Love Train – Best Of The O'Jays

CD (Item 491208) Legacy, Early 70s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 11

10 tracks from one of the biggest vocal groups of the 70s! The O'Jays had been knocking around other labels for some time during the mid and late 60s, but when they hooked up with the Gamble & Huff team at the burgeoning Philadelphia International label, things really started taking off! Gamble & Huff's strident approach to soul provided the perfect foil for the band's soaring harmonies – and the result was a full-on sound that sounded great both in the clubs, or blaring out of a small AM radio. Ten tracks aren't nearly enough to give you the full picture of the group's genius – but you'll get a pretty good start with classics like "Love Train", "Back Stabbers", "Livin For The Weekend", "I Love Music", "Survival", "For The Love Of Money", and "Put Your Hands Together".

One of our favorite all-time vocal groups – even if they did sell a bazillion records during the 70s! Of course, we have to give the lion's share of the credit to Teddy Pendergrass – whose darkly warm vocals pushed most of the group's tracks over the top, and forever set a new standard ... CD

Elektra/Collectors Choice, 1990. Used
A big one for Norman Cook – caught here in his post-Housemartins, pre-Fatboy Slim years – working here in a playful blend of beats and samples that really point the way towards his later chart fame to come! The tracks here have a simple elegance that might have sounded dated a few ... CD
