Teddy Pendergrass had no regrets leaving Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes for a solo career. Signing with Philadelphia International Records and employing the Blue Notes’ production team of Gamble and Huff ensured that Pendergrass received the same musical support. The team clearly understood Pendergrass’ appeal and set out to provide him with material suitable to his persona and sympathetic to his gruff but flexible voice. His second solo album, 1978’s Life Is a Song Worth Singing, is tougher than his self-titled 1977 debut. The grooves hit harder. The title track, “Only You” and “Get Up, Get Down, Get Funky, Get Loose” sport punchier horns and tighter, funkier rhythms. Pendergrass puckers up and delivers with unbridled enthusiasm. He sounds positively ebullient shredding these tunes. “Cold, Cold World” and “When Somebody Loves You Back” showed off his quieter, sensitive side. While a clear ladies man — “Close the Door” would become one of his signature tunes — he proved he could appeal to a wide audience.
