This is a good friend of mine. I'm not too well versed in soul music, but I think he's really good.

Hellz, yeah he is really good!

Been listening to a lot of soul recently. Pretty well versed, but I'm sure there's important albums that I'm missing.
What're some essential albums in the genre that I might not have?

Not sure what you have/haven't heard, but some soul albums I like that don't get talked about as much.

Labelle - Nightbirds
Percy Mayfield - Blues Laureate: The RCA Year (this is a comp and kinda bluesy, but he wrote stuff for Ray Charles, so it's good stuff)
Honey Cone - Sweet Replies
James Carr – You Got My Mind Messed Up
Clarence Carter – This Is Clarence Carter
Esther Phillips – From A Whisper To A Scream

If you want to hear some obscure stuff it's worth picking up a Northern Soul compilation. Lots of great, not particularly well known artists end up on those comps.

As well as those essentials you need a bit of Aretha and Stevie in your life. So check out I've Never Loved A man The Way I Love You and Innervisions also.

Hot Buttered Soul by Isaac Hayes is a great, but slightly daunting album. It's 45 minutes long, but there's only 4 tracks, so they do kind of meander a bit, but if you can persist with it, it's brilliant.

Here's the album closer in all it's glory:
