I started listening to the O'Jays when I was in high school. My stepfather was a big fan. I loved the sound of MFSB and the songs always had a message. My stepfather liked the gospel flavor. This is one of the best "greatest hits" CD's I've found. There is no "filler" song that wasn't a hit. And the messages still hold true today. I loaned it to my stepfather and now he won't return it! "Love Train" is one of my very favorite songs. I highly recommend this CD to all O'Jays fans.

This CD is terrific. Every song on here is a classic. I only gave it 4 stars because it's missing too many hits. Why doesn't one of the most original groups to come out of the 70's have an extensive box set? Amazon has one listed that is from England I think, but it is missing way to many songs. And why haven't their albums been remastered and rereleased the way that they did Earth, Wind & Fire albums? Weren't The O'Jays just as good and deserving? I realize these guys have about 10 different greatest hits and were on more than 1 label, but come on, it's 2005 and we, the fans of The O'Jays, demand a complete box set.

This CD is an outstanding compilation of most of the O'Jays greatest hits. Digitally remastered, it brings back feelings of admiration for the soulful and melodic Philadelphia style that was the calling card of the group. Fronted by the resounding lead vocals of Eddie Levert and backed up instrumentally by MFSB, the group was in the forefront of R&B in the 70's and 80's. This collection of tunes is a fantastic representation of the great brand of both funky music and love ballads of that era.

My 12 yr. old grandson heard "Love Train" on a beer commercial. I started singing it & he wanted to know how I knew it. I told him that song was in "my day" and he didn't want to accept that. So, I ordered it, proved him wrong and he has since down-loaded the entire CD on his X-Box. Thanks for offering a great, great memory for me.

Aside from collecting the individual albums, you can't do any better than this CD! It contains an amazing slew of tracks from their most prolific period. The sound quality is excellent and it bypasses single edits for the full-length album versions, most notably the stellar 7 1/2 minute complete version of "For the Love of Money."
Every track is superb (with the exception of the relentlessly dumb Family Reunion, but lots of people like that and you might too). The only disadvantage is that it stops after the "Family Reunion" album, so some decent later hits (Use Ta Be My Girl, Forever Mine) are missing, but you can get the "Best of 1974-1980" if you need those tracks, and they are nowhere near as essential as most of the tracks on this CD.
Honestly, this is the one to get!

Pop in the O'Jays and travel back in time. Life was alot easier and you were much happier because you were young and dumb. So for a little while enjoy this time before reality comes crashing back in. Just kidding, you know the songs they are still great.

THere should be a remastered double cd of their work, to cover the songs that always seem to be missing from their compilations. This cd is missing "Use ta be my girl" and also "darlin darlin baby". Even if there is another record label involved (tho i'm not sure), enough time has gone by to remedy that problem.
