Total Soul Classics - Wake Up Everybody (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Nov 1975
Label: Philadelphia International Records/Epic/Legacy
Like most acts on the Philadelphia International label, Philly soul group Harold and the Blue Notes, anchored by Teddy Pendergrass' booming baritone, were exceptionally talented surrogates for the left-leaning political agenda of producer/songwriting team Gamble and Huff. "Wake Up Everybody" and "To Be Free To Be Who We Are" are stirring, sex-infused bombs of self-righteousness.
