  Philadelphia soul - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Philadelphia (or Philly) soul, sometimes called the Philadelphia Sound, is a style of soul music characterized by lush instrumental arrangements often featuring sweeping strings and horns.
Philly soul songwriters and producers, including Thom Bell, Linda Creed, and teams of Gene McFadden and John Whitehead, and Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff (the latter pair of Philadelphia International Records) worked with a stable of studio musicians to develop the unique Philly sound used as backing for many different singing acts.
Philly soul was popular throughout the 1970s and it set the stage for the studio constructions of disco and urban contemporary music that emerged later in the decade.

 Soul music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Soul music is a combination of rhythm and blues and gospel which began in the late 1950s in the United States.
Soul music is differentiated by its use of gospel-music devices, its greater emphasis on vocalists, and its merging of religious and secular themes.
With the introduction of influences from electro music and funk, soul music became less raw and more slickly produced, resulting in a genre of music that was once again called RandB (although the term is no longer an acronym), ususally disinguished from the earlier rhythm and blues by identifying it as "contemporary RandB".

For many Soul Music fans, the rise of "The Sound of Philadelphia" in the early 70s was the high point in modern Soul, from which there has been a slow, steady deterioration.
Jackson follows the lives of Philadelphia's "Mighty Three," Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Thom Bell, from their childhoods to their emergence as the architects of the often lush, orchestral and danceable music that eclipsed Motown by 1973 and set the stage for the rise of disco music.
More importantly, it views the developments in soul music, race relations and the African American community over the past 40 years through the prism of Werner’s thesis that the spirit of both soul music and the early civil rights movement were fueled by a “Gospel Vision” emanating from the African American Christian church.

Critics enamored of the soul singing of Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding accused Bell and his groups of creating aural wallpaper, but the reality was that Bell and the Delfonics were setting the stage for a different kind of groove where subtlety and nuance reigned.
The Spinners were the greatest soul group of the early '70s, creating a body of work that defined the lush, seductive sound of Philly soul.
The Delfonics were arguably the premier sweet soul band of the late '60s and early '70s; their shimmering harmonies and William Hart's agonizing falsetto, coupled with Stan Watson's production and Thom Bell's arranging and writing touches, created many unforgettable love songs.

 Philly Soul
Philly soul was one of the most popular forms of soul music in the early '70s.
As a result, it was much smoother -- even slicker -- than the deep soul of the late '60s, but the vocals remained as soulful as any previous form of R&B. Philly soul was primary a producer's medium, as Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff and Thom Bell (not to forget Vince Montana Jr.
That isn't to short change the vocalists, since the Spinners, the O'Jays, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and the Stylistics were among fine soul singers with distinctive voices, but the sonic elements that made Philly Soul distinctive were the creation of the producers.

 The Northern Soul of Philadelphia
When I first read the sleeve notes I thought it was going to be a re-working of Kent's 'Ben Lees Philadelphia Story' because both compilations cover the same stable, but to my delight there was only an overlap of eight tracks (Nos 6, 11, 17, 18, 10, 16, 22 and 4).
The sleeve notes confirm that of the nineteen remaining numbers seven have never been issued on CD whilst a further twelve have not been released in the UK.
For a 'soul' release it is unusual in the number of optimistic tracks it contains and leaves the listener in a happy frame of mind.

As Jackson carefully details the emergence of the Philadelphia production style, almost record by record, and enumerates the previously largely anonymous contributions of various behind-the-scenes engineers, arrangers and musicians, an almost boring predictability sets in.
Jackson carefully threads through his story the changing backdrop of soul music and society in general, but it's what's happening in Philadelphia that drives the account.
