last week it’s been all soul music for me.  I’d been turned on by the 5th Dimension after a down period, and then I moved on to Billy Preston and Esther Phillips.  Billy’s not the best songwriter but man he’s got soul and his organ is top notch.  I’ve been listening over and over to his live in Europe album from 1973–it’s EASILY one of the best live albums I’ve listened to and the energy and content give King Curtis’ Live at the Fillmore a run for it’s money in my favorite live soul album category
