december 2016 mix

[sadly lacking spotify version]

I can’t think of any better way to send of this altogether shitty year than with a soulful obituary.

My love for soul music of the 1960s, particularly the (mostly) southern ballads that get called “Deep Soul,” is often peppered into my mixes, but it’s been a while since I did an outright soul mix. This one is essentially my ‘top 25’ soul cuts of all time. I mean, there are songs I love a lot that aren’t on here, but I’ve always been drawn to the drama, emotion, and those sometimes hard-hitting drums of ballads.

When the hurt is gone, it doesn’t sound so bad.

Oh, and that’s Little Richard on the cover.
