I'll start off by admitting that I am a big Tom Moulton fan, from his classic early work to his newer mixes of both classic tracks and the occasional new track. And his work here is as good as ever - each tune clearly mixed with love and respect. "Jay" and "Music Lover" have done some excellent reviews here, so won't go in to any more detail abou the fantastic tunes.

But the sound is APPALLING - all midrange and distorted, with little bass. I'm surprised that none of the other reviewers have mentioned how bad it is (and I would be interested in anyone elses feed back on the sound quality). I have many of these tracks (in their original mixes) on other CD's and vinyl and every one of them sounds far better quality than on this CD.

How did this get past quality control? Tom Moulton must be very disapointed to have his work handled in this way.

As much as I love these mixes, as a professional DJ I could never play any of these tracks out.

Such a pity. I just hope they get around to remastering it.

I also have Dimitri's "Get Down With The Philly Sound" which is a double album of similar material and that sounds extremely good.

Everything that other reviewers say about the music on this release is true, but it's also true that this cd has been mastered SO hot that it's practically unlistenable (I've never been able to listen to it entirely).
Every track is WAY, WAY LOUD, AS UNNECESSARY AS THIS REVIEW APPEARING IN UPPER CASE!!!!!!!!!!!!! WITH EXTRA EXCLAMATION MARKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Because there's no dynamic to the sound, ie there's no distinction between 'quiet' and 'loud' parts, and because this creates unnecessary distortion, the cd quickly becomes tiring and painful to listen to (esp. in headphones) - ever noticed this in other cd releases of the last decade? Although initially it seems the greater volume creates greater clarity, it's a false economy - so many 'remastered' and new release cds just sound terrible.
Caveat Emptor - I'm sure Tom Moulton would not want his work to sound like this release; it's one of the worst examples of its kind.

WOW,
That's what I have to say after listening
to this for the very first time today!!! I was blessed to get this in my
mailbox today and I was flabbergasted as to what I heard!!

I'm here to give you a full report!!
This is not for your everyday 1979 Donna/KC/BeeGees Disco Fan.

This is for the Philly Sound Fans--(like me)
and it does not disappoint one bit!!

Twelve tracks all newly remixed by Tom Moulton.
And I say he is at the top of his game here!!
The Good Parts first;

Let's go thru them 1 by one:

1 - "We're On The Right Track" - Ultra High Frequency - 6:36
from the first 10 seconds I knew I was gonna love this--As many times as I played the original single, I knew the differences right away.
The bongos are right up front and clear this time around; and it starts with the Instrumental verse for the first 2:40--the rest is just like
the original but with a W I D E dynamic quality that was absent with the
original---the train at the break is lowered (thank goodness),
and it goes to a long instrumental fade out
for the last 41 seconds--DYNOMITE!!
It is credited to Ultra High Frequency featuring Ben Aiken.
(now we know who was the lead singer)

2 - "Armed And Extremely Dangerous" - First Choice - 6:34
I expected the least surprises from this one but I was wrong.
The intro bangs into the song right away (no elongated looping), but takes a little different turn going into the instrumental a
bit earlier at 4:13, keeping the momentum up. The strings & horns
are clear as can be during this part and the police siren is gone!!!

it is outrageous that these wonderful pieces must be heard so badly. It is not fair to pay for a disc so even just £ 1. I hope that things like that do not happen often, out of respect for those who buy and listen to music and respect for the artists themselves.

In recent months Ian Dewhirst has been at the helm of the Demon Music Group's 'Back Beats' series, adopting the very same approach seen in his earlier 'Original Mastercuts' series, issuing specifically themed compilations that manage to provide a qualitative overview that represents exceptional value for money, particularly in an age of digital downloading and non-tangible product. All of this work has been informed by Dewhirst's experiences as a DJ, beginning in the early 1970s when he was establishing himself within the 'Northern Soul Scene', accompanied by a broader interest in what was often termed 'black music' and a particularly sensitive ear for identifying great tracks that would later become acknowledged classics of their kind.

This compilation should be seen as a labour of love for Dewhirst, who has steadfastly championed the 'Philly Sound' throughout these years, and who has recently been granted licensing access to the 'Philly Groove' and 'Philadelphia International' back catalogues (as seen through the recent 'Back Beats' issues 'Philly Disco' (BACKB003) and 'Philly Freedom' (BACKB015). His unstinting involvement with the music has ultimately led to this compilation being issued, with the legendary Tom Moulton having "access to the original Philly Groove master tapes...in order to produce a series of remixes on his favourite tracks".

For the uninitiated, Moulton is often credited with creating the 12" mix (although Moulton describes it as a purely accidental invention!
