Synopsis

Amazon.com
"Let's take a shower together." Between Al Green and Luther Vandross, and way before South Park's Chef, came Teddy Pendergrass, the king of the soul seduction masters for a half-decade after his mid-'70s departure from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. Greatest Hits gives the solo Pendergrass his due with 15 signature rubdowns. The greatest of the great, 1980's "Love T.K.O.," ends the album's survey of TP's Philadelphia International years; two songs cut for Elektra after the singer's paralyzing 1982 auto accident round it out. If you haven't heard these enticing tunes or thought about the man they called Teddy Bear in years, this is a reminder you need. --Rickey Wright

CD Reviews

One of the best
Glenn Nippert | 11/21/1999

"I've heard so many great singers in my time (I'm 35) and if I were to list my top ten best singers of all time, Teddy would be up there with the best. This guy is one of the few men that could get away with singing love songs without looking silly! :-) "Come Go With Me", "Close The Door", "Love TKO", and "Can't We Try", to me, are 4 of the best love songs ever created! Even if I were to only get these four songs in this album, I'd be satisfied. It's really worth it."

"This is one of the very best greatest hits albums ever. I really just got into Teddy P. two years ago when I heard "Turn off The Lights" on an almost daily basis on the local old school R&B station here in Atlanta. It was like the song was following me around. So, I bought this album for that song alone and hoped there might be something else on here that I would like. Every day another song from here would start sticking in my head, until finally I was in love with the whole album. I can't believe I never got into Teddy before, or that I never realised he was the lead singer of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes. I've heard that he is touring again despite being in a wheelchair from a crippling car accident back in the early 80's and that his magical voice is as powerful as ever. I definately want to see this legend in concert and hear these classic songs live. Guys like Keith Sweat had to whine and beg the ladies for some lovin', but not Teddy P. He demanded to be rubbed down in some burning hot oils, baby, and he would do the same for you. Now turn off the damn lights and let's get it on!!!"

"Teddy Pendergrass is the last great soul man. If Luther Vandross is too smooth for you, and today's soul singers too retro, then that description seems apt. Coming on the heels of Otis Redding and Al Green, Teddy's solo career started strong and remained steady until his auto accident. His Elektra years aren't as strong (and are only represented by 2 tracks, here)but the Philly solo days were full of classics. This is Teddy P. for beginners. But don't miss his albums: start with TP and Life Is A Song Worth Singing."
