Backtracking is a unique archive show for Roundhouse Radio from Nick Taylor and Grace Huber, rediscovering the roots of great music from the past and present.
This week: In Defense of Sade, the reclusive singer (and band) whose brand of soul/R&B has found much love in the US but, as years go on less and less attention here in the UK. This episode of Backtracking attempts to work out why this is, playing some lovely music along the way. Starting with tracks from Sade's most recent studio album Soldier of Love, we play through the likes of Aretha, Al Green and Sly for influences, while the contemporaries features a couple of brilliant American singers who have nothing but love for Sade. There's also a bit of trip-hop and a special new UK artist in the form of Rox.
