If you ever find yourself in conversation with a devoted fan of early American RHYTHM AND BLUES, they will most likely gush with passion over LAVERN BAKER.
It feels weird putting HIP HOP in the OLDIES category, but I guess we’re finally at that point in history. Here’s a tune that deserves way more credit than it gets.
Image has become so vitally important in music. It’s not necessarily that today’s artists need to be pretty (although that helps immensely), but they do need to visually fit the musical style that they are representing. I doubt we’ll ever see another performer, like RAY CHARLES, rise to fame. That’s not the only thing that…

When there’s something about a particular song that you haven’t heard before, it can end up leaving a lasting impression in your mind. Some of the below songs are a few years, or a few decades old, and the ground they broke…
