'80s Soul: Never Too Much

Lulu Le Vay, Sleazenation, May 2002

80s soul: Black men and silky suits and silkier voices. White Essex casuals. Weekends at windswept holiday resorts. Luther Vandross. While the rest of the 80s music pantheon is currently being plundered for all its fashionable and jerky synthetic worth, Sleaze takes a look back at the genre that today seemingly forgot.
