“Amen Brother”
I’m from Philly and I remmeber how I used to look forward to each new Philly International release becuase you knew it was gonna be down. We need a infusion of consiousness today, where are the new Gamble and Huffs at? Music used to provide inspiration , and direction. It was a cohesive that we as Black folks could rally around, now alot of it is cancerous.

mercy mercy me

Doing some interesting research about the Gamble & Huff music machine is that Kenny came up with the lyrics and Leon provided the music since he played piano on many of the songs and of course many songwriters on staff. BTW that bass player’s name who provided those bass licks on “For the Love of Money” is Anthony Jackson. “MAD PROPS” to the folks who made us “GET DOWN WITH THE PHILLY SOUND”. The stuff they did with the Iceman Jerry Butler was just practice of what was to come down the Philly soul pipeline. I’ll tell ya be down on the floor with each speaker next to your earhole, listening and taking in every word sung and every note played!!!
