The O'Jays: Deep Cuts

The O'Jays aren't shy about pairing their slick funk with their feelings about the world at large, declaring their intent on the rallying cry “Message In Our Music.” “Survival” lays a growled portrait of poverty over piping-hot bass; “Don't Call Me Brother” mixes tremulous strings and rich harmonies with a pointed demand for respect. The O'Jays' blend of the personal and the funky remains the ideal of soul music.
