“Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)” gained The Delfonics a Grammy Award for best R&B performance at the 13th Annual Grammy Awards. The Philadelphia soul group has given us great classics like “La-La (Means I Love You),” “Ready or Not Here I Come (Can’t Hide from Love),” “I’m Sorry,” and many others.
Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes
Providing the sounds of Philadelphia soul, Doo-Wop, Disco, and R&B, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes was founded in the 50s under another name, The Charlemagnes. In 1954, they made the switch to “The Blue Notes” with lead singer Harold Melvin. Now, they tour as the “Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes.”
Detroit Soul Band, Enchantment had success in the mid-70s with their best-known songs of “Gloria,” “It’s You That I Need,” “Sunshine,” and more. They released six albums over the 70s and 80s timeframe.
The soul group from Philadelphia gave us one of the most popular songs of the 70s, “Sideshow,” reaching number 1 status on the US R&B charts. It also went to number 8 on the Pop charts as well. Blue Magic also gave us “Stop to Start,” “Spell,” “Three Ring Circus,” and more.
