Product Description

Product Description

M.F.S.B. (Mother Father Sister Brother) was the house band for Philadelphia International Records and worked very closely with the production team of Gamble & Huff. They backed up groups such as Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The O Jays, The Stylistics, The Spinners, Wilson Pickett and Billy Paul and are probably best known in their own right for providing the theme music for the legendary TV show Soul Train with T.S.O.P. (The Sound Of Philadelphia) . With the rise of the Philly soul sound at the beginning of the '70s, business was booming at Gamble and Huff's Philadelphia International imprint and as a result M.F.S.B. were kept very busy in the studio providing backing for the aforementioned artists and leaving little time for the groups own recording sessions. It wasn t until 1973 that the group had a chance to record material in its own name and released their self-titled debut album to high acclaim later that same year. MFSB features extended Funk-Soul-Jazz work-outs as on the seven-minute cover of Curtis Mayfield s Freddie's Dead that opens the set. The group also re-interpreted Sly Stone's Family Affair to great effect while emphasising the flute as the driving force for their version of their label mates The O Jays Back Stabbers R&B chart topper from the previous year.
