I think he's saying the mix of 60's R&B with 70's Soul is the best fusion of music ever.

At least I hope he said that cos I'd agree, with the excepton of post punk, but I'd never dare compare the two.

That CD is worth the money just for Gil Scott Heron's 'The Bottle' and you can't go wrong with Curtis Mayfield.

60's Geno Washington, Billy Butler, Edwin Starr, JJ Barnes, Isley Brothers, Jackie Wilson, Major Lance.
Far too many to mention.

Special mention for a very under-rated female soul singer...Brenda Holloway. Has the voice of an angel.
