Although we usually highlight new albums in the Album of the Week slot, this year we head back 50 years to the release of the O’Jays breakthrough album. The group had been around since the late 1950s, but it was Back Stabbers that took them to the big time, particularly with the single “Love Train” which was their biggest and best known hit. This album belongs in any serious soul collection and has been described as “the Pinnacle of Philly soul”.
