The year 1961 was a turning point for black American music. Blues and rhythm’n’blues had been popular for many years, but by and large, the white acts were cherry-picking the best songs and taking them into the charts. By 1961, the black record labels were finding a way to make their own product more commercial so that it would appeal to a bigger audience. The music would take on a different name – Soul! It was a great term and even today when you say a record has soul, you mean that it has passion and commitment at its core.
