    Chicago Soul is truly amazing: Curtis Mayfield, Donny Hathaway, Minnie Riperton, Earth Wind & Fire, Sam Cooke... Need I say more? My favorite brand of Soul alongside Motown and Philly Soul.

    Don't forget the big guys, Herbie Hancock, Lou Rawls and Ramsey Lewis. They are true pioneers of Chicago's great sound.

    Looks like you guys know your r&b/soul! I made a group dedicated to music you like called 80's R&B/Soul. You'll find fans of bands/artists like Alexander O'Neal, Janet Jackson, Prince, Loose Ends, Rick James + more soulful people! Check it out if you like:

    Hi all. I'm pretty heavy into Philly Soul, with only moderate exposure to Chicago Soul, but I look forward to broadening my horizons. Scrobble On!
