‘American Soul Connexion [Chapter 3]’: In 1961, Ray Charles was considered the soul singer par excellence. However, he had to share is crown with exceptional vocalists, from Doo-Wop groups recently converted to the delights of this art of elegant expressiveness. Jerry Butler and Curtis Mayfield (The Impressions), Derek Martin and Howard Guyton (The Top Notes), Ben E. King (The Drifters) or Otis Williams and his partners Elbridge Bryant, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams (The Temptations) were among his most faithful followers and contemporaries.
