2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the hugely influential Philadelphia International Records. To mark this, and following our reissue of some of the labels other acts such as the Three Degrees, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and the O’Jays, we are pleased to present an album from one of the most identifiable voices of the Philly Sound.
Billy Paul is a Grammy Award winning soul singer, most noted for his R&B #1 "Me & Mrs Jones”. EBONY WOMAN is a delightful Gamble & Huff produced 1970 album, which was later re-released in 1973. This BBR reissue sees the original artwork being used for a CD release for the first time.
This album features some amazing reimaginings of Simon & Garfunkel’s MRS. ROBINSON, Noel Harrison’s THE WINDMILLS OF YOUR MIND, Sly & The Family Stones EVERYDAY PEOPLE and Creedence Clearwater Revival’s PROUD MARY. LET’S FALL IN LOVE ALL OVER has been sampled by both Gang Starr and KRS-One.
