Album Notes
Now That's The Philly Sound!

Vincent Montana, Jr. is known for his integral role in both the development of 'The Philadelphia Sound' as key MFSB rhythm section member and 'house band' studio musician for Philadelphia International Records as well as dance pioneer of the 'Disco Era' as the creative and driving force behind The Salsoul Orchestra.

Philly Ear Kandy features such exceptional artists as Ronnie Walker - the talented singer/songwriter who initiated the 'Philly Falsetto' a prevalent sound in Philadelphia-produced music; Dave Morris - who delivers the strong moral message of 'Gettin' Together' with his commanding and passionate vocal; The Girls (Brown Sugar) - four lovely ladies with angelic-like voices who put their heart and soul into their performance; Cecil Parker - a truly gifted singer/songwriter shares his classic sound on these soulful Philly ballads; and daughter, Denise Montana, (Goody Goody) known for her club hits "#1 Dee Jay and It Looks Like Love" treats us to her slightly jazzier side.

Philly Ear Kandy takes us back to Montana's 'Philly Soul' days with 'The Original Philadelphia Rhythm Section' which includes many of his session mates from both the MFSB and The Salsoul Orchestra. In an industry where music is transitory, Philly Soul has survived the test of time. These songs remain classic in the truest sense and will be enjoyed for generations to come. This is real Philly Ear Kandy for the soul!

A music fan from France

Great music, very rare Philly Sound from the 70s
A truly exceptional compilation of some very hard-to-find cuts from Philadelphia's heyday, including a (near 8 minutes long) full length version of "Magic's in the air" from singer Ronnie Walker, backed by the stellar musicians from MFSB and the Salsoul Orchestra with an incredible arrangement and fabulous instrumental parts. One of the very best Philly soul recordings. Any fan of the Philadelphia sound must own a copy of this CD.

feel young again
I've been a Ronnie Walker fan for 35 years. This brought back some awsome memories. The CD was flawless and the sounds amazing.

Derek Mckenna

Classic Philly sound
if you love the Philly sound then you're in for a treat,this album is brilliant, it has got some of the best examples of the lush philly orchestrations only Vince Montana jnr.could do during the 70's,also the sound quality of the CD is superb.
