A tribute to the 30th anniversary of the 12" single – served up by one of the labels who used the format best back in the early days! The set doesn't feature every single on the Philly International label, but it does feature some of the best – a glittering assortment of late 70s and early 80s dancefloor numbers awash in silky soul, soaring rhythms, and some of the sweetest production going down at the time – a careful blend that few other labels could ever match, and a sound that made Philly International one of the key forces in shaping the sound of contemporary club! All tracks are presented here in the long 12" versions – and titles include "It's Critical" by Billy Paul, "The Rocketship" by Jocko, "Don't Let It Go To Your Head" by Jean Carn, "Ain't No Time Fa Nuthin" by The Futures, "I'm Just Thinking About Cooling Out" by Jerry Butler, "Let's Clean Up The Ghetto" by Philadelphia International All Stars, "I Wanna Do The Do" by Bobby Rush, "Freaky Deaky Sities" by Edwin Birdsong
