Soul Classics, Vol 1LUMPENPROLETARIAT—Oh, yes.  There’s nothing like sweet, sweet soul music and smooth R&B, especially from that extraordinary decade between the mid-’60s to the mid-’70s, with just enough fonkiness to liberate that lower chakra.  From LTD to Bobby Womack to Eddie Kendricks and Harold Melvin, DJ Amuur has put together one gorgeous soul music mix.  Well, it’s not exactly all straight ahead soul, but it is R&B with enough soul to merit DJ Amuur’s playlist title.  You need this in your life.

DJ Amuur puts together some well known tracks from some well known recording artists, such as “Spell” by Blue Magic and “A Letter To Myself” by The Chi-Lites, and some more obscure tracks from well known artists, such as “Love Gonna Pack Up” by The Persuaders, who are better known for their hit “Thin Line Between Love and Hate”.  And, then, there are also some more obscure artists, such as Clinton Harmon and Billy Harner, who has done back-up vocals for the late great Phyllis Hyman.  Check it out.
