PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL CLASSICS:

THE TOM MOULTON REMIXES

HARMLESS

RELEASED MARCH 26TH

Following on from the massively popular Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits package, here is the 2nd release in our special Philly 40 campaign which is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Philadelphia International Records. Welcome to the hugely anticipated Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes .

Tom Moulton’s involvement with Philadelphia International spans the entire 40 years of their existence with many of his early mixes unaccredited in the era before the 12′ Disc. In 1977 PIR released the ground-breaking historic original double LP Philadelphia Classics which featured 8 of Tom Moulton s greatest PIR mixes. The album has subsequently been reissued several times and is rightly hailed as a must have classic for ANY serious music lovers collection.

Harmless have now taken all 8 tracks featured on the original Philadelphia Classics added a further 7 lost Tom Moulton mixes which have previously never been easily available and commissioned a further 16 BRAND NEW Tom Moulton mixes on The O Jay’s, Back Stabbers , The Intruders ‘(Win, Place or Show) She s A Winner’ , Billy Paul ‘The Whole Town’s Talking’ , Robert Upchurch ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’ , The Three Degrees’ ‘Year Of Decision’ and ‘When Will I See You Again’ , Archie Bell & The Drells ‘Let’s Groove’ and ‘Where Will You Go When The Party’s Over’ , Lou Rawls ‘You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine’ and ‘See You When I Get There’ , People’s Choice ‘Jam Jam Jam (All Night Long)’ , Teddy Pendergrass ‘I Don’t Love You Anymore’ , The O Jay’s ‘This Time Baby’ , The Futures ‘Party Time Man’ , Jean Carn’s ‘My Love Don’t Come Easy’ and The Jones Girls ‘Nights Over Egypt’.

This will be 31 true full-length Philadelphia International Classics in total delivered in a deluxe box with 4 separate CD s plus a 16 page booklet with sleeve notes by Lloyd Bradley and containing some rare photos of Tom Moulton and Sigma Sound studios.

In short, Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes will be one 2012 s most revered releases.
