Product Description

CD Description

Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits is an album which no one thought would ever come out! Over the years there have been
numerous attempts to re-edit or remix various Philadelphia International tracks, many of which fell at the final hurdle, which was getting the approval from Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff - the founders of PIR. So, following 18 months of development and clearance procedures, Harmless is proud to announce the first 100% fully endorsed Philadelphia International The Re-Edits project.

Many of these Re-Edits and Remixes have been popular with DJ s as privately shared downloads or even unauthorised bootlegs Todd Terje s re-edit of Dee Dee Sharp Gamble s Easy Money and Tim McAllister s remix of Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes Be For Real as just two examples.

The appetite for Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits will further be fuelled by the demand for last year s Get Down With The Philly
Sound project from BBE and, of course, Harmless s own Philly Re-Grooved: The Tom Moulton Remixes Vols 1 & 2 all big sellers at the time and all consistent back catalogue sellers.

Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits will be the first release in the Philly 40 campaign which is celebrating the 40th anniversary
of PIR. Expect the usual comprehensive PR, Online and Radio campaign which will include several key press articles and radio specials
about the 40 years of Philadelphia International.

4.0 out of 5 stars New twist 24 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Re-edits rather than remixes (home dj making rather than with original tracks), there are some corkers on here that take the best of some of the Philly tracks or just give them a new lease of life without tinkering too much.

Personal fave is the Deep & Disco rework of 'Darlin' Darlin' Baby' that gives it a more disco/beat feel. Good stuff. No, you can't beat the originals, but you can give them a fresh twist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Class 31 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply, this is one of the best and most joyous compilations I have ever had the pleasure to hear.

Yes, it is made up of re-edits of the original material - so if you only ever want to hear the original versions you'll be making a mistaken purchase; but the quality here is OUTSTANDING. The Philly catalogue is incredible to begin with and the re-edits/remixes here are, almost without exception BRILLIANT and all maintain the crucial Philly flavour whilst finding a new slant - Pure GOLD for DJs, and there's not one track I'd skip when listening at home either. Well done & thanks to all concerned.

5.0 out of 5 stars PHILADELPHIA RE-EDITS 26 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
January 20, 2012 by dereksmusicblog


Sometimes, once you've heard that a new album will be due out soon, then you can't wait to get your hands on to review. That's how I felt about Harmless' latest compilation, Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits, which I've waited to hear for a number of weeks. This is just the latest compilation that will be released during 2012, which is the fortieth anniversary of Philadelphia International Records. As if this latest compilation isn't enough, then fans of the Philly Sound will soon be able to enjoy a four disc box set entitled Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes which is due for release in February 2012 on Harmless. Now if that isn't enough to whet your appetite, then how a ten, yes ten disc box set which will be released later in 2012. However, getting back to the Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits compilation, this is an interesting concept which I'll now tell you about.

Now, most similar albums of re-edits or remixes see many of the same familiar names used to either re-edit or remix classic tracks like this. Not here though. Instead, what we have is a number of re-edits from DJs who've been fans of the music, and maybe aren't the highest profile DJs. This is quite refreshing, as on many albums, the usual suspects are dragged out to give their "take" on a track. So what we have here, are twenty-one re-edits from DJs who maybe wouldn't usually find their music on such an esteemed compilation. To me, this is part of the attraction to the compilation, hearing fresh takes on the music by fans of the music. These DJs come from not quite the four corners of the globe, but pretty close.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Point is..... 25 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First of all a HUGE thank you to the wonderful Ian Dewhirst for giving us another fine compilation of Philly crackers.Although there are a couple of people knocking this,clearly the point is being lost on them.To me the album absolutely delivers on it's main goal and that is to get this wonderful music across to a younger audience and by giving these tracks to a younger set of "remixers" the project works fantastically well. Although old enough to remember buying all the wonderful Philly tunes,since '72, I'm still dj ing and playing loads of current dance and RnB tunes therefore can totally appreciate what the guys were trying to achieve. I just think it's great to hear all the songs with a different slant on them. Listen, we all know the originals will never be bettered, but it's another fantastic comp for the collection. Add to that we could have Philly Soul back in the charts again fills me with Joy!!! Well done to everyone involved in the project.

Re-editing only allows for you to work with what is in the original stereo mixes you are working from, but that is no reason to add gimmicks and "obvious" edits to classic music like this!

This compilation is obviously an attempt to seduce the ears of younger (20 something) dj's and listeners, and that is why these re-edited versions are putrid.

I have to ask myself if Ian Dewhirst actually respects and appreciates this music, or is he just trying to "cash" in on a market that mainly consists of clueless and unseasoned musical ears. I will have to ponder this.....

The only tasteful (read: "Musical") re-edits you'll find here are from JSKI. He seems to have more of a deep respect for this music, and those are the only tracks I will keep in my ipod from this blasphemous compilation.

On a positive note, I just picked up the 4-cd boxed set "Philadelphia International Classics", The Tom Moulton remixes, and i'm in absolute heaven! THIS is how you treat classic music..with respect, taste, and musicality--Thanks TOM!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Conservative reedits 8 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A bunch of re-edits from producers I never have heard of before. Most of them creates very conservative edits, some of them almost impossible to distinguish from the originals if not heard side-by-side.

On the other hand, the PIR catalogue contains some of the best productions ever heard in the soul/disco field, so I get why some producers creates very careful changes. The mixes of the up/mid-temo songs on CD1 are generally more interesting than the ballads on CD2.

Not bad at all, but the Tom Moulton re-edits (Philly Re-Grooved - The Tom Moulton Philly Groove Remixes, Philly Re-Grooved: The Tom Moulton Remixes Volume 2: The Master Returns) are a better starting-point for the disco affectionado.
