Philly Disco Groove of the Day/Jean Carn/”Was That All It Was”

If you’re looking for a Philly disco groove that will truly help you escape the winter doldrums, lace up those local music skates to Jean Carn’s “Was That All It Was.” Loaded with heart, emotion and that one-of-a-kind Philly soul disco sound, Ms. Carn’s whirling groove took over dance floors and charts in 1980, only helping further establish her as a true Philly music artist.

One of Philadelphia International Records most prominent disco divas, Ms. Jean racked up a buffet of hit records and singles during her decade with the label, including the classics, “If You Wanna Go Back,” “Closer Than Close,” and the aptly titled, “There’s a Shortage of Good Men.” Isn’t that the truth.

Also, if you’re wondering where you might have heard “Was That It All Was” before, it’s because it was featured in Lee Daniels’ Oscar winning film, Precious.

You know, because Mo’Nique and disco absolutely go hand-in-hand.
