Product description

CD Description

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.

A bunch of re-edits from producers I never have heard of before. Most of them creates very conservative edits, some of them almost impossible to distinguish from the originals if not heard side-by-side.

On the other hand, the PIR catalogue contains some of the best productions ever heard in the soul/disco field, so I get why some producers creates very careful changes. The mixes of the up/mid-temo songs on CD1 are generally more interesting than the ballads on CD2.

Not bad at all, but the Tom Moulton re-edits (Philly Re-Grooved - The Tom Moulton Philly Groove Remixes, Philly Re-Grooved: The Tom Moulton Remixes Volume 2: The Master Returns) are a better starting-point for the disco affectionado.

Re-edits rather than remixes (home dj making rather than with original tracks), there are some corkers on here that take the best of some of the Philly tracks or just give them a new lease of life without tinkering too much.

Personal fave is the Deep & Disco rework of 'Darlin' Darlin' Baby' that gives it a more disco/beat feel. Good stuff. No, you can't beat the originals, but you can give them a fresh twist.

Re-editing only allows for you to work with what is in the original stereo mixes you are working from, but that is no reason to add gimmicks and "obvious" edits to classic music like this!

This compilation is obviously an attempt to seduce the ears of younger (20 something) dj's and listeners, and that is why these re-edited versions are putrid.

I have to ask myself if Ian Dewhirst actually respects and appreciates this music, or is he just trying to "cash" in on a market that mainly consists of clueless and unseasoned musical ears. I will have to ponder this.....

The only tasteful (read: "Musical") re-edits you'll find here are from JSKI. He seems to have more of a deep respect for this music, and those are the only tracks I will keep in my ipod from this blasphemous compilation.

On a positive note, I just picked up the 4-cd boxed set "Philadelphia International Classics", The Tom Moulton remixes, and i'm in absolute heaven! THIS is how you treat classic music..with respect, taste, and musicality--Thanks TOM!!

Quite simply, this is one of the best and most joyous compilations I have ever had the pleasure to hear.

Yes, it is made up of re-edits of the original material - so if you only ever want to hear the original versions you'll be making a mistaken purchase; but the quality here is OUTSTANDING. The Philly catalogue is incredible to begin with and the re-edits/remixes here are, almost without exception BRILLIANT and all maintain the crucial Philly flavour whilst finding a new slant - Pure GOLD for DJs, and there's not one track I'd skip when listening at home either. Well done & thanks to all concerned.
