etta James
The list author says:
  "A singer with great vitality and the ability to modify her style as musical trends changed, Etta remained a favourite of rhythm'n'blues followers from the early 1950's to the early 1970's. A classic."
£65.99   Used & New from: £25.07
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Very Best Of
8.  Very Best Of by Fontella Bass

£6.99   Used & New from: £3.70
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (9 customer reviews)

Time is on my side
9.  Time is on my side by Irma Thomas

On the Loose/Trapped By a Thing Called Love
11.  On the Loose/Trapped By a Thing Called Love by Denise La Salle
The list author says:

£10.36   Used & New from: £8.72
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Caught Up/Still Caught Up
12.  Caught Up/Still Caught Up by Millie Jackson
The list author says:
  "Jackson, whose rich vocal texture is similar to one of her idols, Gladys Knight, made the pose of adulteress or of wronged wife popular, a style that later verged a little bit too much on self-parody."
£11.24   Used & New from: £5.98
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

The Best Of: THE TK YEARS
13.  The Best Of: THE TK YEARS by Betty Wright

Candi Staton
15.  Candi Staton by Candi Staton
The list author says:
  "The records Candi made in the 70's are some of the finest examples of what is known now as southern soul. Tough, funky, dirty, soulful and proud, they still sound immense today."

4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (23 customer reviews)

The Money Recordings
16.  The Money Recordings by Bettye Swann
The list author says:
  "Along with her Capitol catalogue (see 'Bettye Swann'), Swann's  Money recordings were uncompromisingly soulful, rife with fluid licks and amped horn parts - the missing link between Motown and Stax."

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Souvenirs
17.  Souvenirs by Bettye LaVette

Don't Change Me Now
20.  Don't Change Me Now by Mavis Staples
The list author says:
  "The exceptional lead voice of the Staple Singers began a simultaneous solo career when the group was signed to the Stax label in 1968. This compilation of that period is something you shouldn't miss."

Do You Still Feel The Same Way
21.  Do You Still Feel The Same Way by Tommie Young
The list author says:
  "A southern soul rarity, this lady should have achieved more than she did. This is the re-issue of her one and only album, plus some bonus tracks. You should give it a try. It's definitely worthwhile."
£27.85   Used & New from: £11.99
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Lost Soul Queen
22.  Lost Soul Queen by Betty Harris
The list author says:
  "Nearer To You (67), was one of a few hits for this accomplished singer who has not reached the commercial success her talent deserved. And, by the way, why can't we have her work properly re-issued?"

4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Soul on Soul
23.  Soul on Soul by Jean Wells
The list author says:
  "Discovered by producer Clyde Otis, he signed Wells to the New York-based Calla Records in 1967, where she recorded a few hits. It is a pity that such a great soul voice has such a meagre catalogue."
£32.95   Used & New from: £16.43
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Sister Love: The Wb Recordings [Limited]
24.  Sister Love: The Wb Recordings [Limited] by Lorraine Ellison
The list author says:
  "She had an incredible vocal power, range, and intensity that was perhaps too heavy for the record-buying masses. This 5000 copies limited edition contains all 3 of Ellison's Warner Bros. Lp's + bonus."
£59.41   Used & New from: £28.85
