Three Tenors Of Soul

Revirando o baú, encontrei uma raridade, não muito velha, mas rara pelo encontro, na minha opinião as 3 vozes mais marcantes da famosa época da Motown, do lado da Filadelfia é claro.

Sente o clima e entre nesta onda dos “Falsetes”, um melhor que o outro.
Simplesmente um disco sensacional, indispensável !


All The Way From Philadelphia (2007)

Russell Thompkins Jr. (The Stylistics)

Will Hart (Delfins)
Ted “Wizard” Mills (Blue Magic)

There can be no argument that in the early 70s the center of the soul music universe was Philadelphia.  Combining progressive arrangements with stellar songwriting and a seemingly endless supply of quality vocal groups, the City of Brotherly Love captured what Motown accomplished in Detroit in the 60s and took it to the next level.  And among the great Philly vocal groups, three of the biggest were the falsetto-led balladeers the Stylistics, Blue Magic and the Delfonics.  Last year, three decades after those groups hit their peak, legendary guitarist/producer/songwriter Bobbi Eli conceived the idea of bringing together the three tenor lead singers of those acts for an album celebrating the art of falsetto soul, much as opera was celebrated in the 90s by its own Three Tenors.  The result of this concept recording session is the new All the Way From Philadelphia, on Shanachie Records.

The pedigree of Russell Thompkins, Jr. (the Stylistics), Will Hart (the Delfonics) and Ted "Wizard" Mills (Blue Magic) is beyond question.  Their vocal work on such classic soul ballads as "You Are Everything," "(Didn’t I) Blow Your Mind" and "Sideshow" established them as among the greatest soul singers of their generation.  So the burden on Eli was to record an album worthy of both the concept and the singers, and he has, in part, succeeded.  In deciding to fill the album with faithful "covers" of hit songs from the 70s and 80s, he’s created a disc that is certainly enjoyable, if safe.  But, perhaps unwittingly, it is the addition of two non-hits on the album that hints at the heights that this disc could have reached and leaves the listener wanting, if not a do-over, at least another shot for the 3 Tenors of Soul to make an album of completely new material that serves as a satisfying bookend to their substantial recording legacy.
