Hot on the heels of Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes we're proud to announce the forthcoming release of.......

Philadelphia International: The 40th Anniversary Box Set

Harmless HURTBOX001 Release Date: 21st May 2012

Following on from the recent Top 40 album ‘Philadelphia International: The Re-Edits” and the Current No.21 album ‘Philadelphia International Classics: The Tom Moulton Remixes’, it gives us great pleasure to introduce Philadelphia International: The 40th Anniversary Box Set – the most complete and comprehensive study of the Philadelphia International catalogue to date.

We invited world acknowledged Philadelphia International expert Ralph Tee to return to compile his second Box Set for the label following his previous ground-breaking 14 x vinyl LP box set in 1986 (over 25 years ago) which still regularly sells for £100+ on e-bay and throughout collectors circles. This time Ralph has the added benefit of a further 25 years of experience studying the Philadelphia International operation and a lot more time to play with over twelve and a half hours of pure quality music from one of the greatest labels of all time.

Also included within the package will be a 60 page full-size booklet containing full sleeve notes and track details from Ralph Tee (Ralph is also author of the definitive “Who’s Who In Soul Music”) which will also include a number of archive photos and key album scans.

We are also proud to include within the booklet for the first time ever, a fully comprehensive complete discography of all U.S. Philadelphia International and related labels compiled by Philadelphia International expert David Grimes (aka ‘Phillydave’). An absolute must for all Philly collectors and especially Philadelphia International archivists as there has never been an officially printed full discography before.

All recordings will be fully re-mastered to the highest quality.

We will be doing a series of specially commissioned film clips of both Ralph Tee and Richard Searling interviewing Philadelphia International co-founder Kenny Gamble. This will be distributed via various social network forums, blogs and You Tube in the weeks leading up to release.

No.1 on Amazon's Hot New Releases In Compilation Chart......

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/new-releases/music/386760011/ref=pd_nr_zgc_m_h__386760011_more?pf_rd_p=207142207&pf_rd_s=right-6&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=547786&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=0MBQ6E17RF32DKTEE3ZA

In fact we're firing up a few charts.......

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philadelphia-International-40th-Anniversary-Box/dp/B006ZGDC26/ref=zg_bs_694308_1

Wow. We've seen a phenomenal pre-sale on this - it's actually pre-selling at a faster rate than a normal Harmless goodie, which is brilliant news. If all those UK sales convert, then we'll be looking at being the first 10 CD Box Set to hit the Top 40 Compilation Chart which will be a gas!

In fact it looks like we'll need to repress by this Friday if it carries on at the same rate. Just nuts. If you want the first edition order quickly!
