TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)" is a 1974 hit recording by MFSB (Mother, Father, Sister, Brother) featuring vocals by The Three Degrees. A classic example of the Philadelphia soul genre, it was written by Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff as the theme for the American musical television program Soul Train, which specialized in African American musical performers. The single was released on the Philadelphia International label.

Sony/Legacy's 2008 four-disc Love Train: The Ultimate Sound of Philadelphia isn't the first box set assembled on Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff's legendary Philadelphia International Records - most notably it follows the triple-disc Philly Sound: Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and the Story of Brotherly Love (1966-1976) by just over a decade - but it. is surely the best, covering more ground and painting a fuller picture of the Philly soul sound than any other similar compilation.

Philadelphia International's cultural cachet still hasn't completely caught up to the reverent immortalization of Motown or Stax; when writers blame a label for facilitating a crossover mentality and watering down soul for the whitebread masses, that kind of reputation can be hard to shake. But successive movements have found a lot of worth in this music and helped prove how well it stands up: Of the 71 songs on this collection, at least 25 of them found additional life in later decades as hip-hop and contemporary R&B samples. And for R&B aficionados of all ages, this set does an admirable job of reevaluating and reaffirming this sound as something more than just gussied-up soul: Behind that bow tie was a jugular vein pulsing with the beat of a new, aspirational inner-city America.
