Mark Randle's Contemporary Countdown 2012

Mark Randle's Contemporary Countdown 2012 cover

I create listings of my favourite cuts at each year end from a contemporary soul/dance/jazz perspective, and can't remember whether I've posted them here before, but here they are for 2012. I guess "All About The Soul" is the correct forum, but apologies if not.


There are 100 soul CD/MP3 cuts and 100 dance jazz 12"/MP3 cuts. I'll list them as normal, but will also attach JPG for anyone particularly interested, as the formatting can prove troublesome in list form.


Hope you enjoy checking them out!
