The Delfonics Return by Delfonics

Although released in 2016, “The Delfonics Return” has that classic Delfonics sound and flavor you have known and loved for so many years, and it does not disappoint.  Opening with the stirringly beautiful and inspirational “The Way Things Are,” this album offers song after song emanating that classic, warm, and gorgeous Philadelphia-based R&B/Soul sound which has become so interwoven with American music and initially put The Delfonics on the map back in the late 1960’s as well as propelled them to international stardom.  In fact, many of these songs, including “(Sing A) Clean Song,” “The Same Thing That Makes You Laugh,” “If the World Runs Out of Love,” and “The World’s in Need of Love” not only bring back the classic Philadelphia Soul sound but carry a strong message of love, peace, and social consciousness – ideals which have great importance and significance no matter the time.  “The Delfonics Return” is an album which not only marks the official return of Philadelphia’s beloved Delfonics, but is one in which you will find yourself listening to the songs over and over again.
