✨✧ Jean CarnWhen I Find You Love ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1979. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
Sublime smooth soul from Jean Carn – who by this point has really honed her act into a polished one, perfect for the rising modern soul groove of late Philly. The record features production by Jerry Butler, Dexter Wansel, and Eddie Levert – but Jean unites the whole thing with her ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

EbonysIt's Forever (mono, stereo) ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International, 1973. Near Mint- ... $7.99
"It's Forever" is really one of the group's best – a slow building tune with a sad little approach – building harmonies over the theme of "forever", climbing over the top into a heavenly soul sound! (Funky 45's) 7-inch, Vinyl record
(White label promo. Label has a sticker.)

EbonysNation Time/I Believe ... 7-inch
Philadelphia International, 1973. Very Good+ ... $4.99
Two nice ones from the Ebonys' rare years at Philly International. "Nation Time" is an O'Jays-esque political soul groover – of the "stand up and be counted" vein. "I Believe" is a reworking of the old Frankie Laine pop hit, transformed here into a surprisingly ... (Funky 45's) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

IntrudersEnergy Of Love ... CD
Philadelphia International/Intermusic (Spain), 1974. New Copy ... $10.99
A fantastic album from The Intruders – their last full record as a group, and a set that really shows all the growth they'd experienced as a harmony group in just a few short years!

JacksonsJacksons ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1976. Very Good Gatefold ... $9.99
Great stuff – and a key link between the early work of the Jackson 5 on Motown and Michael's later grooves with Quincy Jones! The Gamble/Huff team give the group a smooth sweet sound – definitely in a dancefloor mode, with some of the bassy riffs of Michael's Off The Wall album, but ...

✨✧ Thad Jones & Mel LewisPotpourri ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1974. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest albums ever recorded by the Jones/Lewis band – oddly cut for Philadelphia International, during the height of that label's classic soul output! The group is totally great – filled with deeply soulful players like Ron Bridgewater, Cecil Bridgewater, Billy Harper, ... (Jazz) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Philadelphia International/Legacy, 1970s. New Copy ... $4.99 6.99
Groundbreaking work, and a killer piece of Philly groove! MFSB were a large conglomeration of studio players who graced some of the first big Philly hits in the 70s, and here they break out on their own in a remarkable set of pre-disco tunes that form the blueprint for the rest of the 70s ...

Philadelphia International/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy ... $12.99
A key moment for the Philly soul scene of the 70s – and the first album to feature the MFSB backing group as a solo act on their own!

A great 2-fer set – one that brings together albums that feature MSFB at the height of their mid 70s powers! Philadelphia Freedom is a very big crossover moment for the Philly sound, and one of the biggest hits by the studio combo that drove the big Gamble/Huff hits of the 70s! The record's ...

A landmark album for the O'Jays – a set that moved them from the indie ranks to 70s megasoulstatus!

Philadelphia International, 1973. New Copy ... Just Sold Out!
A pivotal album from The O'Jays – and an undeniable Philly classic!

O'JaysTravelin At The Speed Of Thought ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Very Good+ Gatefold ... Just Sold Out!
Nice Philly work by the O'Jays – one of their key "second period" albums, and a lost little gem filled with great harmony soul tracks. The political agenda of early 70s Philly albums is mostly gone, and the group's returned to themes of love and romance – often done in a ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Killer Philly soul – 2 classic Billy Paul albums on one CD!

People's ChoiceTurn Me Loose ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1978. Near Mint- ... $11.99
One of the crowning achievements of People's Choice – a very hip group on the Philly scene, but one who spent most of their early years just releasing excellent (but under-circulated) 7" singles!

Lou RawlsShades Of Blue ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1980. Near Mint- ... $4.99
One of Lou Rawls' last albums for Philly International, and a really nice departure from the style of Lou's earlier hits for the label. It's got a sophisticated jazzy mode that has Rawls often singing with sparer piano backings than the fuller strings of the late 70s – in a way that's sort ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

Not as hit-heavy as some of Lou's other albums for Philly International, but a nice batch of mellow jazzy soul tracks – with arrangements by Thom Bell, Bunny Sigler, Dexter Wansel, and others.

Lou RawlsUnmistakably Lou ... LP
Philadelphia International, 1977. Near Mint- ... $2.99
One of the greatest records ever by Lou Rawls – if only for one cut! That's the amazing "See You When I Get There", which starts with a Fender Rhodes riff over a hard thumping beat – while Lou does this little monologue about calling his woman at home. Then strings sweep in, ... (Soul) read more LP, Vinyl record album

The move to Philly International did wonders for Lou's career – and there's no denying that the smooth soul sound of Gamble and Huff worked perfectly with his rich vocal style!

Brilliant work from Philly arranger Dexter Wansel – an album that moves the focus back to soul a bit more than on his Life On Mars set, but which also keeps in plenty of jazzy touches!

Funky funky Philly! Not only is this single one of the most obscure on Philadelphia International, it's also one of the hardest – as Johnny sounds more like a Memphis or Macon soul singer than anyone who ever recorded in the city of Brotherly Love.
