Description by

Formed in Philadelphia in the early '70s, People's Choice were one of the cornerstones of Gamble and Huff's TSOP records. The group had their biggest hit in 1975 with "Do It Any Way You Wanna", which is considered to be one great example of mid-'70s Philly dance music. Equally known for their instrumentals as for their vocals, this collection features them at their funky finest.

Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Golden Classics isn't so much a greatest-hits collection as it is a repackaging of People's Choice's first album for Philadelphia International, with a few B-sides thrown in for good measure. That album, 1975's Boogie Down U.S.A., recast the sometimes-gritty funk group in the Gamble & Huff mold, featuring a four-on-the-floor pulse and an overall smoother production. Joined here by members of MFSB, it's not surprising that they sound like a tougher version of that group on their crossover pop and R&B hit "Do It Any Way You Wanna." The studio gloss sometimes works against the gruff voice of Frankie Brunson, but ultimately prevails on instrumentals like "Boogie Down USA" and minimal vocal tracks with the lyric reduced to a basic chant, like "Party Is a Groovy Thing." Certainly the strongest album of People's Choice, and as such, the best place to start listening. ~ Wade Kergan
