Description

Peoples Choice, despite high acclaim within Philly Soul, R&B, Funk and Disco circles are among the most underrated of the soul groups that found their home at P.I.R. Unlike many of the acts championed by Gamble & Leon Huff Peoples Choice were a self-contained outfit performing on the Philly scene since the 60s. Led by Frankie Brunson the group was formed out of R&B act The Fashions. ANY WAY YOU WANNA... THE PEOPLES CHOICE ANTHOLOGY (1971-1981) covers the groups greatest successes. Signing to Phil-L.A. Of Soul in 1971, they enjoyed R&B hit singles including I Likes To Do It, and Magic before signing with Philadelphia Internationals TSOP imprint in 1974. The rare TSOP single Love Shop arrived in 1974. Another single, Party Is A Groovy Thing brought the group another R&B hit that same year but things really took off the following year. Do It Anyway You Wanna debuted in 1975 becoming an instant classic, appealing to Soul, Disco and Pop fan alike. The single topped the R&B charts and made #11 on the Hot 100. Later in the year it gave the band their first UK hit when it peaked at #36 and even made the #6 in Belgium and #2 in the Netherlands. The smooth but Funky Nursery Rhymes made a formidable follow-up and made #22 on the R&B chart.
