    Man, I come to this forum looking for some excitement and there's nobody here. So this is my R&B roll call.

    Who else here loves R&B music?

      Love blues and r&b.  I've been around for a lot of years, and have a pretty good collection of music of all sorts.

      Here's a name from the past in the r&b field:  Clyde McPhatter.  Do you remember him?  Three of his biggest hits were:  Lover Please,   A lovers question and  A shot of rhythm and blues.

      Pop with some of your favorites.

      Love my classic R & B and old school soul too. I do think of the two as separate genres--both spring from the blues but R & B is a bit more urban and urbane; soul, more downhome and rural. One of my favorite artists, Solomon Burke, weds both traditions seamlessly  in his art, and is still putting out great music today.

    OOOO me, I am a R&B fan.. Too bad that just don't make "good" R&B music anymore... Everything has to have a club beat or something with the word "eh" in it.. It's terrible but the "old r&b" music is the best.. This makes me think of some singers..

    Keith Sweat
    Toni Braxton
    Whitney Houston
    Old Destiny Child

    Plus many more...

      I'm loving it! You sound just like me looking at your list . I love the 90s so much, this new stuff is packed with AutoTune and it's just disgusting.

      SomewayOuttaHere,  If you like blues,   try Delbert McClinton, Keb Mo,
      Johnny Winter,  Roy Buchanan.

      Back in the 50's and 60's, Jimmy Smith had an album called "Home cookin", which I liked.   

      Bill Doggett also had an album with "Honky Tonk", parts one and two on it.
      Worth listening to.

      I really like Ry Cooders version of "Crossroads".

      Jackie Wilson's "Lonely teardrops" is a classic

      Sam Cook's  "You send me"  is great.

      Some more:

      The drifters,  Solomon Burke,  Lou Rawls,  Wilson Pickett. Joss stone, The Crests, etc..

      Solomon Burke did some of the songs in the movie "Dirty Dancing", like  "Cry to me".

      There was a movie out a while back, titled the commitments.  In that movie they revived songs like "Mustang Sally",  Did a decent job on it.  I bought the cd.

        Man pretty much anything by Sam Cooke is amazing. I got his greatest hits album... he could come out in any era and still be the best singer around.

    When reading the cd info on my media library, I sometimes feel that some artists are pigeon holed into just one genre, when they have music that would span many genre's.  A classic example is Joe Cocker. On all of my Joe Cocker cds, his music is listed as rock.  He definitely is blues and r&b a good share of the time.

    Keb Mo should be both blues and r&b.

    Delbert McClinton should be blues, r&b and at times country. 
    What do you think?

      yes...you've named quite a few that are amazing artists...

      I googled Delbert....I've never listened to him before that I can recall...yes, he defiinitely has the blues influence...listened to 'everytime i roll the dice' and 'going back to louisiana' and then there's his country stuff.

      So many artists have been influenced by some of the old blues...lots of R&R musicians...that's why I love R&R so much too...

    Blues, soul and R&B (old and new) turn out to be my favourite genres of popular music. There are a lot of Hubbers who have similar taste, and have written great Hubs on the music they love.
    There's excitement enough!

    Mary J.Blige- to me she is the best.
    Whitney Houston
    Christina Aguilera- she does pop, but sometimes she sneaks into R¨N¨B

    I'm a huge fan of r & b music!!!!! From late 60's to today's r & b, I love it all. I have a large music collection that includes music from Sam Cooke to Musiq Soulchild. I also love to listen to gospel music as well; from traditional gospel artists like Inez Andrews to contemporary gospel artists like Fred Hammond and Kirk Franklin. I also have a few blues included in my collection from ZZ Hill to Bobby "Blue" Bland. I guess you can say that I'm a big time music junkie!!
