Philly CreamPhilly Cream ... LP
WMOT/Fantasy, 1979. Very Good ... $2.99
A sweet batch of Philly grooving – very much in the mode of Philly International work from a few years earlier, kind of carrying the torch of disco Philly, once Gamble & Huff turned towards some mellower modern material. The group features many members of the Ingram Family, as well as Michael Pedicin Jr on sax – and vocals are handled by David Simmons, Len Barry, and Damon Harris. Titles include "Soul Man", "Join The Army", "Sly Hi", "Motown Review", and a version of "Doin It To Death" LP, Vinyl record album

Frankie SmithDouble Dutch Bus/Double Dutch ... 12-inch
WMOT, 1980. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
The verses for these tracks are based on various jump-roping rhymes, but the best parts are the goofy non-sense vocals, sort of like the Zoom language, that you'll recognize from the Cold Cut remix of "Paid In Full." All done over that 1980-era loping rollerskating style music. 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Fat Larry's BandAct Like You Know (voc, inst) ... 12-inch
WMOT, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An excellent groover from Fat Larry's Band – a tightly snapping 80s groove tune with a sweeet soulful edge, vamping along at a rhythm that's quite similar to "Help is On The Way", by the Whatnauts! 12-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ Heaven & EarthThat's Love ... LP
WMOT/Fantasy, 1981. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great little album from Heaven & Earth – recorded after their big years on Mercury, but with Philly production that gives them a nice fresh sound! The production's a lot more in a modern soul vein than before – but the harmonies are top-shelf all the way, and seem to stretch out even more than on earlier albums, hitting ranges that are normally the province of indie soul recordings from the early 70s, instead of slicker ones from the early 80s. "That's Love" is a great soul number that reminds us of the building emotion of the group's classic "Guess Who's Back In Town" – and other good tracks include "I Really Love You", "You're A Blessing", and "Give Love One More Chance".

David SimmonsLove Tonight ... CD
Society Hill/Essential, 2015. New Copy ... $13.99 16.98
David Simmons is a Philly soul singer from way way back – part of that second wave of Philly 70s talent that broke on the WMOT label at the end of the decade, and still going surprisingly strong after all these years away from the studio! Simmons is part of this great generation of Philly soul talents who seem to be reemerging in recent years – directed in the studio by producer/arranger Butch Ingram – who, like Simmons, has matured nicely with age – and finds the right kind of groove to match the smooth, sophisticated style of David's vocals. The approach is a bit like later solo material from Teddy Pendergrass – in the best adult Philly mode – and titles include "Love Tonight", "The World Belongs To Me", "Yesterday's Song", "I'm In Love Again", "Holding Back", and "Hooked On You".
