Smoke Notes

Leon Huff and Kenneth Gamble are the legendary songwriting and production team behind many of soul music's most celebrated moments. They formed Philadelphia International in 1971, and soon had a formidable roster of talented acts including the O'Jays, Billy Paul and Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, with the label soon becoming one of the most successful of the seventies, promoting a distinctive sound that blended pop and soul with orchestral arrangements and social comment. Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes were to become the duos creative outlet, and in one Teddy Pendergrass, promoted from drummer to lead singer on the group's signing to the label, would become their muse. Released in 1972, this debut album was greeted with critical acclaim, and sold well in a market dominated by brash funk. The classics "Be For Real" and "Yesterday I Had The Blues", still sound fresh and exciting, while the more reflective, "I Miss You" and closing "Let It Be You" are crafted love songs of the highest order. It is however the magical "If You Don't Me By Know" (later butchered by Simply Red) that stands out the most - it was the groups biggest hit and remains one of the very finest pieces in all music, and is easily the pinnacle of Gamble & Huff's many achievements. Recommended for both soul and pop fans alike.
