yesh, it is....props to Josh and the ones who helped him out... (pats himself gently on the back)

only qualm i have had for a while is What's going on being too low, as i have stated that many singers constantly refer to that as a fave and an influence , up there in the top 10 i believe this deserves, more than the Elvis album......

If you can find some examples of that citing beast id be all the more able to back you, as its a favourite over-all album but as a vocal its not too strong.

GREAT list!!!

ive read the claim from Myles kennedy , Jimmy Gnecco and heard it being mentioned by Donny hathaway among others....it has a truckload of influence as an album of course, and Gaye has always been quite high on the influence factor, so i could assume this to bee a huge album on influence vocally too, something like Elvis album or Arethas......
