PHILLY REGROOVED | TOM MOULTON REMIXES SPECIAL VINYL EDITION
8 X LP
October 28th 2013 | Harmless | CD (HURTVINYL122)
Following repeated requests to issue the best-selling Philly Re-Grooved series in a vinyl format, Harmless is proud to announce the release of “Philly Re-Grooved: The Tom Moulton Remixes: Special Vinyl Edition”.
Demand for the 3 existing Philly Re-Grooved releases has been remarkably consistent over the last 2 years, so they decided to launch another 8 x 12” Vinyl Box Set as a companion to “Philadelphia International: The Tom Moulton Remixes: Special Vinyl Edition” which was released in March this year.
Please note that this will be a limited-pressing run and will be unlikely to be re-pressed once the initial run has sold out.
• All 40 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 collectors box to keep everything in pristine condition.
These are some of the greatest Tom Moulton remixes of hugely in-demand Philly classics finally together on 12” vinyl for the very first time.
