Alongside Barry White and Al Green, Teddy Pendergrass is one of the ultimate "lover man" R&B singers. His rough-smooth voice, all intensity, texture, and intimacy, is so perfectly suited to Philly International's rich, string-sweetened production and silky grooves (not to mention Gamble & Huff's well-penned tunes) that it's no wonder he became one of the most popular R&B performers of the late-1970s and early-'80s.
Love songs were Pendergrass's thing, and they make up the lion's share of any of his solo releases, so while a compilation entitled THE LOVE SONGS COLLECTION may seem a bit redundant, it is also (from a marketing perspective) totally understandable. That said, LOVE SONGS contains most of the singer's best-known hits, including "Turn Off the Lights," "Come Go With Me," and "Close the Door" (which remains something of a signature song). Though it sacrifices much of his best up-tempo material, this is, at 17 tracks, an excellent overview of Pendergrass's command of the slow jam.
