Three Degrees compilations don't come better than this budget offering, as this takes us from their early begining such as TSOP through their biggest hits such as the fantastic Year Of Decision and When Will I See You Again, to their later hi-energy disco work with Moroder, Giving Up Giving In and The Runner. It is not in strictly chronological order unfortunately but roughly so, as the two styles of their music are not entirely comfortable with each other. Their early music is harmonious and soulful, and the later style could be much more vigorous and even harsh in places. But both styles are great to listen to. This makes for an interesting listening experience, and takes me right back to the 70s! One evening in the late 70s I was sitting in a deserted restaurant in Norwich and who should sit at the next table to me but the very glamorous (and very American) Three Degrees. I liked their music before this encounter but loved it after!

We rated this CD five stars because it really presented us with the Best of three of the most representative artists of the Philly Sound!
‘The Sound of Philadelphia’ sung by The Three Degrees is a memorable part of their career!
‘My Simple Heart’ together with ‘When Will I See You Again’ are the two other pillars of the career!
Sound quality is very good! It is amazing how Sony UK revived the atmosphere of the original recordings and enhanced it to sound well-defined and solid in hi-tech systems like Mu.Te.Ki nowadays!
We recommend this product because it really spanned The Three Degrees’ career from beginning to end! The artwork was very well designed too!
Warmest regards,
Eliezer, Elizeu and Maria da Conceicao, Brazil.

This budget price compilation is a fine run through the most successful period for The Three Degrees, covering 1973-1979 from Dirty Ol' Man to My Simple Heart. Along the way there are four different record companies involved, Philadelphia International, CBS/Sony, Epic and Ariola. Over 18 tracks all released as singles you get an excellent perspective on the group, with some big hits along the way. Standouts are When Will I See You Again, Year Of Decision, The Runner, My Simple Heart, Givin' Up Givin' In, and Dirty Ol' Man - all happy memories from regular Top Of The Pops performances. The sound develops a little over the period from the classic Gamble and Huff Philadelphia sound to their foray into the l later disco beat. Whilst some of the tracks weren't hits and are unfamiliar to these ears the quality control lever is generally high, with the non-chronological running order aiding their integration. Perhaps the only criticism can be levelled at the booklet, which doesn't give a lot of information. A fine compilation otherwise.

They did what they did, and did it well.... Takes me back to the days of Baileys at Watford - the cabaret club....anyone remember? £10 a ticket, 3 Degrees on stage and you got chicken and chips in a basket too - damn, did we know how to party!! It's a great collection....simple as.

Grew up with a big crush on the lead singer, and listening to the CD bought all the memories flooding back...one of those albums that you ask yourself 'why have I never purchased this earlier'...if you remember the Three Degrees and liked their music, you will love this album

This CD took me back. I used to sing with the Three Degrees when I was 10 into a hairbrush. It has the classics on it that you will remember and has certainly took me back. Would recommend not driving around in a convertible with it playing like I did, you get some funny looks!!
