In 2021 Philadelphia International, perhaps second only to Motown as one of the best-known labels the world has ever known, is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. It seems therefore appropriate to look at Philadelphia’s R&B, Doo wop and early soul roots that inspired Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff to stop performing and form their own record labels in the mid-60s.

The city was home to a great many labels who helped to usher in the sound of what came to be called soul music, Cameo Parkway, V-Tone, Swan and Heritage are all represented.

The talent that emerged on these labels left an indelible impression on the development of soul music and include: Garnet Mimms (in The Gainors); Bobby Parker; The Orlons; Dee Dee Sharp; Don Covay and Lee Andrews.

Here are 29 proto soul tracks by some of the greatest artists to have emerged from the city of Philadelphia.

Fully detailed liner notes.
