    My Music of Philly blog on some of my favorite Philly-related recordings from 1968-70 is now online. It features songs by Archie Bell & the Drells, the Intrigues, Dusty Springfield, the Festivals and Odds & Ends. I hope you will check it out. What are some of your favorite Philly tracks from that time period?

    On my blog, I had left off at the Ebony's in 1971 and then back-tracked to look at 26 of my favorites prior to that time period (1957-1970). My next blog will be on the O'Jays' Back Stabbers album from 1972.

    Be well. Stay safe. Jim

    Yes, please keep it going. I just went through it again and couldn't stop till I got to the bottom. I was wondering if you did a blog covering the Ojays first album on Neptune, "In Philadelphia."

    Hi Mr. June.
    I did not touch on the O'Jays in Philadelphia yet because I knew I would be discussing the O'Jays in depth after I finished the five Philly Roots entries which took me a lot longer to get through than I had originally planned (life happened).

    Be well.

    Jim.

    One of my favorites from that period was "One Night Affair" by the O'Jays. Loved that record.

    As I work on the O'Jays' blog, I have been playing the In Philadelphia album that contains "One Night Affair" A LOT.

    Be well.

    That album is sometimes left out of the picture when discussing the group. They skip by it and go to the Back Stabbers album. I like all of the songs on the album with the exception of Something and Little Green Apples. They are not bad but seem out of place on this album.

    The Showstoppers live on UK TV (back in 71) ...

    A UK group who did minor gigs in their own right BUT who also backed up visiting US soul acts on their late 1960's UK tours. ... here they do a gig in their own right at a top UK soul club back in summer 68. As the ad says; they had just been contracted to be the backing band on the Showstoppers (then) upcoming UK tour ...
    for some reason (were they in the studio in Philly or doing US promo gigs) the tour slipped back from having a mid October start date to an early November start date ... they stayed in the UK for around a month ..
