American R&B group The O’Jays formed in 1958 in Canton, Ohio. Making their first appearance in 1963 with “Lonely Drifter”, it was almost a decade later that they reached successful heights when Gamble & Huff, a team of producers and songwriters, signed them to their Philadelphia International label in 1972. The same year, they released the Philadelphia soul hit “Back Stabbers” and in 1973 they topped the Billboard Hot 100 the following year with “Love Train”.
