Roots of Soul & Motown


Notes

The desperate void left by the second world war was filled by a second world renaissance. It was in this celebration of life that gospel music was married to the blues and soon both rock & roll and soul music were born. Siblings of the same generation, soul took after the teachings of gospel while rock & roll followed in the muddy footsteps of the blues.

Here are 24 songs from about 1950-1955, as examples of early soul music in the United States.
