The fourth and final album featuring Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes with singer Teddy Pendergrass from Philadelphia International Records, 1975’s Wake Up Everybody remains one of the era’s most resilient, and overlooked, pieces of Philly Soul. The seven-and-a-half minute title track was a classic piece of contemporary writing, addressing the societal ills of the 1970s while holding out for greater hope and world cooperation, a sweet piece of muted anger and gospel-rooted preaching wrapped in the gorgeous string-laden arrangements of producers Gamble and Huff. “You Know How to Make Me Feel So Good” features a stirring duet with Pendergrass vocal foil Sharon Paige. “Don’t Leave Me This Way” later became a huge disco hit for Thelma Houston, but its sturdy thrusting tightly-wound roots are right here (and also featured in a Tom Moulton 12-inch remix bonus track). Producers Gamble and Huff had an intuitive knack for orchestrating with great verve and flash without ever overwhelming the artist. “Tell the World How I Feel About ‘Cha Baby” swirls with backing vocals, horn charts, and strings with a relentless chug, but Pendergrass holds court front and center, feeding brilliantly off each pinball-like bounce.
