Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes were one of the finest soul groups of the ’70s, based in Philadelphia, PA. Led by the great Harold Melvin, they formed as early as 1954, but struggled for many years until they finally broke through in 1972, much thanks to then-new lead singer Teddy Pendergrass, whose powerful, expressive baritone, alternating between singing and screaming, counts as one of the most distinctive voices in soul music.
