United Souls, a new Snapper Music imprint dedicated to showcasing a glittering array of leading heritage soul artists who have thrilled us over the years with their dazzling musicianship and boundless charisma.


A trio of Best Of albums from three of the most celebrated acts in soul history, The O’Jays, The Isley Brothers and Gladys Knight & The Pips launched our new label in late 2020.
 

 

Following on from this we have partnered up with Legacy Recordings, the catalogue division of Sony Music Entertainment, to release a series of 8 CD Book-Sets celebrating the 50th anniversary of Philadelphia International Records. The series, in which all albums are re-mastered from the original tapes and housed in a stylish 48 page slip-cased book will map the history of Philadelphia International Records chronologically. Each volume will also include a numbered certificate of authenticity, an exclusive 12” single and a unique poster.

The first volume Get On Board The Soul Train is out now with the second volume Satisfaction Guaranteed being released this November and more on the horizon for 2022.


“Gamble & Huff’s masterplan came to fruition”

“This is sophisticated and smooth Philly Soul from the genre’s most successful period… The box set handsomely presents remastered versions of classic music from 50 years ago” 
PopMatters

"Get on Board The Soul Train…is the rare box set that’s actually more than the sum of its parts…by making room for every LP, this particular set argues persuasively that Philly Soul was a collaboration among songwriters, arrangers, producers, session players, and singers."
