Happy Valentine's Day from the City of Brotherly Love! I've got some gifts for you!
About 10 minutes into creating my "Best of Philly Disco" mix in 2009, I immediately realized that at least one, if not two sequels were necessary. In trying to represent so many facets of this prolific time in Philly's music history (and make a tasteful mix), I realized that one mix couldn't cover it all.
Here again are the criteria I used to select the tunes:
1. Made by a Philly-born/bred artistThis volume is dedicated to the memory of the great Teddy Pendergrass, who passed away in 2010.
2. Made by an artist on a Philly record label
3. Written/Arranged/Composed someone strongly associated with the Philly sound
4. Played by a Philly label’s house band
As an added bonus (and this week's "Year of the Edit" contribution), you can download my edit of The Spinners - I'll Be Around which appears on the mix!
The tracklist appears in the comments section of the post.
