I'd say there's plenty of classic original soul songs, especially from the late 60's and early 70's. Sure, early Motown and Atlantic often employed songwriters/songwriting teams but that's not what we're talking about. The majority of the songs by folks like James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone were at least partly written by the artists.
