Elegance with Substance

Playing tracks by

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global disco chart, 3rd in the global funk - soul - jazz chart and 6th in the global soul chart.

Welcome back to another mix session with lots of Soul. This time I take a deep dip into the past - into a period where Soul and Funk were losing its rawness - but gained Elegance...
The whole black music scene seemed to go Disco... no worries... no superficial cheesy stuff here. You hear the influences, but these gems still got the soulful deepness (Substance). Production methods were getting more technically mature and well thought out. Strings and other types of instruments, synthesizers were added into more complex compositions... For some years, Philadelphia was the place to go for cutting edge productions...
To me, it´s the last period where R&B was loveable... So, enough said, I hope you love it, too! Feel free to drop a comment...

This upload contains tracks from Creative Source, Jean Carne, Rhythm Heritage, Linda Clifford, Roy Ayers, Johnny Hammond, East West Connection and many more...

Absolutely wonderful! You have so many of my favourites here - Don Blackman - ah, discovered at a time when I first fell in love :) The Love Unlimited LP you show here I just bought from the basement of an old record store - vinyl treasure. Thanks so much for sharing x
