Has anyone ever stumbled across any websites that focus on that mix of styles that can best be described as "rockin' soul" or "hard soul" or "rock / r&b" songs? I'm looking to expand my skills in that style, but I can't really come up with any good name for the style; the best I can do is refer to it as the 'harder edge of soul/r&b. There were many bands from the late 50s onward that often played this style - from King Curtis to James Brown , a large part of the Staxx roster, etc. and numerous singles ranging from "Cool Jerk" to "Sookie Sookie". Can anyone point toward any web sites where I can dig into the more obscure end of this style and maybe still uncover some gems that I'm unfamiliar with?
