Raphael Saadiq, 'Stone Rollin'


Raphael Saadiq, 'Stone Rollin'
44/50

This retro-soul master segues from 1960s Motown to Fifties R&B to Seventies psychedelic soul. But Saadiq isn't just a human highlight reel. He's a riveting singer and a clever songwriter; check "Radio," about a girl named Radio who needs him bad but can't pin him down.
