Male Vocal Spectrum Playlist

Here's another fever dream of a playlist. A little Roy G Biv for the ears. A very subjective, likely imperfect, but fun nevertheless, male vocal spectrum playlist.

I was inspired driving around yesterday listening to a 1974 Elvis live recording (Event #8). Right at that point in "Amen" when Elvis says "Go get it, JD" and bass singer JD Sumner reaches right down to the Earth's core for a low note that rattled my windshield. This playlist should answer the question "How do we get to the vocal yang to Mister Sumner's yin?"
