Life Is a Song Worth Singing [Total Soul Classics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ron Wynn
This was the album that convinced anyone who had doubts about the wisdom of Pendergrass leaving Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes that he had made a good decision. Although he only got one R&B hit from the album, there were enough strong ballads and uptempo cuts to show that Pendergrass had the sound, personality, and style to cut it on his own. He would shortly become R&B's greatest male attraction, but in the interim, Philadelphia International was laying the ground work. [Legacy's Total Soul Classics reissue adds the single version of "Only You" and the disco version of "Get Down, Get Funky."]
