Classic Interviews & Features
Carol Douglas September 1976 Interview
"Doctor's Orders" created a big demand for Carol in Europe and she still has a heavy working schedule. The lady took time out to bring B&S up-to-date with her activities… IT'S BEEN a little while since we last heard from the lovely lady w...

Eugene Record February 1972 Interview
IT WAS in February 1970 that my eyes were first really opened to the Chi-Lites. Until then. I had only been able to hear a couple of singles and, whilst I recall liking them, that is a situation that frequently occurs. It was back then that Decca ...

People's Choice January 1972 Interview
PEOPLE'S Choice "I Likes To Do It" has been one of the most consistent selling Mojo singles to date — it has never achieved the accolade it perhaps deserves because it seems to be spreading slowly across the country and still holds down a place in th...

People's Choice February 1976 Interview
WITH "Do It Anyway You Wanna" ending up 1975 as the year's best selling R&B single — selling close on two million copies around the world and still charted in several parts of the world — Philadelphia's People's Choice confirmed that their name is an...

Jimmy Ruffin July 1970 Interview
DURING THE LAST 5 years, Jimmy Ruffin has established himself as one of the most consistent artists under the Tamla Motown banner. In fact, he is currently far more popular and successful in Britain than in his homeland. But, it seems, all of that is...

Jimmy Ruffin November 1971 Interview
IT'S quite a few months now since Jimmy Ruffin was last in the British charts following a run of about one year when his name appeared religiously each week. "I've been trying to get away from the one-nighter discotheque tours and into cabaret," expl...

Jimmy Ruffin September 1974 Interview
APOLOGIES, folks, for the pretty corny title for this feature but it's about the only way we could find of incorporating two of the main reasons why the name Jimmy Ruffin is one of the biggest on the soul (or, for that matter general music) scene rig...

Norma Jean Wright November 1978 Interview
One of the brightest new stars on the horizon is a young lady whose voice has already been heard across the world. As lead singer with Chic, Norma Jean has tasted the fruits of success and now with a solo album of her own, she's ready to gain even...

Jackie Wilson June 1975 Interview
THERE is a handful of soul artists who simply have such a long and interesting story to tell that it becomes virtually impossible to remember all of the questions and details and intricacies that you want to question them on. And so any interview bec...

Barbara Lynn September 1972 Interview
BARBARA LYNN is probably best known for her composition of "You'll Lose A Good Thing", which she recorded herself in 1962 and gained a Gold Disc for her efforts. The song has since gone on to become something of a standard in Soul circles and left Ba...

Clarence Carter August 1970 Interview
WHEN WE heard the good news of Clarence Carter's impending marriage to his protege, Candi Staton, we felt we had to get in touch with him and offer our congratulations on behalf of BLUES & SOUL and all our readers and when we finally tracked him down...

Clarence Carter November 1970 Interview
OWN UP, all those who didn't give Clarence Carter's "Patches" even an outside chance of making the U.K. charts; let alone actually make the Top 3. But, you're in good company, because even Clarence himself is amazed at his British success. "Frankl...

Faith Hope and Charity September 1975 Interview
The name "Faith, Hope & Charity" may well be familiar to avid soul fans who remember their big hit of a couple of years back — "So Much Love". With the demise of the company for whom they recorded that single and subsequent signing with Sussex Record...

Brook Benton April 1976 Interview
AFTER something like twenty years of continuous success in the States, Brook Benton looks like finally achieving the breakthrough that has eluded him during the era in this country. The strangest thing is that since signing with All Platinum Records,...

Brook Benton May 1971 Interview
ONE OF the most pleasing successes of 1970 was Brook Benton with what to me was probably the most soulful record of that year, "Rainy Night In Georgia". Brook's success was anything but an overnight one; he has been recording hits since the late 50's...
