The Point is.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits (Audio CD)
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.
