Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Sam Moore

Time for some soul…man! Today’s podcast features Sam Moore, one half of the popular 1960s recording team, Sam and Dave. Their recording of “Soul Man” was named as one of the 500 greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. It was revived in 1979 by the Blues Brothers. Other hits by the duo included “I Thank You” and “Hold On I’m Comin’.” They had 10 straight R&B hits and most of their songs were written by Isaac Hayes and David Porter. Sam overcame a long time battle with drug addiction and later became an anti-drug advocate. Sam and Dave were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1992. Sam tells the story of how they got together, where their hits came from, and a revelation about his partner Dave Prater.
