    There are too many to name all of them but a couple of my favorites are Earth Wind and Fire and Teena Marie. There music is timeless and timely. Great question!

      Thanks! I was just listening to Old School R&B and I thought it would make a good question.

    I'm not sure what old school R & B is as I am not really very well-schooled in music.  But The Four Tops were may favorite group during the 60's.

    Marvin Gay. He has a fascinating BIO. And is soulful lyrics are terrific.  Did you know his father shot and killed him? Maybe you should write that up, my friend.

    Gladys Knight & The Pips. She could sing just about anything and make it soulful. The Pips harmony made for an even better sound. The only performer I ever saw live that sent goosebumps up and down my spine with the start of every song she sang. Old school R&B is the 50's and 60's for me. Today's R&B is miising the soul that was in every Otis Redding and James Brown song. My list of favourites is really quite long but thanks to the iPod I still listen to them today.

    I love the Isleys, Sly and the Family Stone, Ike and Tina, etc. But my favorite singer/entertainer is the Godfather Of Soul James Brown. I first saw him in 1968 and despite seeing some great acts in soul music, he was absolutely, hands down, the BEST!

      At the end of the "JB_LIVE AT BOSTON GARDENS" DVD, the show was almost over when teenagers started crowding the  stage. JB had the cops moved back and finally persuaded the kids to leave the stage as he performed his last song. This was his 3rd time coming on stage that night and as he talked to the kids, he was even BREATHING HARD!

      After  singing, screaming, and dancing his ass off for nearly 40-50 min in the last set ALONE!  Truly the hardest working man in show business, there will never be anyone else like him!  Bring on the JAMES BROWN BIOPIC!

      Oh!! I had her in my head the other day and I couldn't think of her name. One of my friends told me immediately and I was like "Anita Baker! I love her!"

    I like the oldies like Marvin Gaye, but I just ordered the best of BBD, and TLC....

    They don't make those jams like they used to.....  I don't even listen to the radio anymore!

      Neither do I.  When they do play old school artists, they only play their best known hits, not some stuff that was just as good or "B" sides.  James Brown had tons of hits but you only hear "SEX MACHINE", "COLD SWEAT", or "LIVING IN AMERICA".
