Top 30* Southern Soul, Rhythm & Blues Albums

* The chart has changed to a Top 30 rather than a Top 40 as the industry's custom has become such that less full length albums are being released. Meanwhile more single song tracks are being released without an accompanying full album so a Top 30 is more indicative of the albums market.

Deep Soul + Soul/Blues + Downhome Blues + Urban Blues
