Liner Note Author: Ian Dewhirst.
Philly Disco: '70s Dance Floor Anthems from the City of Brotherly Love is another high-quality budget compilation from Backbeats, a division of the U.K.'s Harmless label. Put together by Ian Dewhirst, the compiler behind the well-regarded Mastercuts label, this set features a dozen full-length and extended mixes of proto-disco and disco singles from Philly. Some of the inclusions were major hits, while others were either near misses or unfairly obscure. As with most other Backbeats releases, this will appeal to beginners and collectors alike since the price is cheap and the selection is expert level. Highlights include Teddy Pendergrass' "You Can't Hide from Yourself," Jean Carn's "Was That All It Was," and the finale, McFadden & Whitehead's classic anthem "Ain't No Stopping Us Now." ~ Andy Kellman
