Philadelphia International 40th Anniversary Box Set – Box 10 CD – Harmless

Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes – 4 CD – Harmless

Il cosiddetto Philly Soul è stato uno dei grandi fenomeni della musica nera degli anni ’70, nato all’incirca nel 1971 per merito dell’etichetta Philadelphia International, è venuto dopo la Motown e la Stax (e la Hi Records) ed è stato il fenomeno che ha traghettato la musica nera dal soul e R&B alla Disco Music. Soprattutto nei suoi primi anni di vita ha regalato tanta buona musica ma non era mai stato, come si dice con una brutta parola, “antologizzato” seriamente. Qualche anno fa la Sony aveva pubblicato un cofanetto quadruplo Love Train: The Sound Of Philadelphia (e prima un triplo nel 1997 Philly Sound: The Story Of Brotherly Love) che raccoglieva il meglio di Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, O’Jays, Billy Paul, MFSB, Teddy Pendergrass e tantissimi altri ma ora in occasione del 40° anniversario dell’etichetta di Philadelphia, Pennsylvania una piccola casa inglese, la Harmless (che però fa parte del gruppo Demon) dedica ben due box retrospettivi all’avvenimento.

Il primo di 4 CD è indirizzato agli amanti della disco: Tom Moulton è stato uno degli “inventori” dei remix che impazzavano in piena era disco music e per questo cofanetto i compilatori, oltre a raccogliere la versioni dei 12″ già esistenti gliene hanno commissionate 16 nuove da unire alle 15 già preesistenti per un totale di 31 versioni. Come diciamo “noi inglesi”, it’s not my cup of tea, nel senso che non sono amante del genere ma per gli appassionati è una vera festa. Questa è la lista completa con titoli, artisti, durate e anno:

Questo secondo Box è in uscita il 10 aprile mentre il primo è disponibile da marzo (da pochi giorni comunque). Qui c’è “trippa per gatti” e considerando i contenuti e il fatto che si tratta di materiale import costano relativamente poco. Il primo, indicativamente tra i 20 e i 30 euro e il secondo tra i 50 e i 60 euro.
