During the 1970s, Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff, & Thom Bell collectively produced 60 gold- or plat.  record albums & singles. They made superstars out of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, the O’Jays, Teddy Pendergrass, the Spinners, & the Stylistics. The biggest hits were “Back Stabbers,” “Drowning in the Sea of Love,” “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” & “The Love I Lost.”  Bell has collaborated on, “Betcha by Golly, Wow,” “I’m Stone in Love with You,” “La-La Means I Love You,” & “You Make Me Feel Brand New.” Underscores the racism of the music business of that time, forcing them to create their own label, sign their own artists, & create their own sound. But their prod. co. failed, brought down by payola, compet., a tough econ., & changing pop tastes. Illus.
