PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL

Detroit sisters The Jones Girls were a hugely popular part of Philadelphia's PIR stable throughout the 1970's and 80's. They cut numerous sides for the label aided by the incredible production and arrangements of the infamous Gamble and Huff hit machine. "Night over Egypt" is one of their most enduring, evergreen tracks. As popular today with people as it was on its 1981 release. A record that truly transcended genre boundaries and touched people from all walks of life and of all taste persuasions, it is a true soul classic. Often imitated yet never bettered, it's no wonder the 12" has always been sought after, sometimes commanding collectors prices on the used vinyl marketplace. The flipside 'Love don't ever say goodbye' is a sultry, Dexter Wansell produced slow-jam that ticks all the right boxes! One for the lovers out there, pure quiet storm business. Here's your chance to own yet another essential stone cold classic from the archives!

Patrick says: I'm absolutely loving the current trend of official disco reissues! From the mystical synth lick at the start to the hair-raising groove at the end, "Nights Over Egypt" is flawless. I'm pretty sure listening to this once a day will make you better looking, smarter and way more irresistible to your chosen sex.

Life On Mars / The Sweetest Pain

Yet another highly in-demand 12" from the Philadelphia International stable and an artist whose records never go out of date! This is a killer double-sided beauty with the frenetic and jazzy "Life On Mars" from his debut 1976 album on the top-side and the mellow all-time classic and soul boy anthem "The Sweetest Pain" from 1979 on the flip. Two very different sides of a great artist, both of which show the level of diversity that he was capable of producing. The last legitimate release of this was back 1999 and a Mint copy will currently set you back circa £50, if you can ever find one. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: CLASSIC ALERT! Take a trip through the cosmos with the spaced out jazz-funk of the A-side, or groove into the moonlight with the sweet tear-jerking soul of the flip. Mega!
