Review: During the latter stages of the "Philly Soul" era, New York remixer Tom Moulton delivered a string of inspired, DJ friendly reworks for the Philadelphia International label. For proof, check this fine selection of classic Moulton mixes for the storied imprint. Check first his version of Archie Bell and the Drells' "Where Will You Go When The Party's Over", which he brilliantly teases out and increases in intensity over nine spellbinding minutes. The funkier flex of People's Choice's "Jam, Jam, Jam (All Night Long)" is a sweaty, low-down treat, while the Teddy Pendergrass rework is a soaring disco classic in the Philly Soul style. Best of all, though, is the string-drenched disco celebration that is his mix of Lou Rawls' "See You When I Git There".
Review: ** REPRESS ALERT ** Originally released in 1976, this piping hot serving of funk from the legendary Philadelphia outfit People's Choice will satisfy many a deep digger out there. Comprised of a revolving cast of musicians but centered around Frankie Brunson, David Thompson, Darnell Jordan and Marc Reed, the band presented one of their true finest on the electric groove of "Here We Go Again" which bursts at the seams with its fervent soul power. All creamy Rhodes, sing-along vocals and conga drums galore. On the flip, they go for something more lo-slung on the James Brown influenced "Jam, Jam, Jam" (All Night Long) featuring some hot guitar licks and a truly roaring vocal delivery.
