The well behaved topsoil for me was earthgrow from home depot. However, a friend of mine in NM tried it and it turned into a nasty mess (too much organics in it). So I don't think you can count on the same brand being the same soil in different areas of the country. The topsoil that took a long time to settle down for me was the cheapest topsoil from lowes. a search of the ENatural forum on APC should turn up some other soils people have used. you want soil with low organic content and no extra ferts or vermiculite added.
