I've always loved soul music. But it was a party just this past April that turned that love into a full-on obsession. My frie_nds and I had gone to The Green Eye, a bar in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood, for drinks when one of them said she knew of a party that happened to be in an apartment directly above the bar. So we went upstairs, and I knew as soon as I walked in the door it was going to be a good night. The DJ (well, the guy with the iPod) was playing soul. Good stuff. Uptempo stuff. Northern stuff. We danced in the living room into the wee hours of the morning while Blue Line trains rattled right past the window. Since then, I've been buying almost nothing but soul 45s, enhancing a collection heavy on Otis Redding and Sam Cooke. Like I said, I'm hooked, I'm obsessed. I feel good. I feel like dancing.

Always nice to see soul represented at AOTM... good range of lesser-known tracks.

Lesser known I guess but some great singers.
