Going East - Expanded Edition - Billy Paul

Going East - Expanded Edition
Born and raised in North Philadelphia, PA, Grammy Award Winner, BILLY PAUL began singing at the age of 12 and sometimes performed on local radio shows. Drawing inspiration from his family’s collection of 78’s, BILLY PAUL would incorporate Jazz, R&B and Pop into his style, resulting in a unique sound that became synonymous with Philadelphia International Records.
Billy became known on the local circuit singing in clubs and later around college campuses all over the country which later led to him performing live with some of the biggest names in black music of the 60s and 70s including Dinah Washington, Miles Davis, Nina Simone and Roberta Flack to name a few, he also spent a brief spell standing in as a ‘Blue Note’ with Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes.
Originally signed to Kenny Gamble’s Gamble Records, Billy Paul later joined the legendary Philadelphia International Records, headed by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.
This legendary album was both Philadelphia International Records’ and Billy Paul’s debut release and was released in 1971. It kick-started a decade of dominance for the label and created a partnership that would last almost 20 years and produce a string of hits and awards for all involved.
BBR is very excited to bring you GOING EAST entirely re-mastered and repackaged complete with extensive liner notes featuring a brand new interview with BILLY PAUL and extended bonus content.
