    About the album:
    Pendergrass's second album after his departure from Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes continued his solo ascent. Life Is a Song Worth Singing masterfully mixes and matches moods, flowing from two very different anthems (the dramatic title track and the party jam Get Down, Get Funky, Get Loose) through seductive classics such as Close the Door.

    3:22

    If you don't know me by now
    You will never never never know me

    All the things that we've been through
    You should understand me like I understand you
    Now baby I know the difference between right and wrong
    I ain't gonna do nothing to upset our happy home
    Oh don't get so excited when I come home a little late at night
    Cause we only act like children when we argue fuss and fight hey hey

    If you don't know me by now (If you don't know me by now)
    You will never never never know me (Youll never never never know me hey hey)
    If you don't know me by now(if you dont, If you dont know baby)
    You will never never never know me( no you wont)

    We've all got our own funny moods
    I've got mine, woman you've got yours too
    Just trust in me like I trust in you
    As long as we've been together it should be so easy to do
    Just get yourself together or we might as well say goodbye
    What good is a love affair when you can't see eye to eye, oh

    If you don't know me by now (If you don't, If you dont know me baby)
    You will never never never know me (Hey Hey..hey Hey hey hey hey)
    If you don't know me by now (If you dont know)
    You will never never never know me (No you wont )

    Oh

    10 long years we been together

    Really inspires me when I listen to this wonderful song... Thank you T. Pendergrass for making this song and continue touching our hearts... I really love this....

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Teddy Pendergrass started singing gospel music in Philadelphia churches, becoming an ordained minister at ten years old. While attending public school, he sang in the citywide McIntyre Elementary School Choir and in the All-City Stetson Junior High School Choir. A self-taught drummer, Pendergrass had a teen pop vocal group when he was 15. By his late teens, Pendergrass was a drummer for local vocal group the Cadillacs.

    To Be True In the late '60s, the Cadillacs merged with another more established group, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes. In 1970, when the Blue Notes broke up, Melvin, now aware of Pendergrass' vocal prowess, asked him to take the lead singer spot. It's no secret that Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff wanted Marvin Junior of the Dells for their Philadelphia International Records roster. Since the Dells were signed to Chess, they were unavailable. When the gruff'n'ready vocals of Pendergrass came their way, they eagerly signed the group. Beginning with I Miss You, a steady stream of hit singles flowed from the collaboration of Pendergrass and Gamble & Huff: If You Don't Know Me by Now, The Love I Lost, Bad Luck, Wake Up Everybody (number one R&B for two weeks in 1976), and two gold albums, To Be True and Wake Up Everybody.
    Unfortunately, the more success the group had, the more friction developed between Melvin and Pendergrass. Despite the revised billing of the group, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes featuring Theodore Pendergrass, Pendergrass felt that he wasn't getting enough recognition. Around 1976, Pendergrass left Melvin's Blue Notes and formed his own Blue Notes, featuring Teddy Pendergrass. Briefly, there was some confusion as to which Blue Notes were which. The resolution came when Pendergrass disbanded his Blue Notes in favor of a solo career and Melvin's group signed a recording contract with Source Records, distributed through ABC Records, scoring a hit with I Want to Be Your Lover.

    Teddy PendergrassPendergrass signed a new contract with Philadelphia International Records in late 1976/early 1977. He burst back on the scene with Teddy Pendergrass, a platinum solo debut that included the top-notch singles I Don't Love You Anymore, You Can't Hide from Yourself, and The More I Get the More I Want. Around this time, Pendergrass began to institute his infamous Ladies Only concerts. His next three albums went gold or platinum: Life Is a Song Worth Singing (1978), Teddy (1979), and Teddy Live (Coast to Coast). The hit single Close the Door was used in the film Soup for One, where Pendergrass had a small role.
    TP The singer received several Grammy nominations during 1977 and 1978, Billboard's 1977 Pop Album New Artist Award, an American Music Award for best R&B performer of 1978, and awards from Ebony magazine and the NAACP. He was also in consideration for the lead in the movie biopic The Otis Redding Story. The '70s ended, but Pendergrass kept racking up the hits. TP, his fifth solo album, went platinum in the summer of 1980 off the singles Turn Off the Lights, Come Go with Me, Shout and Scream, It's You I Love, and Can't We Try. It's Time for Love gave Pendergrass another gold album in summer 1981, which included the hit singles Love TKO and I Can't Live Without Your Love.
    Love Language A 1982 car accident left Pendergrass paralyzed from the waist down and wheelchair-bound. After almost a year of physical therapy and counseling, Pendergrass returned to the recording scene, signing a contract with Elektra/Asylum in 1983. His ninth solo album and Elektra/Asylum debut, Love Language went gold the spring of 1984. Philadelphia International issued two albums of unreleased tracks, This One's for You (1982) and Heaven Only Knows (1983). Other albums included Workin' It Back (1985), Joy (1988, whose title track went to number one R&B for two weeks), and Little More Magic (1993). The latter half of the '90s found Pendergrass recording for the Surefire/Wind Up label. Truly Blessed, the name of an 1991 Elektra album, is also the title of the autobiography Pendergrass co-authored with Patricia Romanowski. Apart from an appearance at a 2007 ceremony held in his honor, Pendergrass spent his later years away from the spotlight. He had difficulty recovering from colon cancer surgery and passed away on January 13, 2010.

