They are back - ‘Double Exposure’. A brand new song with thought provoking lyrics and great harmonies, as this fresh Philly production will attest. Times have changed and the group are vocal about today’s recession. Which recession, there is more than one?
'Soul Recession’ is a brand new recording by legendary Philly group ‘Double Exposure’ renowned for their terrific harmonies and celebrated releases on Salsoul Records. Including disco’s very first official 12” record ‘Ten Percent’, they also cut songs like ‘My love is free’ and ‘Everyman’ which remain popular today by still being played in clubs and on radio stations around the world.
‘Double Exposure’ are James Williams, Joseph Harris, Charles Whittington and Leonard ‘Butch’ Davis who were originally called ‘United Image’ back in the 1960’s. They have been singing together since junior high school and have remained friends ever since. The opportunity to record ‘Soul Recession’ was presented to them recently by legendary Philly producer, writer and musician, Bobby Eli; their cumulative magic can be heard on these terrific new productions.
Backed by some of Philadelphia’s finest and renowned session musicians including some original members of MFSB like Earl Young, Bobby Eli, Dennis Harris, Jimmie Williams, T Conway, and Rikki Hicks, the track scrutinises today’s recession implications with a soulful upbeat performance just made for the dance floor. The rhythm, music and vocals were all recorded at Bobby Eli’s legendary ‘Studio E’ in Philadelphia, where writer/producer Bobby Eli, writers Chiquita Green and Carl Dixon, the musicians and ‘Double Exposure’ bounced ideas off one another to create this classic piece of new Philly soul.
In addition to the Bobby Eli mix of ‘Soul Recession’, we include two very special mixes created by music industry gurus John Morales and Tom Moulton. Their pedigrees go back many years as both pioneered early mixing techniques for dance records to extraordinary levels and are still extremely creative with their productions today. Their exceptional contribution to dance music is historic and we can now share and enjoy their enthusiasm again with these distinctive renditions of ‘Soul Recession’. Also included is the ‘announcer’ version of the song featuring Philly personality Jerry Wells who introduces the track with a bespoke news statement just for fun! Being an early incarnation of the song and created the same week the rhythm tracks were recorded in the studio, we felt its inclusion on this selection important. In addition, check out the rather unusual and clever “Ali Baba’s ‘Watcha Gonna Do’ mix”.
We would also like to introduce our very special guest Chiquita Green who performs as the featured artist on bonus track ‘There I go falling in love again’. Internationally acclaimed Chiquita has travelled the world as a professional vocalist and songwriter for over twenty years and has worked on numerous projects with the likes of Patti LaBelle, Deniece Williams, Russell Thompkins Jr, Ted Mills, Jean Carne and Stevie Wonder. Her vocal production skills and expertise are clearly audible on all the recordings celebrated here today.
So take heed, listen please; ‘Double Exposure’ are back!

Bandtraxs are delighted to release this version of ‘You ain’t changed’ by The Delgonives, co written by UK performer Johnny Boy Pryers and established UK songwriter Carl Dixon. It follows on from the earlier 2018 release by Johnny Boy also on Bandtraxs Records. This collaboration resulted in a truly authentic sounding blue-eyed soul masterpiece with elements of 60s Detroit soul and Carolina Beach Music. Carl and Johnny had communicated via email since 2007 with a view to someday working together and after meeting face to face at a Butlin’s soul weekender a few years ago, they decided to come up with a song idea and pursue a vocal for it. What transpired after scratch vocals were laid down by Carl for Johnny’s version, it was realised this could easily be a contender for a future ‘The Delgonives’ release also as it fits their style perfectly. Cleverly using the same backing tracks, a number of mixes now exploit the terrific melody and groove of this song and give it further appeal. There are also six instrumental versions to enjoy also.
