"In 1977, Philadelphia International Records released the self-titled Teddy Pendergrass album, which went Platinum. More importantly, it set the tone that Pendergrass was not only poised for solo stardom, he was already a star. And for anyone who had lingering doubt about his powers, 'Life Is a Song Worth Singing,' Pendergrass’ second album, came with the receipts. Recorded at the famed Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia and released in June of 1978, the album was an artistic and commercial triumph and, creatively, a work of art. It positioned him as a sex symbol, but not just that. The album also contained groove-filled excursions for the mind and for the dancefloor. It showcased Pendergrass’ versatility and robust voice to even greater range than its predecessor, and it quickly rose from the level of fan favorite to TSOP masterpiece."
