THE O’JAYS were formed by five high school friends in 1958 who after seeing Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers perform, were inspired to start a vocal group. They spent time on various labels and released some fairly successful singles on Imperial Records working with H.B. Barnum and also Gamble & Huff, who were working as a production team for Neptune Records. Neptune folded in 1971 leaving THE O’JAYS, now a trio, in somewhat of a limbo. Having already captured the attention of Gamble & Huff, THE O’JAYS became one of the first signings at the newly formed, now legendary, Philadelphia International Records. Back Stabbers, released in 1972, was the album that made THE O’JAYS a household name and begun a period of incredible success with Philadelphia International, giving them close to 30 singles in the charts including a string of #1 R&B hits helping them to become one the labels biggest group and also serving as a landmark of the classic Philly Soul sound.  The title track was chosen for the first single and reached #5 on the US Pop chart while giving THE O’JAYS a #1 R&B hit. LOVE TRAIN followed suit and duly hit the top spot on the R&B charts as well as clinching the #1 position on the US Pop Chart.  BBR is so very proud to present the first ever expanded edition of this iconic Philly Soul album. Back Stabbers has been lovingly-mastered and carefully repackaged in full-expanded form. Complete with extensive liner notes featuring interviews along with added bonus content.Released in deluxe Super Jewel cases this BBR Remaster is a must have for all Funk, R&B and Philly Soul fans out there!
