The 2LP vinyl collector’s edition of Soul City Philadelphia sees soul music authority Clive Richardson select 28 of the most sought-after tracks from his 60-track 2CD compilation. These recordings served to establish the musical direction of the city in the late 1950s and early 1960s, at the dawn of the soul era. Compiled and annotated by soul music authority Clive Richardson, Soul City Philadelphia is the latest in a series that has previously explored the nascent soul scenes in Detroit, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.
America’s fourth-largest city proved to be a focal point for money, growing to be a major banking centre on the East Coast, and money also brought music – as cited by Tony Cummings, author of The Sound of Philadelphia, the “Philly sound was made possible due to a web of coincidences which brought the right people to the right place at the right time.”
