There's an old saying "You can take a person out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the person." Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff surrounded Joe Simon with M.F.S.B., hot songs, and Bobby Martin's arrangements, and Simon still comes off sounding country, but in a positive vein. "Drowning in the Sea of Love" shot up the charts, settling at number three R&B and number 11 pop, and was a certified million-seller. This album is the most successful of Simon's career. "Pool of Bad Luck" nearly duplicated the success of "Drowning"; both songs were similar to productions Gamble & Huff were doing with Jerry Butler. Simon's thick Southern drawl didn't discourage record buyers at all; "I Found My Dad" is the most country-based song on the album, with the same flavor as his past R&B number one hit "The Choking Kind." The ballads are as effective as the up-tempo numbers; "If" and a remake of the Stylistics' "You Are Everything" demonstrate Simon's versatility. Though an unusual marriage at first glance (similar to when Holland-Dozier-Holland announced they were going to produce Junior Walker), it worked extremely well, producing some of the best songs of Simon's career.

Les Grands Angles...
Aretha Franklin, reine de l’Atlantic

Entre 1967 et 1979, Aretha Franklin enregistre pour le label Atlantic ses plus grands albums. Des disques imprégnés du gospel de son enfance qu’elle plonge dans le rhythm’n’blues pour redéfinir les contours de la soul moderne.

La nu soul en 10 albums

Au milieu des 90’s, alors que le hip-hop vit son âge d’or, la soul entame aussi sa révolution. Avec Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Jill Scott et quelques autres, le genre retrouve la classe, la sobriété et le raffinement qui animaient les albums de Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield ou Roberta Flack. Après les années de règne du R&B sirupeux ultra-commercial, la nu soul, nettement plus underground, ravive la flame de la soul originelle, dans ses arrangements comme dans ses textes. Un mouvement bref mais hautement influent.

Motown en 10 albums

Le label fondé par Berry Gordy a 60 ans. Référence ultime en matière de pop soul, il fut une incroyable usine à tubes pour Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Rick James et bien d’autres. Motown a commencé par exister à travers ses singles, le format populaire de l’époque. A partir de 1965, il s’adapte à l’avènement de l’album, le bon vieux 33 tours qui chamboulera la carrière de certains artistes maison et de ce label qui se proclamait « le son de la jeune Amérique ».
