I' m a Soul Man

Today in rock history, Sam Moore was born in Miami, Florida, 1935. He is best known for his work as the Sam of the soul music duo Sam and Dave, where he was the higher tenor voice. Sam worked with Dave Prater, who died in 1988, from 1961 to 1970, recording a number of top 10 soul hits for Atlantic and Stax records; then went on to a solo career. His latest recording, released in 2006, is "Overnight Sensational," where he is paired with such artists as Sting, Bruce Springsteen, Mariah Carey, and Jon Bon Jovi. There's a nice interview with Sam that aired this past Sunday on local radio station 89.3 The Current, and you can check it out at http://americanroutes.publicradio.org/. Check out Sam and Dave doing one of my favorites, "Soul Man." Thanks to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Moore and http://rockhall.com/story-of-rock/today-in-rock/ for the info, and keep on rockin'!
