The Delfonics

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, October 1972

PHILADELPHIA'S Delfonics are probably the innovators of the city's famed sound, dating back to their earliest Philly Groove hits such as 'La La Means I Love You', their first, and 'Didn't I Blow Your Mind This Time', which set a precedent for introducing a full classical style orchestra into our music. As the Delfonics grew in importance so, too, did their musical director, Thom Bell, until last year when the Delfonics and Thom parted company.
