Product description

Product Description

Following on from the current Top 40 album Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits and the amazing response to Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes it gives us great pleasure to introduce Philadelphia International: The 40th Anniversary Box Set the most complete and comprehensive study of the Philadelphia International catalogue to date.

We invited world acknowledged Philadelphia International expert Ralph Tee to return to compile his second Box Set for the label following his previous ground-breaking 14 x vinyl LP box set in 1986 (over 25 years ago) which still
regularly sells for £100+ on e-bay and throughout collectors circles.

This time Ralph has the added benefit of a further 25 years of experience studying the Philadelphia International operation and a lot more time to play with almost 800
minutes or over 12 1/2 hours of pure quality music from one of the greatest labels of all time.

Also included within the package will be a 60 page full-size booklet containing full sleeve notes and track details from Ralph Tee (Ralph is also author of the definitive Who s Who In Soul Music ) which will also include a number of archive photos and key album scans.

We are also proud to include within the booklet for the first time ever, a fully comprehensive complete discography of all U.S. Philadelphia International and related labels compiled by Philadelphia International expert David Grimes
(aka Phillydave ).

An absolute must for all Philly collectors and especially Philadelphia International archivists as there
has never been an officially printed full discography before.

All recordings will be fully re-mastered to the highest quality.
