Is there a Soul Music Revival happening World Wide? I think so!!

Steve Cropper has just launched his Official MySpace page this week to an overwhelming response from his fans and lovers of SOUL music!
Steve Cropper Official MySpace Page

Cropper is generally regarded as the most well known and influential Soul guitarist and because of his ability to adapt to many different styles, in 1996, he was named the greatest living guitar player (second all-time behind Jimi Hendrix) by Britain's Mojo Magazine. When asked what he thought of Cropper, the guitarist at number four, The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards, said "Perfect, man".

I totally adore Steve Cropper for giving back to SOUL MUSIC and for embracing and promoting young SOUL artists like Guy Sebastian who is a freak Soul Man!!

Allmusic Review of THE MEMPHIS ALBUM

Highly recommended: Review of the Memphis Album on Allmusic

'The Memphis Album' is an excellent introduction to Memphis soul for neophytes, and a good introduction to Guy Sebastian for those unfamiliar with his talent or intellectually averse towards any 'Idol' releases. For diehard soul collectors, the backing tracks alone by the MGs and Memphis horns should be enough incentive to pick up the CD; Guy Sebastian's sheer talent will be a nice revelation. Recommended.

You can read the full review on allmusic and listen to the Memphis Album tracks listed.
