About Us

ABOUT US Ben-Lee's Philadelphia Story You will hear on this site some of the best -R&B/Northern/Soul- tracks ever produced in Philadelphia in the 60's-70's. In the 1960s, producer-songwriters Frank Bendinelli and Leroy Lovett (arranger) formed a production company, Ben-Lee Music, that generated tracks that were leased to other labels (Mercury-Kapp/Congress-RCA-Red Bird-Cameo) as well as their own labels- Benn-X and Sonata Records. The Ben-Lee umbrella produced some outstanding Philadelphia soul throughout the decade. Many of the songs were written by a young Leon Huff of later Philadelphia International Fame. On most of the sides you can hear the strong-funky soul piano being laid down by Leon which helped solidify the tracks.
