The Delfonics

Redirected from The Delphonics

The Delfonics were the quintessential Philadelphia soul[?] group. William[?] and Wilbert Hart[?], and Randy Cain[?] formed the group in high school in the early 1960s. Soon, they became known throughout the Philadelphia area, finally releasing perhaps their most well-remembered song, "La La Means I Love You", in 1968.

Philadelphia soul was smoother than traditional soul, strongly influenced by Phil Spector's wall of sound production. In the mid-1970s, the Delfonics career declined sharply and the band was effectively over by 1975. Their music enjoyed a mild renaissance in the mid-1990s when Quentin Tarantino used "La La Means I Love You" and "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" in a pivotal role in the film Jackie Brown[?].
