360 Degrees Of Billy Paul - Billy Paul

360 Degrees Of Billy Paul
2012 marks the 40th anniversary of the hugely influential Philadelphia International Records. To mark this, and following our reissue of some of the labels other acts such as the Three Degrees, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and the O’Jays. We are pleased to present another album from one of the most identifiable voices of the Philly Sound.

Billy Paul is a Grammy Award winning soul singer, most noted for his R&B and Pop #1 ME AND MRS. JONES from this 1972 album 360 DEGREES OF BILLY PAUL.

360 DEGREES OF BILLY PAUL has proved to be prime material for producers looking for great samples. It has been used by the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, M.O.P., Last Emperor, Scarface and The Game.

AM I BLACK ENOUGH FOR YOU was the second single release and peaked at #29 in the R&B charts. It has gone on to become a key song in the Philadelphia International catalogue.

Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases, with bonus tracks, 360 DEGREES OF BILLY PAUL is a must for all Soul and Funk fans out there!

Press:-


"This 1972 set is the first Billy Paul album that most people heard, it being the one that produced Me & Mrs Jones as lead single. It's amongst his best too, for it also includes the superb mid-tempo Philly roller Brown Baby, a tribute the kids who took part in the civil rights marches, the eight-minute epic I'm Just A Prioner,a Gamble-Sigler-Hurtt song that Billy confesses reminded him of a stretch behind bars his step-dad did, and the funky follow-up to Mrs Jones, Am I Black Enough For You?". 3/5* Chris Wells (Echoes - September 2012)

"Now digitally remastered for simultaneous release on BIG BREAK RECORDS, two albums recorded by Billy Paul are enjoyable but very different." - Alan Jones, Music Week
