When I got the news that soul singer Teddy Pendergrass died at the age of 59, I was saddened. I don't know why, but I have been playing his solo and Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes performances on my I-Pod lately. I love the song Pretty Flower. It is one of my favorites of his Bluenote days; while Come on Go with Me is my favorite solo tune.
Like he sang on Come on Go with Me, "believe me you're not under any kind of pressure" to agree with me about my favorite TP songs! However, on this we all agree, he will be missed.
Thank you TP. May you rest in peace.
