United Souls, in conjunction with Sony Legacy Recordings, is delighted to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Philadelphia International Records with the eagerly anticipated release of ‘Get On Board The Soul Train - The Sound Of Philadelphia International Records Volume 1’.

This is the first volume in a limited-edition series which covers the first eight studio albums released by the label from 1971-1973.  The series, in which all the albums are re-mastered from the original tapes, will map the history of Philadelphia International Records chronologically. Housed in a stylish 48 page slip cased book, the edition is strictly limited to 2500 copies. It also includes a numbered certificate of authenticity, an exclusive 12” single and a unique poster.  

The detailed 48-page hard cover book, including rare photographs was compiled and curated in association with P.I.R. artists, engineers & producers, with liner notes by Tony Cummings (Author of The Sound of Philadelphia) and a foreword by Ralph Tee.
