2000s mixburst #12: soul

whoa yeah. i had a bit of a hard time deciding what "soul" means here – initially was gonna be more strictly just the retro-folks that mostly make up the middle chunk, but i ended up expanding the parameters a bit...not too broad though: i think all this stuff is pretty soul-y. better decade for soul than rock then? definitely the best soul decade of the last three, no question (and the worst for rock...yeah.) i like that this is exactly evenly split (and largely down the middle) between the soul sistas and the soul brothas.

ran especially long because i had to give fuller-than-standard airings to a bunch of these (and, there are a bunch of them...)
