That's a lot of people!
I don't know Jay Black or David Gates.
Johnny Rivers, Bobby Vinton, Dion, Frankie, and Tommy I'd give 5's to. Bobby Vinton maybe a 6. Entertaining but not great singers.
Smokey Robinson, the man with the smooth voice I'd give a 10.
Petula Clark-6...all her songs sounded so similar.
Roberta Flack-8...I love her voice.
Tammy Wynette-at the risk of insulting someone I won't rate her but say too twangy for me.
Merle Haggard-6 because he had some fun songs.
Bobby Vee-I'd give him a ten. He has a nice voice plus I once kissed him!
Johnny Rivers 5:Decent singer.The only song I connected with was Summer Rain.
Jay Black:10.Next to Bill Medley:One of the strongest voices in pop.
Smokey Robinson:10.He was Motown
Bobby Vinton:4.Enough of the whining already.
Bobby Vee: 7:Underated as a performer
Petula Clark:5.Talented but not special
Dion:10.Street corner harmonies at their best
Roberta Flack:See Petula Clark
Frankie Avalon: 6.Nothing special
Tammy Wynette:5.Personal tastes.
Merle Haggard:9.In another era his folk writings would be compared to Woody Guthrie
Tommy Roe:1.What did the late Bill Lowery hear in this bubblegum artists music?

Black Who? Is he Jay and The Americans? If so, then 9
Robinson 6 A better businessman than a singer
Vinton 2 He appeals to the Polish people
Dion 8 He is a Christian singer now
Gates 9 but he is an arrogant jerk
Avalon 1 How many times can you sing Venus over and over
Wynette 1 I hate country
Roe 2 He is too bubble gummy

Rivers-10 The man has continued to record and still performs. He sounds even better with age.
Black- 5 Has a nice voice but doesn't impress me as much as other artists
Robinson-10 What can I say, undoubtedly one of those voices you recognize right off the bat. One smooth voice
Vinton- 2 Never was much of a fan of Vinton nor of:
Vee-2 These type of singers tried to copy one anothe so much that even their fans have gotten them mixed up
Clark- 8 Interesting voice enjoyable to listen to
Deon-5 He was ok, but never did much for me as a singer, though he was favored by many fans
Flack 10- Fabulous singer another artist you recognize quickly
Gates 10- I don't think I've ever heard anyone that comes close to this soft spoken singer.
Avalon 2- same as Vee and Vinton copycat sounds to me
Wynette 2- She had the hits, but she sang through her nose, which sort of irritated me listening to her.
Haggard-2 I'm not a fan of the old style country music. I don't feel he was all that exceptional in his singing. Just my opinion though
Roe- 2- To me, a sappy singer,nice voice, but nothing special

They all had some good music, but the only one who gets a 10, in my book, is Smokey. The only one who gets a 1 is Tommy Roe, bland, bland, bland. The rest are all in between. Although, I've got to admit, I can't really say about Merle and Tammy, country music not being my favorite genre.

The first three, I've never heard them sing.
8- love Blue Velvet
10- I love so many of his songs
4- don't like her voice
Haven't heard the other three
100+- I love Frankie Avalon. He's the perfect example of an American Idol. I'm probably one of the few 19 year olds who got kissed by him in this era. And I did!!!! I went to a concert of his and he signed my scrapbook and kissed me!!!
Haven't heard the other three.
