Philly Sound
(Epic Z3K-64647 US-97 225:-)

The vintage music recorded at Philadelphia International Records, especially during owner/producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's first decade, glue the classic soul of Memphis and Motown with the disco and hip-hop sounds to follow.

"The Philly Sound," three volumes including #1 hits by Billy Paul, the O'Jays, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes and others, celebrates gritty vocals, lush, deep-grooved orchestration, and socially proactive lyrics for what became classic R&B's final bow.
Step by Step - I always wanted to be in the Band!
(Victor VICP-64287 Jap-08 225:-)

Quite possibly the greatest soul band ever to come out of Milwaukee – and a tight little ensemble who've got a really great sound! The overall feel of their work is a bit hard to peg – as the group are equally great at mellow midtempo group numbers as they are at tighter, clubbier tunes that snap with a bit more of a horn-heavy sound – and throughout the record there's a really playful feel that shows that whatever the sound, whatever the setting, these guys just had a heck of a great time working with each other! That quality can be heard especially well on the title track "I Always Wanted To Be In The Band" – a great little number that's almost an updating of the TSU Tornadoes sound for the 70s – but the whole set's great, and other tracks move into some great super-dope production that we really love! Titles include "I Am A Lonely Man", "People", "Cool Days Are Out Of Style", "I Ain't Never Gonna Let You Go", and "Cash Money".
