You've never heard of Sam and Dave? And you're voting them down? That's just flat out sad.

from Wikipedia:

Sam & Dave were an American soul and rhythm and blues (R&B) duo who performed together from 1961 through 1981. The tenor (higher) voice was Samuel David Moore (born Samuel David Hicks on October 12, 1935), and the baritone/tenor (lower) voice was Dave Prater (May 9, 1937 - April 9, 1988).

Sam & Dave are members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and are Grammy Award and multiple gold record award winning artists. According to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Sam & Dave were the most successful soul duo, and brought the sounds of the black gospel church to pop music with their call-and-response records. Recorded primarily at Stax Records in Memphis, Tennessee, from 1965 through 1968, these included "Soul Man", "Hold On, I'm Comin", "I Thank You", "When Something is Wrong with My Baby", "Wrap It Up", and many other Southern Soul classics. Other than Aretha Franklin, no soul act during Sam & Dave's Stax years (1965-1968) had more consistent R&B chart success, including 10 consecutive top 20 singles and 3 consecutive top 10 LPs.[1] Their crossover charts appeal (13 straight appearances and 2 top 10 singles) helped to pave the way for the acceptance of soul music by white pop audiences, and their song "Soul Man" was one of the first songs by a black group to top the pop charts using the word "soul", helping define the genre. "Soul Man" was a number one Pop Hit (Cashbox: November 11, 1967) and has been recognized as one of the most influential songs of the past 50 years by the Grammy Hall of Fame, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Rolling Stone magazine, and RIAA Songs of the Century. "Soul Man" was featured as the soundtrack and title for a 1986 film and also a 1997-1998 television series, and Soul Men was a 2008 feature film.

Nicknamed "Double Dynamite", "The Sultans of Sweat", and "The Dynamic Duo" for their gritty, gospel-infused performances, Sam & Dave were one of the greatest live acts of the 1960s. They were an influence on many future musicians, including Bruce Springsteen, Al Green, Tom Petty, Phil Collins, Michael Jackson, Elvis Costello, Teddy Pendergrass, Billy Joel and Steve Winwood. The Blues Brothers, who helped create a resurgence of popularity for soul, R&B, and blues in the 1980s, were influenced by Sam & Dave - their biggest hit was a cover of "Soul Man", and their act and stage show had many similarities to the duo.

Wishbone Ash is good, but not a favorite of mine. I've voted against EW&F and SDG too. I like some of Blackfoot's music, but I could possibly vote against them as well. Am I overwhelmed by any of the artists' influence on other artists? No, except for Sam & Dave (and EW&F to a lesser degree). Of course, Steve Winwood of SDG has already been inducted into the HoF.

>>JBug, if you like Seal, check out TTD, he's got a great voice as well and is similar in style<<

venus,
I bought his debut album shortly after it came out. There are three or four songs on it that I really like, incl. the brilliant Wishing Well. What happened to this guy who seemed to have it all?

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I've been a little distracted. My sister has been in and out of the hospital this past week.

He's still around, making music. Changed his name to Sananda Matrieya or some such thing. I saw him on the Tonight Show couple years ago. Yeah, I was very disappointed that he didn't do a great follow-up to 'Introducing the Hardline...' myself, I still enjoy listening to his debut album from time to time. Really thought he'd make it big time like Seal did, he certainly had the vocals and songwriting skills for it.

That's ok, my stepfather's in the hospital at the moment as well so I've been worried about that. How's your sister doing?

Thanks for throwing George Michael on the list. It was a great list and I was abstaining as there there was nobody I could vote against in good conscience--fixed!

'nother great vocalist there with GM. He's the only guy I've ever heard sing a Queen song other than Freddie himself that I thought did justice to it. 'Faith' is a classic album (never cared for Wham though, just George's solo stuff).

Thanks JBug and and SA for the well wishes. I wish JBug's sis good luck as well. =o)
