Wow, what a great response! How are we going to shortlist this lot? You are meant to consider long term influence, sales etc., - but we'll see..

One thing with me is if I cant get something out of my head: I'm into the Stax House Sound at the minute (meaning Booker T and the MGs (Memphis Group)) and I listened to Carla Thomas recently singing B.A.B.Y. Catchy, or what..

Some familiar names so far (and some Imgonna have to look up). Stevie Wonder for example - 'Signed Sealed Delivered' what a great track that is.
