O'Jays, 2005 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee

The O’Jays were at the forefront of Seventies soul music. Racking up a lengthy string of modern R&B classics, they helped put the “Philly Soul” sound (so named for Philadelphia-based producers, Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff) on the map. In fact, the O’Jays were the backbone of Gamble and Huff’s Philadelphia International label, which released some of the greatest and most influential Seventies records. During a fifteen-year run, the O’Jays placed 35 singles on the R&B chart, nine of which went to #1. The vast majority of the group’s hits were made with Gamble and Huff for their various labels - Neptune, Philadelphia International, TSOP - in a relationship dating back to 1969. - See more at:
