Rate this Album
UK release date 30.08.2010
Father of the original disco mix Tom Moulton goes back to his first love the Philly sound and makes all those classic anthems sparkle again. These tunes replete with strings horns and funky guitar predate the golden age of disco when bands such as The Delfonics, MFSB, Gamble & Huff, Heaven & Hell and countless others ruled the floor and airwaves.
12 golden nuggets for you to revel in including First Choice's seminal classic 'Gotta Get Away' awash with strings,floaty rhodes and disco drums. It's a testament to this special era of positivity and joy. Just check the arrangements on the other tracks too,absolutely stunning, soaring melodies, creative improvisations, soulful structures and moments of pure reflective tenderness!
Crafted like vintage antiques, these retro yet rugged philly floor fillas are the perfect antidote to todays homogenised, robotic dance scene. Real music, real musicians equals real emotion, there really is no substitute. Uncle Tom cuts the mustard on this beatific belter.
