Come back to a time when hometown radio & LP records ruled the day, and your local DJ hand-picked songs and dedicated them to the one you loved. You ll enjoy timeless hits that are as fresh today as when they came out of a small Philadelphia recording studio under the direction of two visionary music producers, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff who, with their family of singers, musicians, writers and arrangers, gave birth to the glorious and soulful Sound of Philadelphia.

TSOPMar 16, 2009
By B. Melody
I got a glimpse of this concert on PBS a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to purchase the DVD. This is the music I grew up on. Man! the music took me way back in the day, to those basement parties. I thought the production was great, the TSOP orchestra did a magnificient job and the sound quality was great. The best performance, in my book was by "The Mighty O'jays". They definitely brought the house down with a mini O'jays concert, belting out "I love music", "She use to be my girl" and "Love train". All the performances was good, even the bonus tracks by The Delfonics and Harold Melvin's Blue notes. The documentary as a bonus, was well put together and really gave you a good insight of the history of Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff the founders of TSOP.

What can I say ? : Phillysound rules!!May 10, 2009
By Rico Vrijhoeven
I buy al lot of "american" dvd's because in Europe these dvd's are not for sale. So everytime it's a bit of a surprise what you get. This dvd is amazing. The Sound and the performances of the O'Jays and Harold melvin make this dvd sparkling and takes you back to the seventies. My wish is to see those groups for once in my life. I hope they will come to Europe one of thes days!!!
Dont forget the bonus section with the full version of TSOP!!!! Dance across the room

Proud to be from PhillyMay 19, 2009
By Ronald J. Begley
And to have music like this representing my hometown. Understandably, some of the vocals here aren't on a par with the original recordings, but the best gauge of the quality of Gamble and Huff's music is that it doesn't sound dated 35 years after it was created.
The only disappointment for me was that there wasn't more concert footage included (The Intruders are conspicuously missing). Even that is partially made up for by the inclusion of a 40 minute plus mini-documentary on the making of the DVD.

If you love the Philly Sound you will love thisOct 24, 2009
By Rinus Dost
This is an awesome DVD.
However one can miss some Philly icons this is a great show.
The O'Jays still rock and especially Bunny Siglers performance of Me & Mrs Jones
is awesome and makes you forget about Billy Paul.
Harold Melvins Blue Notes still got the rythm and steady sound, they rock!
The band is just great and really creates the Philly sound.
Its great to see those old geezers are still going strong.
Also nice is the Gamble & Huff documentary unvealing history on
Philadelphia International Records and its artists.
Definitely a must-have!
