Philadelphia has been an incubator for all kinds of great music, and in the ‘70s and ‘80s funk, soul, pop and Latin styles combined to create some phenomenally great, danceable and far-reaching music. Mark Rubel will interview Philadelphia engineer Dirk Devlin (and possibly some other special guests) about the stories, techniques, and style of recording, plus an examination of an 11-minute multi-track recording.

Songs we’re covering include:
Back Stabbers – O’Jays
Me and Mrs. Jones – Billy Paul
Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now – McFadden & Whitehead
For the Love of Money – O’Jays
You’ll Never Find Another Love Like Mine – Lou Rawls
