Artist Biography

One of the stalwart acts of the Salsoul music label in the 70s, Double Exposure was a fixture in the clubs with a bevy of well performed, melodic tunes that bore the classic Philly Soul sound and hot dance beats. Originally formed in the mid-60s as United Image, Leonard Davis, Chuck Whittington, Jimmy Williams and Joe Harris originally cut some forgottentracks for the legendary Stax label before changing their name to Double Exposure and working with Philly's top musicians, such as Bobbi Eli, Baker/Harris/Young, Larry Goldon and Bunny Sigler, on the Salsoul label. They issued a trio of albums in the late 70s that didn't burn up the pop or R&B charts, but provided two number one Disco hits ("Everyman" and "Ten Percent") and another top 5 charter ("My Love Is Free").

The group split in the 80s, and Williams joined the Trammps for several years. However, the original four Double Exposure members reunited in 2010 and began performing shows again. In 2012 the group recorded a new single, "Lady."
