What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.
If you are, know or have any information about the artists, labels or musicians etc. that are mentioned in these pages, please share it with us by sending an email to: info@soultreats.se

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.

The Tams- Shelter - ABC

60s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, April 13, 2010 21:32:28

The Tams only reached moderate success on the charts, but have been hugely popular on the "Beach" scene in the U.S. which, much like the northern soul scene in the U.K., thrives on the forgotten gems of yester-year. Made up by brothers Charles and Joseph Pope together with Horace Key, Robert Lee Smith and Albert Cottle (who replaced original member Floyd Ashton in ´65), the group had a string of nearly there but not quite (at least not chart-wise) records in the early and mid-sixties, "Be Young Be Foolish Be Happy", "Untie Me" "What Kind Of Fool (Do You Think I Am) and "Hey Girl Don´t Bother Me" to name but a few. This track was released in 1966 and catches Joseph Pope´s powerful lead singing perfectly. Enjoy!

"Shelter"
