Continuing our programme to re-issue the classic late 70s/early 80s
albums recorded for Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff’s Philadelphia
International label. All the releases feature packaging containing expert
annotation and photos.
Here we present Teddy’s double LP live album, recorded in Philadelphia in 1978 and Los Angeles in 1979, which also features an exclusive 5 minute interview, and three
studio cuts (two of which charted as singles). The live sets include his
own biggest numbers performed before an adoring (predominantly)
female crowd, as well as a medley of his hits with Harold Melvin & The
Blue Notes. The LA sequence arranges his "bedroom" numbers in exactly
the right order!
"TP", issued in 1980, was Teddy’s fourth studio album and his fourth
million seller. It contains two big hit singles, "Can’t We Try", and the
signature song, "Love TKO", as well as songs by Womack & Womack and
Ashford & Simpson.
