"What a super deal - so many hits on one disc and at such a great price. Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes were pumping - beautiful ballads and hot dance hits. Loved them all...but my personal favorites are "Yesterday I Had the Blues", "If you Don't Know me by now", and "Tell the World How I Feel About 'Cha Baby". Teddy Pendergrass truly put his mark on those tunes. I'm prone to playing only my favorite tracks on a disc - but you can play this cd all the way through! Mercy!"
Love those "Part 1" songs!

"I used to have a different Harold Melvin collection, but listening to them sing "Sorry I lost it" for about 5 minutes on "The Love I Lost" just got to me. I know some people need that, but I'm fine with these radio edits. Heck, I grew up listening to those versions, so I've always been used to them.
Anyway, no one makes music like this anymore. No one. Ah, back then they used real orchestras for strings. And Teddy's just working it to death! My fave vocal of his is on "Bad Luck", social commentary with a beat! Great dance music, not disco, but dance music (yeah, there's a difference!).
Superb lyrics and music - lifeless sound

"No doubt, these lyrics and music are superb; after all, this is why I purchased this CD. What wonderful memories! But, this particular CD's sound quality is lifeless and dimensionless. I didn't intend for this CD to be simply background music, as I like to become "drawn into" the recording, but that's all I can do. What a disappointment!
I have ordered many wonderful CD's from Amazon that sound great, but felt compelled to write and warn others.
I give this CD at 5-star rating for its lyrics and music, but only a 1-star for it's sound quality. With engineering like this, its no wonder so many would rather use free music-sharing services on the Internet rather than make a purchase."
