The cusp seemed to be around 1972 - one moment we had perfect records by Al Green and the Staple Singers, the next there were drum machines and that swishing hi-hat of the Philadelphia records, and nothing was ever the same again. It was a surprise to find there was a real drummer at Sigma, so metronomic was his rhythm.
