Seventies Soul - My Birthday Playlist

I know that it's a little early for (US) Thanksgiving, but today is my birthday and I'm feeling very thankful for your support. Because the fact is, no matter how cool I think my jewelry is or how much fun I have making it, I couldn't keep this business going without your support. Your feedback (both positive and negative), your comments and the photos of you wearing your pieces is what keeps me inspired, creating and getting better and better. And so, because I love you all, I did something deeply uncomfortable (to me) and recorded a quick video to thank you in person (as "in-person" as any of us get in these corona days, anyway.)



Anyway, on to the November playlist. Since I was born in the Seventies (though I don't really remember them), this month's playlist is titled Seventies Soul and includes a bunch of my favorite - yep, you guessed it -  Seventies soul music.  Now, soul music is generally defined as an African-American invented genre than incorporates aspects of R&B, gospel and jazz. The first track might surprise you because it's a pretty deep cut from a singer known more for gospel than soul, but I had to include it because it's one of my all-time favorite songs ever. There are also classics like "Superfly" from Curtis Mayfield, and tracks from the likes of Bobby Womack, the Isley Brothers and a glorious live version of Bill Wither's singing "Use Me." Maybe it's because I was born in that era, but these songs absolutely sooth my soul. I hope you enjoy this playlist as much as I enjoyed making it.
