Peoples Choice were formed by Frank Brunson in Philadelphia during the early 70's.

Prior to the later identity, the band recorded one side, during the sixties entitled 'Savin My Love For You', which was big on the Northern Soul Scene.

Signing to Philadelphia International Records (PIR), they worked with writer / producer Leon Huff (without Kenny Gamble on this occasion) on 'Do It Any Way You Wanna' (UK Top 40,1975), a Philadelphia International dance classic.
