LOVE TRAIN * O'JAYS * CBS 1181 * UK
Written and produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, and taken from the LP Back Stabbers this was the O'Jays only top ten single in the UK. Lyrically utopian and with a simple repetitive beat this song was in direct contrast to their previous US release 992 Arguments, which had darker lyrics and a more experimental rhythm, demonstrating the versatility of both the group and the producers.
Originally released in the US on Philadelphia International 3524 (see below) it became a number one hit on both the R&B and Pop charts in February and March 1973 respectively.
