    Whoever you think they are, that's the best to you. There's no such thing as the best. By what criteria do you judge who is the best at anything?

    There are more great voices to choose from in that decade than I have time to list.  In my opinion, the worst singer from the seventies era is head and shoulders above any vocalist of present day.  There was no “AutoTune” or other computer assistance.

    Greatest of the Great?

    Female: Karen Carpenter

    Male: Ray Charles

    The ones I usually highlight are some that don’t get nearly enough attention:

    Female: Gladys Knight (Midnight Train to Georgia)

    Male: Bobby “Blue” Bland (enjoy this legend in the link)
