Best Of 70s Soul: The Sound Of Philadelphia

Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global funk chart, 3rd in the global funk - soul - jazz chart, 4th in the global soul chart and 5th in the global disco chart.

New York may have been ground zero during the disco generation, but as most folks know, lots of the best sounds came from Philadelphia. In fact, the first disco records were made there and they kept on coming even in the years after the flames had died down at Studio 54. When the Philly sound eventually disappeared, Marshall Jefferson ('Move your body') and others built their Chicago house sound on the foundations of Philly soul. The Three Degrees (picture) released ‘Strategy: Our Tribute to Philadelphia’ earlier this year. The tracks by Tapestry and Ben E. King are from a new compilation album called ‘The Spirit of Philadelphia 4’. Complete tracklist is on my blog: And it would be nice if you joined me on Facebook:
