Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits is an album which no one thought would ever come out! Over the years there have been
numerous attempts to re-edit or remix various Philadelphia International tracks, many of which fell at the final hurdle, which was getting
the approval from Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff - the founders of PIR. So, following 18 months of development and clearance procedures,
Harmless is proud to announce the first 100% fully endorsed Philadelphia International The Re-Edits project, featuring TODD TERJE, DJ APT ONE, THE NOODLEMAN, J*SKI, TOUCHSOUL AND MORE!
Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits will be the first release in the ‘Philly 40’ campaig. With 4 major Philadelphia International releases planned for January and February including PIR: The Re-Edits, PIR: The Tom Moulton Remixes, PIR: The Roots Of Philly and the PIR 40th anniversary box set.
Even as a presale, the CD spent most of the holiday season in the top 10 in Amazon UK's R&B and Soul sales charts.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that this is a European-market-only, hard-copy-only release, excess press units have not been made available for the North American market. However, many of the songs are available for streaming via third-party sites such as soundcloud. They are hyperlinked in the tracklist below.
