BLACK MUSIC MONTH: MOVE ON UP

Presenting another batch of playlists to accompany our R&B-themed Black Music Month special issue. You can check out the first four here.

Playlist #5 showcases the genius of Sly Stone, George Clinton, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield, among other greats.

Part 6 is a '70s soul extravaganza featuring EWF, Barry White, The Isley Brothers, Kool & the Gang, The O'Jays, Harold Melvin, Billy Paul and other purveyors of joy and heartbreak.

The stunning solo career of Michael Jackson, the silky club jams of Diana Ross and the rise of disco with Chic and Donna Summer: If playlist #7 doesn't move your butt, check your pulse.

We're quiet-storming in Part 8 with Smokey, Luther, Anita, Lionel, Teddy and kindred staples of the romantic airwaves.

There's more where these came from; stay tuned.
