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".
