I just love listening to people who can sing.

Take a cue from the Dusty Springfield post I'm partial to some Petula Clark's classics. She had a great voice which made some great songs into great  pop classics. This one's really evocative

On a similar 60s inner urban vibe check out the lead and harmony vocals on this gem. As with Downtown there's something about the production on these tunes which makes them sound superior to most songs.

speaking of tone, I’ve always loved Dusty springfields voice, so cool & unique in a soul setting

 

Spent ages learning the bass to that, then the group changed a bit and decided not to do it! :(

It’s a good line. Like it how he lets loose on the last chorus

A more laid-back voice for this song ...

There hasn't been too many props for the amazing Whitney Houston, who provided some of the most stellar (and best known) vocal performances of all time. 

This is a tribute to her performed (I believe, on the day that she died) by another of the great vocalists . Two amazing talents with tragic ends.

Whitney Houston when there were no electronics to control her voice. She lets her gospel roots shine on this performance.

Not only does he sing it, but he co-wrote with Ian Kewley the keyboard player (who passed away about a week ago, I understand)

I do love people who can sing, but it's not everything. I'll explain.

About 20% of the music I love features someone who would be considered as being able to sing well.

About 40% features someone who would be considered as not being able to sing, but I think is a great singer.... Bob Dylan, The Fall, Sex Pistols etc.

About 40% I love but the singer is neither here nor there.. they deliver the song OK, but it's the overall package I love. A well known example of this (but not from my love list) is New Order. Ask a hardcore New Order fan what they love about NO and they won't say "Barney's Voice"

But in the spirit of the thread here is a fantastic vocal performance:

Some Russians. This deserves quality audio to bring out all the voices and harmonies.

 

That’s singing from the heart

The thought entered my head that this is village therapy and the men are taking turns airing their grievances.

      Apparently when I was a boy I had a lovely singing voice, but adolescence combined with a love of shouty rock and punk music plus the fact that really don't like how my voice sounds when recorded (much like the Red Dalek) means I haven't really done much singing for the last 40 years.
      However I think I'm missing out a lot in my musical development by not being at least a competent singer, so I've decided to look at getting some lessons in order to improve the, pitching, range and tone of my singing. Is there anyone in Nottingham that Basschat members would recommend? I am really looking for a personal recommendation rather than a list of Google results.
      I'm not looking at becoming a fantastic lead vocalist, but some help in being able to provide a competent vocal performance that I would not be embarrassed about is what I am after.
      Thanks in advance!
