Jerry Butler – (I’m Just Thinking About) Cooling Out Philadelphia Int 1978.

First up from me this week a light and breezy piece of Philly, co-written by Jerry with legendary producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff and from his debut album for PIR ‘Nothing Says I Love You, Like, I Love You’. Musically, he is probably best known as a member of the Impressions and since 1985 has been involved in Politics.

Ecstacy, Passion & Pain – Good Things Don’t Last Forever Roulette 1974.
Yet another Philly groove, this time written by Bunny Sigler, Allan Felder and Norman Harris, with Bobby Martin doing the production. The band was founded by Barbara Roy in New York in 1972, she being the only permanent member until they disbanded in 1977. In the ‘80s, the name would be revived.

Pat Lundy – Work Song Pyramid 1977.
Distributed by Roulette Records (see above) this track was originally penned as a Jazz tune (now a Jazz standard) and performed by Nat Adderly. The single received a lot of support and was a Disco hit in the US and can also be found on her album ‘Loving You – The Funkiest Feeling’ one of three she recorded for the Pyramid label.
