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.
