|Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes Wake Up Everybody Limited 180gram Audiophile LP
Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes unfortunately aren't as well known as they should be.
As one of the founders of Philadelphia soul Harold Melvin & The Bluetones played & recorded for a few decades, but the musical highlight of their career must have been when Teddy Pendergrass joined ranks between 1972 and 1975.
'Wake Up Everybody' from 1975 is the last album on which you can hear his sultry vocals before he went solo, and it is filled with profound, uplifting & thought provoking songs that in some cases are better known for their covers than for their originals.
"Wake Up Everybody" was most recently a radio hit for John Legend & The Roots, and "Don't Leave Me This Way" is a disco classic that was made even bigger by Thelma Houston.
This 180 gram audiophile vinyl version – the first vinyl reissue since 1975 – has a special bonus track: an 11-minute remix of "Don't Leave Me This Way" by inventor of the remix and the 12": Tom Moulton!
