Joe Sperry’s Deep Soul List

On November 12 Joe Sperry published his deep soul list on the Southern Soul Forum
As he wrote: I finally had to set myself a time limit for myself. Yes, I know there’s no Otis, no Percy Sledge, etc., but here is my list of November 17 at 9:45 a.m. Eastern Time. What I also noticed was how much John Ridley has influenced my taste-who better? (John Ridley runs the  Sir Shambling’s Deep Soul Heaven website).
My friend Lambert Lepoutre created a podcast around the list.
