Our Tribute to Philadelphia Soul

PhiladelphiaIf Detroit and Motown brought soul music to the forefront in the 1960s, Philadelphia picked up the mantle in the 1970s, bringing its own brand of gorgeous, orchestral soul music and ultra hot dance music. Literally dozens of terrific groups and fantasic solo singers arose from the seminal work of Gamble & Huff, Thom Bell and others.
