From DJ Chris Lawyer:

2019 was another great year for Funk & Soul releases with some new discoveries (Neal Francis, Alexis Evans), big steps forward (Hannah Williams, Durand Jones), and exemplary work from the usual suspects (Lee Fields, Nick Waterhouse, The New Mastersounds).  The real treasure is the unearthed recordings from golden era Marvin Gaye, in peak artistic form, on the album You're The Man.  So much to be grateful for...
