Philadelphia soul, or Philly soul, was a form of soul music that came out of Philadelphia during the mid 1960s. It provided a smoother alternative to the deep soul of the 60s while maintaining the soul and emotion of popular R&B of the time. Philadelphia International Records was one of the most successful labels to capitalize on this new genre, and took it to the international stage with acts like the O'Jays and Teddy Pendergrass. Philly Soul is known for its incorporation of lush arrangements, and often tells very personal and emotional stories. Philly Soul, with its driving rhythms, later became the inspiration from which the disco craze of the 70s was born.
