M.F.S.B. - Universal Love.
Famed for recording the main theme to 70s music television staple, Soul Train, as well as providing the backbone to Philadelphia International’s era-defining Philly Sound through other label mates’ respective releases, instrumental group MFSB (Mother Father Sister Brother) also maintained a steady output of their own throughout the decade. With no less than 30 members accounted for within their back catalogue, MFSB’s very name gives credence to the grassroots appeal of the Philly Sound which established the framework in which disco would emerge and once again redefine R&B in the 70s.
MFSB’s third LP UNIVERSAL LOVE (US #44/R&B #2), released in 1975 on Philadelphia International, continued to establish MFSB as a mainstay within the Philly Sound era with the help of pioneers Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff and other regular fixtures within Philadelphia International’s creative team.
Amongst the Gamble and Huff co-writes, the charting ‘Sexy’ (US #42/R&B #2/DANCE #1) remains a standout slice of seminal early-disco as well as furthering the big band funk intonations within Philly Soul as well as ‘T.L.C. (Tender Lovin’ Care)’ (US R&B #54/DANCE #4), ‘Let’s Go Disco’ and the Nite-Liters cover ‘K-Jee’ (later featured in Saturday Night Fever). Closer ‘My Mood’ (the third and last Gamble and Huff co-write on the record) rounds out the LP scaling back on the preceding party grooves and pausing for reflection in a lush profusion of smooth soul.
BBR are proud to have remastered and repackaged UNIVERSAL LOVE for the first time ever on CD with extensive liner notes adding to the marvellous legacy of MFSB.
