I enjoyed the years Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes made hits, but when Teddy Pendergrass stood out continuously, I began to wonder, if it wasn’t for his preacher tone like singing voice that appealed to me and many other fans, the Bluenotes never wouldn’t of made those past good hits. When Teddy went solo, the Bluenotes were DONE, even I quit listening to them. I’m glad I saw them in Atlanta @ the Kool Jazz Festival in 1974, which was the last time I saw them together with Teddy. When Teddy broke away in 1976-77, he soared to the top and now, he became a sex symbol with his voice and charmed the ladies. I saw him solo in 1981 in Atlanta and he took the stage by storm, especially with the women. Happy birthday 🎁🎂🎉 Harold Melvin

I remember as a young child going to see him Valley forge music Fair

Happy heavenly birthday my brother.

They have the best sound of all female vocals groups. They should be in the rocking roll hall of fame. How can we help them to be recognized. it's way over due.
