RIBS: Gamble & Huff, part 1

The Sound of Philadelphia

Berry Gordy is to Motown and Detroit what Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff are to Philadelphia International Records (PIR) and the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. Motown may have ruled Soul music scene in the 60’s but Philly Soul gave them a run for their money in the 70s and, in many minds, blew right past them.

This is part #1 of our look back at the house that Gamble and Huff built: “The Sound of Philadelphia”…