    Summary:
    When Teddy Pendergrass agreed to record a new live album for the producers of the King Biscuit Flower Hour, it was unknown what kind of performance the audience might get from the man who was once considered among the sexiest artists on the music scene. The show took place a full twenty years after a near fatal car accident had left Pendergrass paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair. He had not performed an entire concert since the accident.

    Once Pendergrass and his 11-piece band hit the stage, however, it was clear to everyone sitting in the audience at L.A.'s Wiltern Theatre that the smooth groove of his music was just as soulful as ever. Although he was limited to a stationary, seated position, it seemed like nothing else from his 1970s heyday had changed. Gliding through old hits, new material, gospel and even songs from his days as vocalist for Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Pendergrass is clearly excited to be performing again. The fact that the show was recorded on Valentine's Day made it even more special, since so much of Pendergrass' material is about love. Love was in the air that night, Pendergrass said after the recording was made. It inspired me so much. Now I am glad it was recorded and people could share it together. Pendergrass dedicated the live album that was released from the show to his fans, who had waited all those years for my return to the concert stage. He added, You will be able to tell from the smile on my face how happy I was to be back singing live for you again.

    Pendergrass was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, and like so many other black vocalists, got his start singing gospel in the church. By the mid-1960s, he was in a teen vocal group called The Cadillacs, playing drums. When some of the members of The Cadillacs moved over to a more established R&B group called Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, Pendergrass went as well. The group already had a drummer but Melvin realized Pendergrass was a great singer, and when asked if he wanted to be the group's lead singer, he accepted. The group reemerged with a new lineup and a new, powerful R&B sound.

    At the same time, the landmark R&B songwriting/production teams of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff had been looking for a strong vocalist to sign to their new Philadelphia International label and sing their original songs. When they heard a demo of Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes with Pendergrass on vocals, they signed the group immediately. What followed was a series of R&B classics and albums beginning in 1972 that included I Miss You, If You Don't Know Me By Now, Love I Lost, Bad Luck and Wake Up Everybody, which went to #1 in early 1976. But with all the recognition going to Harold Melvin, Pendergrass rebelled, and in 1976 left to form his own version of the Blue Notes. With both acts using the name, confusion followed, as did a cease and desist order against Pendergrass. Rather than mount a legal fight, he opted to merely stay with Gamble and Huff on Philly International, as simply Teddy Pendergrass.

    Between 1977 and 1982, he released five solo albums (all of which went gold and/or platinum) and had a number of solo hits including I Don't Love You Anymore, You Can't Hide From Yourself, Turn Off the Lights, Come Go With Me and Love TKO, some of which he performed at this show. He was about to audition for the lead role in a biopic about Otis Redding when a car accident sidelined him in 1982. He returned to recording in 1984, but it seemed unlikely he would ever perform live again, that is until this King Biscuit show. Pendergrass continues to perform, but only on rare occasions, because of the physical strain it puts on him. He also wrote an autobiography and appeared in the play Your Arms Are Too Short to Box with God.

    LYRICS:
    you i know im no beginner, my hearts been to the wall
    i'm a tried and true romantic, who's seen and done it all

    when you walked into my life, suddenly i knew
    all the love i had inside, was leading me to you

    in my time, i've lived and loved so much
    through each high and low, i let my heart be touched
    in my time, there isnt much i've missed,
    i've seen love come and go, but heaven knows, i've never loved like this
    in my time

    after all that i've been through, i'm in love with you

    i've won some and i've lost some, but us dreamers don't complain
    we keep reaching out for passion, no matter what the pain
    when i looked into your eyes, it all fell into place
    i found what i was searching for, shining in your face

    in my time, i've lived and loved so much
    through each high and low, i let my heart be touched
    in my time, there isnt much i've missed,
    i've seen love come and go, but heaven knows, i've never loved like this
    in my time

    after all that i've been through, i'm in love with you

    in my time, i've lived and loved so much
    through each high and low, i let my heart be touched
    in my time, there isnt much i've missed,
    i've seen love come and go, but heaven knows, i've never loved like this
    in my time

    after all that i've been through, i'm in love with you
