what is the difference between soul and r/b?

Is Teddy Pendegrass soul? Is Barry White?

I'd say it has to do with vocal presentation and tempo, more than anything, as they are otherwise very closely linked. And, in my own experience with the genres, soul tends to be more poignantly emotive, whereas R & B has a kind of sensuality to it.

i don't know if this qualifies as soul, but check out Lovage (Dan the Automater, Mike Patton, Kid Koala and Jennifer Charles)

Definitely doesn't qualify as soul in any way... it's borderline trip-hop. But yeah, that's one of my favorite albums... stellar production, Jennifer Charles being sexy, Mike Patton just being.

Actually, Patton is doing his best Serge Gainsbourg impression on this one.

Check out the OG if you like Lovage. You can really see where Automator got his ideas from.

Nice thread! I look forward to checking a bunch of these out when I'm at home..

In the meantime though, listen to The Bar-Kays if you haven't already! Awesome funk.
