So Just What is SOUL Music Anyway?....
Soul music made itís way north, east & west via the same train routes that carried rural Black workers from their homes in the south to the industrial north. As these "Blues people" made their way north, the music that they brought with them fused with the sophisticated urban sounds of jazz to create the sound first called "race music" and then later referred to as "rhythm & blues". As this music known as R&B began to gain acceptance among whites, it became split artificially and became known as "rock ní roll" (for whites only) and "soul" (for Blacks only).As far as we are concerned itís ALL Classic Soul !!!
