    I've always thought that "Does Your Mama Know About Me" by BOBBY TAYLOR & THE VANCOUVERS sounds very "Philly". I can just imagine it having being done by THE INTRUDERS. 😊

    The original 1969 Gordy LP Artwork showed Frank Wilson as the producer, so presumably he put together the LP and included some material from other producers.

    There are scans etc. at 45Worlds.
