RIBS: Gamble & Huff, part 2

Gamble & Huff, part 2

Trying to do justice to the catalog of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff in a single podcast mix is like trying to unring a bell, it just can’t be done.

Ever since their first hit song in 1967 “Expressway To Your Heart” by the blue-eyed soul group the Soul Survivors these prolific wrters, arrangers and producers have been cranking out songs and albums that have become the soundtrack to many of our lives.
