How well this album has held up after 40 years...but then again with a voice like that, great song writing, real melodies, and Sigma Sound players...why would it not. It captured the zeitgeist of the times....you'll remember what if felt like if you were anywhere around Philadelphia at that time...there was a special magic coming out of the city....music made and produced by The Sound of Philadelphia for discos in NYC and around the world. The seminal three--"You Can't Hide From Yourself", "The More I Get", and "I Don't Love You Anymore" are superlative. The latter then remixed by Tom Moulton out to 9:04 with long instrumental passages interplayed with Teddy's gruff vocals will create a yearning, a desire, a need deep down within that will feel insatiable...as though 9:00 minutes isn't long enough, and that you just can't get enough. Pure musical pleasure!

What huge Disco masterpiece is "You Can't Hide From Yourself". Definitely a 'must-have-it' kind. It's easy to realize that the seventies brought most of the greatest vocals of the contemporary dance music, and the ones of Teddy Pendergrass are situated among them, no doubt about it. This is a singer that shall be remembered not only for his solo career, but also for what he did on Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes - times when Soul and the other styles of dance music were often seen together.
