Philadelphia International, Late 70s/Early 80s. Used ... $6.99

CBS/Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Excellent work by this oft-overlooked east coast harmony group!

Leon HuffHere To Create Music ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1980. Very Good+ ... $2.99
One of the most compelling later albums on Philly International – a killer mix of jazzy numbers that have a very different style than most of the other Philly work at the time!

A killer album by MFSB – arguably one of their best!
