Album Notes
"BACK IN PHILADELPHIA" is both lyrically contemporary and musically unique. “Reminds me of an Electronic Dylan.' People who are interested in early Billy Joel and Elton John should consider this download.

“Lots of Greed” speaks about today’s political and economic climate. “Best is Yet to Come” seeks to spark an optimistic outlook on the recovery from “The Great Recession.” “The Day Sesame Street Died” is the most talked-about track adding humor and nostalgia to the collection. “I Google Myself” take a unique look into the life of someone who is getting a bit “Out-Of-Hand” with the habit. The title track “Back In Philadelphia” features the debut of Philly’s first Electronic-String-Band.

The album includes a cover of “Wake Up Everybody” made famous by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. The original recording spent 2 weeks on the Hot Soul Singles chart in early 1976 and featured lead vocals by Philadelphia’s much-loved native… the late… great… Teddy Pendergrass. It also enjoyed success on the pop charts, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 34 Easy Listening, and number 23 in the UK Singles Chart. The song was performed on Soul Train, November 22, 1975. The original recording was produced by McFadden & Whitehead who created the sound that made Philadelphia International Records an international household-name.

Back in Philadelphia is a creative collection of music. This album offers both meaningful lyrics and an original sound.
