Descripción del producto
Dimitri From Paris se anima con la que es su quinta recopilación para BBE, titulada Get Down With The Philly Sound. Una colección diseñada con admiración de fan a partir de temas de la edad dorada del sonido disco de la Philadelphia de los 70 que forjaron los pioneros, auténticos heroes, del género: Earl Young, fundador de los Trammps, Vince Montana de Salsoul Orchestra, Norman Harris, TJ Tindall... La edad de las cuerdas lascivas, los bajos propulsivos y los beats cuatro-pop-cuatro que pusieron fin al reinado de la Motown. Los productores Gamble & Huff abren ahora sus archivos, pista por pista, para darle a Dimitri la oportunidad de obrar su magia. El resultado es reluciente, no cabía otra.

Teddy Pendergrass is all over this, and I think he is my new favorite singer. Meanwhile, Eddie Kendricks has the voice of an angel, and Dimitri did such a wonderful job on the rework of "He's a Friend." The original is wonderful enough and was way ahead of its time, but Dimitri's version has a certain bounce to it--the gospel ending is phenomenal! I am also totally digging his version of "The Night the Lights Went Out in NYC." He turned it into a party song (kind of like Marvin Gaye's "Got to Give It Up") and emphasized certain parts, and the result just does it for me. "Somebody pulled the plug...out the socket. For safety's sake, I went to the door to lock it." and that incredible synth line. That's wonderful stuff right there.
Want to give him his props for including Carl Bean's "I Was Born This Way." That song really stood out for me on the first listen, and there is such a wonderful energy behind it. But I think that for me, "The Love I Lost" is the show-stealer. Dimitri pretty much said in the liner notes that he wanted to share this material with all of us, and I want to thank him for that. I still remember the day I found his music, and it has gotten me through the past 5 years in this increasingly dark and desperate world that we all find ourselves in.
I don't claim to have a soul or anything like that, but I really think that this kind of music helps me to actualize one. It is LOVE, and it is always an uplifting experience. There is so much joy behind everything here, and Dimitri has done all of us a SERVICE by putting it out and reviving it at this point in time.
And I have got to give respect to the fine folks over at BBE Records for the wonderful packages they release. They've done Cocktail Disco, Disco Forever, Nightdubbin', and now this, and the music, the artwork, the quality--always fantastic. They are worth every cent you pay for them.
I had never heard 'Living Together' by The Jacksons, but it is refreshingly familiar. Dimitri's re-edit smooths it our just enough. The great Teddy Pendergrass (R.I.P.) is well-represented here. His amazing voice shakes you to your very core in the acapella intro to 'The Love I Lost' (the seminal track which basically set down the rules for disco). Charles Mann's cover of the great Steely Dan track 'Do It Again' finally re-presents a thoroughly danceable version of this FM album track staple.
On a recent party on my friend's boat, these CD's were in heavy rotation along with many other Dimitri collections.
You simply cannot go wrong with these amazing discs. Maybe Dim will bless us with a bonus DVD next time as he did with an enhanced CD on the Defected 'In The House' collection. I noticed the price went up three times within the week I purchased it, so act fast as you may end up paying close to list price!
If you like soul, funky rhythm then this is for you. I love it!
