THE ONLY DVD OF TEDDY PENDERGRASS IN HIS ‘70s PRIME!
Demon Vision proudly presents the September 2006 release of Teddy Pendergrass – Live In ’79.
In the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Teddy Pendergrass was an unstoppable musical force. Having come to fame as lead singer for the hit Philly soul act Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes who had a huge hit with the original disco version of Don’t Leave Me This Way, he launched a hugely successful solo career and became the first African-American artist to earn five platinum records in a row in the USA. A 1982 car accident left him confined to a wheelchair, but he re-entered the studio in 1984 and continued to rack up hits and sales throughout the next two decades.
For all of Teddy’s record sales and chart success, it’s when he’s on stage that he’s truly in his element. For years, fans have implored him to increase his touring schedule and release some of his classic concerts on DVD. Teddy! Live In ’79, the first DVD to feature Teddy in his early prime, captures the magic and the heat of the mighty soul man’s legendary live performances.
