As introduced by the host, Jeff Foxx, Philly International’s biggest hits were filled with lush strings and beautiful horns from their house orchestra, MFSB. Gamble & Huff recall what they remember about the arrangements, and call out many of the people who were responsible for these recordings. Members of the Delfonics discuss Thom Bell’s arrangements of their early hits like “Ready or Not” and “La La La La La Means I love You.” We also hear from Russel Tompkins, Jr of the Stylistics.
