The Soul Corner - Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes (feat. Teddy Pendergrass)

We wrote last week about the 1970's Philadelphia soul sound, Philadelphia International Records and the Gamble-Huff team, which got us thinking about that era. I've always been and remain far more of Memphis soul and Motown guy. But let's give Philly its due.

Here's perhaps my favorite single from there, "The Love I Lost", by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, with a truly spectacular lead vocal by the late Teddy Pendergrass, a Philly native son.
