Imported American soul was big news in the UK in the 1970s. Before the Brits developed their own brand of soul, the Americans were over here showing us how it was done and being appreciated by all and sundry.

The series continues with classic performances from the kings and queens of soul, including Aretha Franklin, Billy Preston, the Tams, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, the Stylistics, Gil Scott-Heron and the Jacksons.
