DESCRIPTION

TRACK LIST

For almost 60 years Earl Young has been the heartbeat and pulsebeat of soul music in Philadelphia – the drummer on literally hundreds of sessions dating back as far as 1964, and the man who has propelled so much of the City Of Brotherly Love’s hit list in that time.
As well as being the drummer for the band that eventually became MFSB Mk. 1 and, subsequently, the Salsoul Orchestra, Earl has also led the Trammps since they came together as the Volcanoes in the mid-60s, and is still leading the group in 2023 (and playing several dozen shows a year) as their bass vocalist.
It’s fair to say that the classic 70s Sound Of Philadelphia as soul fans know it could not have existed without Earl Young behind the drum-kit on so many defining sessions. His ‘four on the floor’ style essentially shaped the sound of dance music as it evolved through the middle of the decade and particularly during the peak years of Disco. Earl’s presence is immediately recognisable on just about every session he participated in, whatever the tempo of the recording.
