The O'Jays: Ship Ahoy (Philadelphia International PIR 65860 £2.17)

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 7 December 1973

THE O'JAYS have emerged as the most serious competition that the Temptations have had during their four year reign as undisputed top soul group. And it was all achieved via the O'Jays first album on Philadelphia International, Back Slabbers, which not only included that multi-million selling performance but also gained gold for the group via 'Love Train'.
