Just grabbed some dericious Supremes. Lovin the oohs and harmonies and whatnots. I want to fill out my collection of this type of music more, though, since I've always liked it but never acted on those feelings. Any recommendations?

In the last year I've started listening to this kind of music a lot more.

I really like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, and you've already found the Supremes who are one of my favorite motown groups.

You should also try to get some old James Brown albums. Before he more or less invented funk he was a really good soul singer.

Frank Zappa's first album is basically all doowop, and very good.

I also like the weird sub-genre of garage rock because it's essentially a synthesis between punk music and R&B, before punk music existed. It sounds cool to me, anyway.
(the guitar's tone on this song is fucking awesome)
