Losing Teddy…

I wasn’t familiar with Teddy Pendergrass when he chimed in with Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. The Teddy I knew was after his unfortunate accident that left him paralyzed in 1982. But this group produced many sensational hits which were raves in the early 70’s and some when I was just a little pup! Mama’s heavy rotations helped me to become acquainted with their music and some of her favs: “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,”  “Bad Luck,” “Wake Up Everybody.” Even when Teddy began a solo career he continued to sing those velvety tunes that we like to call…baby-making music! “Close The Door,” “Come Go With Me,” “Turn Off The Lights,” “When Somebody Loves You Back.” Umm..Teddy was a classic, a true rhythm & blues man and his presence will be sorely missed.
