The late 1960s and early 1970s was an interesting time time to be growing up in the US. Social unrest was the order of the day including the civil rights and anti-war movements. Rock music led the way in responding to what was happening in the country but soul music was not far behind. Mavin Gaye was in the process of recording his groundbreaking album What’s Going On and Norman Whitfield had the mighty Temptations moving in the direction of a more socially conscious sound that would eventually be called Psychedelic Soul. I loved this new sound and this post features my favorite psychedelic soul songs. Enjoy……..
The Temptations – Ball of Confusion
Edwin Starr – War
Undisputed Truth – Smiling Faces
The Supremes – Stoned Love
