PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CLASSICS:

THE TOM MOULTON REMIXES SPECIAL VINYL EDITION

March 25th 2013 (Harmless) 8XLP (HURTXVINYL112)

Harmless are proud to announce that they are approaching the 1st Year anniversary of the ground-breaking ‘Philadelphia International: The Tom Moulton Remixes’. This is the album which has remained in Disco, Box Sets and Classic RnB chart listings throughout the last 44 weeks and which is now sailing past the 10K sales mark.

Throughout the last 10 months they have been inundated with requests from numerous sources to release this package as a 12” vinyl series. Harmless are now pleased to announce that they have cleared a special 12” vinyl edition to celebrate the 1st anniversary of this incredible package which will be released exactly one year to the day the CD version was released!

All 31 mixes have been re-sequenced over 8 x 180 gram 12” discs for maximum fidelity.

Brand new artwork is featured on the individual 12” sleeves.

All 8 x 12”’s will be housed in a heavyweight custom-designed collector’s box to keep everything in pristine condition.

March, April, May and June 2013 will be busy months for Tom Moulton as we prepare for the release of the mind-blowing “Philly Re-Grooved Volume 3” – further details in the coming weeks.

These are some of the greatest Philadelphia International classics remixed by the greatest remixer of all time finally all together on 12” vinyl for the first time.

This is a once-in-a- lifetime package which should be in everybody’s collection. You know it makes sense!
