For the past few weeks I have been gathering a collection of music together to DJ for a friends wedding which led me into Disco and Soul music because they both manage to bring almost any age group to the dance floor. One of the first tracks I went to and one of my favorite soul tracks was Back Stabbers by The O’Jays and I decided to highlight it here in my track of the week.
Soul music has some of the greatest intros in musical history and Back stabbers manages to keep the trend with strongly defined and beautifully recorded instrumentation that continues underneath the vocals. Its a sound that may be iconic of the 70s but it still holds a quality that is repeated and emulated to this day and still remains popular. An indication that the sound of Soul itself is more than just nostalgia but a style that is naturally attractive to most listeners.
