Most of us can instantly recognise the sound of classic Sixties soul but classic soul has a lineage that extends up to the present day. So, this playlist has been compiled to draw on the sound of Classic Soul regardless of when it was recorded. My criteria? Quite simple. If the track is soulful and stands up against the other tracks on the list then it's in. If, on the other hand, the track has been flogged to death in too many tired compilations or is, quite simply, a rubbish recording (no matter how soulful) then it's out. Always a work in progress!
