MFSB, officially standing for "Mother Father Sister Brother", was a pool of more than thirty studio musicians based at Philadelphia’s Sigma Sound Studios. It was the 1972 release of their first album, MFSB, that put them on the map. This marked the beginning of a string of instrumental hits that brought major attention to a large orchestra who laid the foundation for the Sound of Philadelphia.

100 Greatest Soul Albums. Criteria: Soul music started in the early 1960s and was around into the 1970s and later, although by the mid-1970s it had pretty much been replaced by funk and disco. Albums that are mainly funk or disco, rather than soul, were not considered for this list. These albums were chosen and ranked based on their initial and lasting popularity, influence, impact, and overall stature in soul music circles. Last Updated: 2016-12-17.
Soul music combines traditional American gospel and rhythm & blues (R&B) style, collecting catchy hooks, heavy improvisation and a tense vocal sound. The music has become synonymous around the world with "funk" as well as deep emotional expression. Top soul artists include Ray Charles, James Brown (known as the "Godfather of Soul"), Sam Cooke, Solomon Burke, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. Originally published by Mojo Magazine, this list contains the Top 100 Best Soul Albums ever released. For ease of browsing, the albums are listed chronologically by release date.
