Review

Along with Thom Bell, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff defined the sweet, smooth Philadelphia Sound in the early '70s, producing hit records by the O'Jays, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, and Joe Simon, among many others. Spanning three discs, The Philly Sound (1966-1976): Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff is a stunning chronicle of the team at their peak, featuring all of their biggest hits, plus a generous selection of neglected gems. For some tastes, the three discs may be a bit too much of a good thing -- often, these songs sound more remarkable when they're heard in small doses -- but for a definitive overview of Gamble & Huff's accomplishments, this can't be beat. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
