The Philly soul story spread a wider net than most folks might realize. The Volcanos, for instance, never soared to the star status of the Spinners or the Stylistics, but their 1965 single “Storm Warning,” one of Gamble & Huff’s earliest productions, is a dizzying downpour of sweet-but-stomping soul. One of the city’s R&B pioneers, Dee Dee Sharp, showed that Philly soul fodder can come from anywhere, by turning U.K. art-poppers 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love” into a lush, laid-back aural aphrodisiac. And even Stax sensation Wilson Pickett took a turn on Gamble & Huff’s love train, cutting 1970’s In Philadelphia with the dynamic duo, and turning out the fiercely funky “Get Me Back on Time, Engine Number 9.”
