531. The Delfonics
The Philly Soul sound which has been ignored by the Hall thus far could find an entrant in the Delfonics whose smooth Soul was among the sleekest of the era. With a sensual tone that still had innocence around it, the Delfonics have been sampled regularly and as such have stayed a little bit more in the public consciousness than some of the other Philly Soul acts. They probably won’t be the second Philly Soul entry into the Hall, though it would not be a crime if they were.
