2894111, I am not convinced Neo-Soul is required to evoke 70s soul music|

I am thinking the two main characteristics is that Neo-Soul was NOT contemporary hip-hop infused R&B (90s &00s) and it was backwards looking, retro.
That backwards looking retro sound could be classic sounds other than 70s soul.
I am thinking in particular that one root of the neo-soul movement is acid jazz and groups like the Brand New Heavies.
I haven't heard Soul II Soul's first album in a minute. Let me go back and give it a spin.
