Best Of 70s Soul: 1971

Best Of 70s Soul: 1971

Playing tracks by

Marvin Gaye, Barbara Lynn, Honey Cone, The New Birth, Joe Simon and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global oldies chart, 2nd in the global funk chart, 2nd in the global funk - soul - jazz chart, 3rd in the global soul chart and 6th in the global r&b chart.

In the beginning of the 1970s soul music became influenced by other genres like country (Candi Staton), rock (Sly & the Family Stone) and folk (Bill Withers). The typical Motown beat disappeared in favour of more sophisticated sounds, like Memphis soul (Al Green) and the sound of Philadelphia (The Three Degrees). One of the first songs that came out on the Philadelphia International label was ‘You’re the reason why’ by The Ebony’s. Philly soul, however, was not fully evolved yet and still on the drawing board in 1971.
