NOW Decades of Soul transports you through the years of one of the most beloved musical genres. These four discs showcase the rich history of soul music, featuring the best each decade has to offer as soulful sounds continue to change over time.

Starting with the 60s, featuring era-defining classics including Aretha Franklin’s Respect, Ben E. King’s Stand By Me, Percy Sledge’s When A Man Loves A Woman as well as the legendary James Brown hit - It's A Man's Man's Man's World, and the stunning lineup of Motown’s A-list superstars.

Moving into the 70s we saw a wave of these Motown legends creating further iconic hits including Diana Ross’ Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and Commodores’ Easy, along with distinctive hits of the decade such as Bill Withers’ Lovely Day and The Crusaders’ Street Life.

The 80s proved to be a great decade for soul music – with sounds embracing elements of funk and synth-pop. Chaka Khan led the way with her 1984 top 10 classic - Ain’t Nobody. Other timeless tracks of the decade include Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing, Luther Vandross’ Never Too Much, Jocelyn Brown’s Somebody Else’s Guy and many more!

Finally the 90s saw a blend of sub-genres from soulful ballads and contemporary hits that pushed the genre into the golden age of R&B! From Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing and Boyz II Men’s I’ll Make Love To You to Brandy & Monica’s the Boy Is Mine and Sade’s No Ordinary Love.
