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!

The Brothers Johnson – Get The Funk Out Ma Face (1976)
