Teddy Pendergrass, one of the finest male R&B vocalists ever. This was his first solo album after he left Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. To me it's still his best. Produced by Philly Soul's cream of the crop Gamble and Huff and McFadden and Whitehead this is soul at its finest. Tightest arrangements, the best male voice at his peak, great melodies and good and intense lyrics. This was made to dance, to have fun, sure, but if you'd listen to what Teddy's saying you'll realize the depth of the message. Musicians? Oh woow! Pushy Drums and Percussion Keith Benson, Karl Chambers, Charles Collins and Larry Washington; The Best of Horns MFSB; Keys Ron Kersey, Dexter Wansel, Victor Carstarphen; Guitar Roland Chambers, Dennis Harris; Bass Michael "Sugar Bear" Foreman, James Williams The follow ups Life is a Song Worth Singing, Teddy and TP were more successful but this one is unique - his freshest if you ask me. After surviving a horrible car accident Teddy returned to the scene singing from a wheelchair. He's still Teddy but this first one will probably forever stay unreached.
