I too can add little to Jay's very extensive and, by the way, bang-on review for this album, save to say that this is terrific set of extended remixes by the impeccable Tom Moulton.

As you gently slip the first disc of this 4-setter into your CD player, you'll hear the familiar intro to The O'Jay's Backstabbers. And boy, are you in for a treat - 9 minutes and 36 seconds worth to be exact. After that comes, track, after track of brilliant Philly Soul mixed for your aural delight. It's so good you almost don't want to get the discs out of their covers so precious are they.

Mr Moulton's passion for soul music is apparent at every turn - a true love-affair with the incomparable Sound of Philadelphia.

Oh, If you think you know these songs by the way, then think again. These remixes bring, if this is possible, even more to what are already some of the finest soul recordings ever made.

Never has £11.99p brought me quite so much enjoyment. Buy it, buy it, buy it!

PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CLASSICS-THE TOM MOULTON REMIXES.

March 18, 2012 by dereksmusicblog

PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CLASSICS-THE TOM MOULTON REMIXES.

After a long wait since the project was first announced, one of the most anticipated box sets will soon be released. 26 March 2012 is the day when Philadelphia Classics-The Tom Moulton Remixes will be released and thankfully, I've been given a sneak preview of this box set. I'm pleased to tell you that Philadelphia Classics-The Tom Moulton Remixes has been well worth the wait, featuring thirty-one Philly classics, including seventeen brand new remixes. Truly, the music is stunning, having spent some time just reveling in the magnificence of the music. It's a fitting tribute to Tom Moulton, a man who is an innovator, and whose influence on dance music has been huge. Without Tom Moulton, there would have been neither remixes nor twelve inch singles, and doubtless, the history of DJ-ing would be very different. Single-handedly Tom invented both the remix and twelve inch single, while creating some of the best remixes in the history of music. Before I tell you about the music on Philadelphia Classics-The Tom Moulton Remixes, I'll tell how Tom Moulton inadvertently invented both the remix and twelve inch single.

How Tom Moulton invented the remix is a fascinating tale of how fate and being in the right place at the right time can change history. Throughout Tom's career, he'd been steeped in music, working firstly as a junior promo man for United Artists, RCA and then King Records from the late fifties onwards. By the late sixties and disillusioned with the dishonesty and corruption that scarred music, Tom left the music industry.

Tom Moulton is presented with the task of re-cutting some of the most highly regraded soul classics into a 4 cd box set. Only he could describe the the thrill of receiving the multi-tracks and reliving a host of forgotten moments, previously hidden within the original mixes. And only he would be capable of revisiting the 'reels' with the means of re-telling one of the greatest stories in soul music. I assume Tom was furnished with the digital 'stems' rather than the original one and two inch reels - partly through reasons of practicality but primarily for ease of editing. Tom has approached the mixes with respect for the original and has not taken liberties with the use of hyper-compression and unnecessary over eq-ing. Clearly there are going to be those who reside in the 'Any Philly is Great Philly!' camp, particularly as we roll and tumble away from the heady period of the great soul recordings of the '60s and 70s, moving into the continuing cut and thrust of the 21st century's political and cultural landscape. But I still think it's important to view even Tom's work with a critical eye.

I was first aware of Tom's work when I bought Metropolis's 'I love New York' 7" and from then on made a point checking him out - to the point of buying any cuts with his name on. Tom's workmanship took me through the disco period with not as much as a scratch. A Tom Moulton mix assured you this was going to be more than worth parting with you hard-earned greens. Back in the disco days you could've spun a whole evening of Moulton mixes and kept everyone on their feet. Tom was the DJ's patron saint. Even on a wet Tuesday night, with Tom's good luck charm, everything was going to be ALRIGHT!

Can't add anything to the extensive review above, only to say this is an exceptionally well put together collection of genuinely great tracks, remixed with real attention to detail and not just 'housed' like some projects. The packaging is great (it comes in a small box) and the liner notes are informative yet concise. Absolutely essential for the bargain price. Go get it!

I can only totally agree with most of the reviews of this terrific Tom Moulton Remixed boxed set, if you love Soul/Disco music you should not be with out this set. As I am typing this I am listening to Track 3, CD1 Slow Motion by Johnny Williams, a track I have never heard before.

I just have one negative comment, I have the original CD Various Philadelphia Classics on the PIR label 468991 2 which has 8 of these remixed tracks which are on this box set, think that is a shame that Demon or Harmless Records didn't put the 8 tracks that are on the PIR CD together on one of these CD's leaving the 3 other CD's with new remixes.
