More Info:

Three CDs. Signed to Philadelphia International Records (PIR), The Three Degrees made a double debut in the UK singles chart in April 1974 with their own "Year Of Decision", and "TSOP (The Sound Of Philadelphia"), on which they were co-credited with MFSB. Both songs were written by PIR supremos Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, who also wrote the trio's next single, the chart-topping "When Will I See You Again". After several more hits on PIR, including "Take Good Care Of Yourself", they signed to the Ariola label. With the disco mastermind Giorgio Moroder in the producer's chair, they had a further run of Top 10 hits in 1978 and 1979 with "Giving Up, Giving In", "Woman In Love", "The Runner" and "My Simple Heart". This 40-track set includes all the trio's 1970s UK hits and more. CD3 contains six extended versions of their Giorgio Moroder hits, as well as four live tracks from their PIR days, covering hits by Dan Hartman, Elton John, Stevie Wonder and The O'Jays.
