Not to get too side-tracked but I have a great 6-CD set of soul music by Rhino that's now out of print. It's called "Can You Dig It? The '70s Soul Experience." It's pretty much chronological and you can hear the gospel, blues and Latin rhythms influencing the songs. But on the last couple of discs it starts to go disco and that's where it got derailed. The music got slicker and the steady beat omnipresent, no more changes. And it starts to happen around 1974.
The set also comes with "The Jive Glossary" so you can figure out what's being said.
