Some will say you can't really re-invent the wheel. In Soul Music, there's been a wall between the end of the 1960's and modern R&B decidedly. As Funk gave way to Disco during the 1970, it laid out the carpet for Hip Hop and New Jack Swing to come along in the 1980's and 1990's. All of these creative forces in Black built music in the United States left soul music a beloved relic of the past.
the songs and artists here have a variety of tactics in accessing something sweet and soulful, not necessarily putting tambourine to palm at all times, we find that the art that we associate with Sam and Marvin, Etta and Aretha has never exactly gone anywhere. It's a proud legacy that continues to get breaths of fresh air day after day, year after year.
Clocking in at just over an hour, we've got plenty of originals and just a smattering of covers that blur the boundaries of time from some of today's best voices.
