Best of 70s Soul: A Hot Melting Pot

The Get Down
Have you watched The Get Down on Netflix yet? It's basically a story about girls loving disco and guys loving hip hop... Very well done, though!

“Set in New York in 1977, this music-driven drama series chronicles the rise of hip-hop and the last days of disco -– told through the lives, music, art and dance of the South Bronx kids who would change the world forever.”

Some of the songs that I selected are from the second part of the series, available on Netflix now. The soundtrack gave me the inspiration for this part of ‘Best Of 70s Soul’. Enjoy!
