Lady - Money

First prize in the classic soul revival goes to Lady for Money. Lyrically it's a sister to The Voices Of East Harlem's Cashing In. Musically, it's got that early 70s Stax strut and the Scandinavian snap of modern gems (Hey Girl! by Jo Stance or any of those astonishing Myron & E with the Soul Investigators 45s).

If Lady's self-titled album on Truth and Soul released in March is as good as this, then everyone else is going to have to fight for second place when 2013's best records are compiled.
