The CD is presented by songwriter/record producer, John Madara, through That Philly Sound, which is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the 50's and 60's.  Many of the songs on the CD were written and produced by John Madara and partner, Dave White.  They also wrote and produced such timeless classics as AT THE HOP (Danny and The Juniors), ROCK AND ROLL IS HERE TO STAY (Danny and The Juniors, written by Dave White and produced by John Madara), THE FLY (Chubby Checker), 123 (Len Barry, who co-wrote the song with Madara & White) and YOU DON'T OWN ME (Lesley Gore, produced by Quincy Jones).  These and countless other hit records by Madara & White helped to make up "The Sound of Philadelphia."


In October of 2013, Madara & White were inducted into the Philadelphia Walk of Fame by The Philadelphia Music Alliance.  "You Don't Own Me" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in October of 2017.
