    'NOW Decades of Soul' transports you through the years of one of the most beloved musical genres. These four discs showcase the rich history of soul music, featuring the best each decade has to offer as soulful sounds continue to change over time. Starting with the '60s with era difining classics, moving in to the '70s with a wave of these Motown legends creating further iconic hits. The '80s proved to be a great decade for soul music - with sounds embracing elements of funk and synth-pop, and finally the '90s saw a blend of sub-genres from soulful ballads and contemporary hits that pushed the genre into the golden age of R&B. 'NOW Decades of Soul' celebrates the genre that has and continues to stand the test of time.
