Shout! Factory will release Teddy Pendergrass Live In '82 on DVD on March 29th.
Filmed at London's Hammersmith Odeon in 1982, this incredible concert showcases Teddy at the peak of his powers. Performing hits from his four platinum albums — Teddy Pendergrass, Life Is A Song Worth Singing, Teddy and TP — the R&B legend delights the London crowd with energetic soul stompers and steamy serenades.
Filmed weeks before a car accident left him confined to a wheelchair, the concert concludes with a rousing rendition of "Reach Out And Touch (Somebody's Hand)," as Teddy is joined onstage by an adorable chorus of London schoolchildren.
In the late '70s and early '80s, Teddy Pendergrass was an unstoppable musical force. Having come to fame as lead singer for the hit Philly soul act Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, he launched a hugely successful solo career and became the first African-American artist to earn five Platinum records in a row. Teddy! Live In '79 is also available on DVD from Shout! Factory.
