Riff: The O’Jays – “Love Train”

Jun 18, 2013

All of you brothers over in Africa/Tell all the folks in Egypt and Israel too/Please don’t miss this train at the station/Cause if you miss it, I feel sorry, sorry for you

from Love Train lyrics by The O'Jays

Essential soul from the O’Jays, a slice of musical history born right out of the genius production of Gamble & Huff. Sure it’ll forever be synonymous with Soul Train, but since when was that a bad thing? Love, peace and soul from beginning to end; [LISTEN].
