Pair of #1 Sound Of Philadelphia Classics Also Among Hundreds of TSOP Hits

More than a generation since The Sound of Philadelphia was a chart-topping, worldwide hit-making machine, legendary producer-songwriters and TSOP architects Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff have another #1 smash hit on their hands.

But this time it’s in the movies — again.

A pair of Gamble & Huff #1 disco classics is prominently featured in Ridley Scott’s The Martian, the blockbuster space epic starring Matt Damon, which has been #1 at the box office for three consecutive weeks.

The “Songs from the Martian” soundtrack, on Columbia Records, features a pair of Sound of Philadelphia #1 Billboard pop and R&B classics:“Don’t Leave Me This Way,” by Thelma Houston; and TSOP’s signature anthem, “Love Train” a double chart-topper for The O’Jays. Both are among the hundreds of TSOP recordings available for streaming through the new “GAMBLE HUFF MUSIC” App.

Gamble & Huff are the only songwriters with more than one contribution to the ’70s-laden album, comprised of nine of the greatest classics from disco’s golden era. The music evinces the plight of the film’s protagonist, Astronaut Mark Watney, played by Damon, who during a manned mission to Mars set in the not-too-distant future is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet with only meager supplies — and limited distractions — including a playlist of ’70’s disco music left behind by Commander Lewis played by Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Interstellar). “Love Train” helps the movie end on a joyful note as the camera pans to the many people who pitched in to rescue Mark (Damon) from Mars.

Gamble & Huff’s musical connection with Mars actually dates back to 1976, when Dexter Wansel went for a sci-fi theme on his debut album,Life on Mars. Not only has the title track, a haunting piece of space funk, been sampled at least 15 times over the past 20 years alone, but it also has been used in recent years as wakeup music for the NASA team overseeing one of the Mars Rover missions.

Whether on Earth or in outer space, the “GAMBLE HUFF MUSIC” App allows listeners to carry the music of Gamble & Huff and The Sound of Philadelphia wherever they go! Available for iPhone and Android, the “GAMBLE HUFF MUSIC” App offers users at any time to hear the timeless music, as well as rare interviews, with artists like The O’Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, Patti LaBelle, Evelyn Champagne King and many more.
