The Philadelphia Sessions ('The Iceman Cometh', 'Ice On Ice' And More) (CD, Comp, Club).
The Ice Man Cometh" was a masterpiece that deserves to be on people's 10-best lists. Jerry continued to record for Mercury for several more years, became even more involved in producing, songwriting, and developing new talent, and, eventually, wound up on Philly Int'l himself. The albums are " The Ice Man Cometh " and " Ice On Ice " and they& rightly regarded as underground soul classics. The songs on these albums are the equal to any of the Jerry Butler classics that he recorded in the early Sixties for Vee-Jay records, but what marks them out as important recordings is the fact that Jerry Butler co-wrote the songs with the young, up and coming songwriting duo, of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, who also produced the albums
The Philadelphia Sessions. Both of the late-'60s albums on which Butler collaborated with the Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff production team, The Iceman Cometh and Ice on Ice, are combined on a single CD, with the addition of three other tracks from the era (which originally appeared on the LPs Mr. Dream Merchant and You and Me ) featuring the same Butler-Gamble-Huff combination. Thus it isolates, on one solid package, the short-lived time in which Butler, working with Gamble & Huff, successfully enhanced the early Philadelphia soul sound, and vice versa.
Butler was dubbed the "Iceman" by WDAS Philadelphia disc jockey, Georgie Woods, while performing in a Philadelphia theater. He co-wrote, with Otis Redding, the song "I've Been Loving You Too Long" in 1965 . Butler released two successful albums, The Ice Man Cometh (1968) and Ice On Ice (1970). The Ice Man Cometh garnered Butler three Grammy nominations.

Butler was the Iceman because he epitomized supercool. Rather than stick with gospel melodrama, he learned to cultivate a rough, talky melisma that evoked both an intimate murmur and a more intimate moan, which served to cut Gamble-Huff's lusher tendencies. Onthe transported "A Brand New Me," he achieved something approaching eternal life just by falling in love. Rolling Stone, May 31, 2007.
