      William DeVaughn’s 1974 masterpiece Be Thankful For What You Got is one of the most widely recognised soul releases of the twentieth century, a seminal session recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia with a who’s who of superb musical talent – from backing band MFSB to John Davis (of Monster Disco Orchestra fame).

      Featuring musicians from MFSB (Larry Washington – percussion, Norman Harris – Guitar, Bobby Eli – Guitar, Vince Montana – Vibraphone, among others) and recorded at the Philadelphia International Records main studio Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, P.A., the music contains that luxurious Philly sound signature; sweeping strings, galloping percussion and tight, soulful arrangements combine to beautiful extents. Blended with DeVaughn’s socially conscious and semi-religious lyrical content, the music culminates in something very special; soulful, heartfelt and funky, underscored by a deep and effortless pocket and an enduring message of positivity and resilience in the face of social and financial hardships.

      50th anniversary edition volume, limited to 1,000 copies featuring a fresh liner from Will Fox, and packaged in a newly printed sleeve with an obi and printed inner. Brought to you, with 'soul', from Demon Music Group.
