Pendergrass On The Rise
Doug Henderson | 04/01/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This concert footage from February 1979 shows a rising virtuoso mastering song and audience as few have ever done. After leaving Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in the mid-1970's, Teddy Pendergrass embarked on a stellar solo career that saw him become the first African American male to garner 5 consecutive platinum albums (remember albums?). His meteoric rise was cut short by a tragic car accident in March 1982 that left him confined to a wheelchair. Just before his accident, however, Pendergrass had so mastered his craft that he was widely being called the Black Elvis. Female fans of all races surrendered to his machismo. Midway between the beginning of his solo career and his accident, he entertains us with unbridled passion and a thoughtful show put together for the visual as as much as the music. The star is in fine voice as he sings a medley of hits from his days with Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes, as well as hits form his albums. He even adds a bonus track, a soulful rendition of the hit "All By Myself." For those looking to see what soul music is all about, purchase this DVD. It is to be played over and over and over again."

"Teddy Pendergrass was running things back in the day for a while. He is underrated to me because you see a Cat who had a rawness in his musical presentation,but had a voice that struck a chord. this concert shows a Artist in his prime&very much in tune with his audeince.the Chicks back in the day especially around my old hood loved them some Teddy P. the fellas respected his voice&he also had songs that were direct&to the point just as his vocal presentation."

"As an ole skool fan of Teddy, I was very pleased to see him in his prime!! I highly recommend this DVD for any Teddybear fan..it's a must.
The only draw back I can say, is that it's not enough of his better hits, Love TKE, Come and go with me...etc.
That still being said, I totally enjoyed this DVD.
I hope to see others in the future!!
