During the ’60s, there were primarily two centers of soul music: Detroit and Memphis. By the early ’70s there were three – Philadelphia was added to the list. The Blue Notes were formed way back in 1954, and recorded as early as 1956, but it took two decades to make a significant entry on the charts, which they did with “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” which went to # 3 in 1972. Teddy Pendergrass does the very dramatic lead vocal.
