Sweet Soul Music" is a soul song, first released by Arthur Conley in 1967. Written by Conley and Otis Redding, it is based on the Sam Cooke song "Yeah Man" from his posthumous album Shake; the opening riff is a quote from Elmer Bernstein's score for the 1960 movie The Magnificent Seven. In the US, "Sweet Soul Music" reached the number two spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (behind "The Happening" by The Supremes), and number two on the Billboard R&B chart.

Hence, the following year’s aptly titled More Sweet Soul-a pastiche of Memphis and Muscle Shoals sessions produced by legend Tom Dowd-was unfairly regarded as a Conley B effort. Some of that had to do with context; this was 1969, and soul and R&B were quickly evolving.
Sweet Soul Music, Conley’s debut, was released as a vehicle for the wildly successful single of the same name. The other 9 tracks are earlier material from Conley that failed to chart in its time, but should be regarded as essential deep soul today – sung by a voice that could clearly and honestly express the darkest emotions on one take, and whoop out the dance anthems on the next. Let Nothing Separate Us and Take Me (Just As I Am) are two fantastic highlights. Half the songs on Sweet Soul Music were written or co-written by Otis Redding, who also produced the entire album (heck, Redding.
