Retro soul? People keep calling them that. Lance Davis over at The Adios Lounge insists there's no such thing.

But it did get me thinking about all things retro, and their enduring appeal. So here's a montage of retro things I enjoy, along with two tracks from The Shakes' appearance on NPR's World Cafe, which you can download for yourself (for free) by following this link.

along with the other bits of Retro lusciousness I love and miss.
