The Philly Sound is back! Earl Young & Darryl Grant -The Power Of Love - Out Now On DSG

Earl Young & Darryl Grant - The Power Of Love -Part One Nigel Lowis mix along with Part 2 Connoisseurs remixes are now released and are climbing the UK Soul & download charts( #2 in Amazon).   

Lovers of 70s soul music certainly remember Earl Young, founder of The Trammps and the drummer credited by many as the creator of the disco beat. And we were all fans of Spectrum/ Fat Larry's Band  singer Darryl Grant.

Well, these two legends have come together for a new song with an old school groove. With songwriters/producers McKinley Jackson and Mervin and Melvin Steals behind it, the duo have created a terrific new cut called “Don’t Underestimate The Power of Love.” What’s more, they’ve been helped by an A-List band, featuring bassist Jimmie Williams, pianist Alfie Pollitt, guitarist Robert “Wawa” Legrand, percussionist, Pablo Batista, drummer Lawrence Bowens, guitarist Randy Lynch, and McKinley Jackson’s fabulous Detroit Horn Section.

Salsoul meets the Sound Of  Philadelphia in this SalPhilly remix created by Nigel Lowis.
From the composer of, Could It Be I'm Falling In Love (Spinners) 
It's not only HOT, but also pleasing to the ear and very tastefully done!!! If my dear friend Norman Harris were still alive, I'm sure that he would be extremely proud to hear how well Nigel Lowis has captured the "purity" and "essence" of the powerful sound that Norman, Ronnie Baker, and Earl Young created on the floor of the city of Philadelphia's Sigma Sound's Studio A back in the 1970's.Melvin Steal composer of the song......
