Avis sur l’album
When Legacy put together The Essential Teddy Pendergrass for release in 2007, four years had come and gone since the Philly soul singer's hits had last been anthologized in double-disc form. So, is this really all that necessary? Yes, it is completely necessary. Unlike 2003's Anthology, released through The Right Stuff, The Essential Teddy Pendergrass does not cut off just prior to TP's mid-'80s switch from Philadelphia International to Elektra/Asylum. This means that later R&B number ones "Joy" and "It Should've Been You," along with the 1984 Whitney Houston duet "Hold Me" (number five), are all included — but this is at the expense of some of TP's lower-charting singles from the earlier years, which are squeezed out. Regardless, due its greater breadth, it is the more attractive set of the two. William C. Rhoden, who was a jazz critic and editor at Ebony prior to becoming a well-known sports columnist and author, penned the liner notes.
Avis des utilisateurs
Anyone who knows Teddy Pendergrass or his early work with Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes knows how hard it was to get all of his best songs in any format. This is the first time I have seen an album that contains every notable hit from both eras, and then some. The pick-up song 'Come Go With Me', to the bedroom ballad 'Turn Off The Lights' make this album a nostalgic find. But if you enjoy his upbeat, disco successes like; 'Bad Luck', 'the Love I Lost', and the iconic 'Get Up, Get Down, Get Funky, Get Loose', then you won't regret this purchase.

This is the original master of vocal seduction. Close the Door, Turn Off the Lights, and Come Go With Me will get the job done, but then you have bluesier balads like Love TKO and the Bluenotes' classic, If You Don't Know Me By Now, and the upbeat Bad Luck and Get Up, Get Down. Can't go wrong for any old-school soul/funk-loving music fan. Buy it for your mom or for your girlfriend.
