The O'Jays, Billy Paul, The Intruders – Philadelphia International Tour: Hammersmith Odeon, London

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, December 1973

MOST INITIAL comments that I overheard on my way out from the Philly Package concert at London's Hammersmith Odeon theatre were slightly tinged with disappointment. Whilst everybody was genuinely appreciative of being allowed the opportunity to see three major American acts in one evening, there was the all-too-frequent comment of: "Well, I've seen it all before!"
