REVIEWS
Average points: 4.6 (Reviews: 53)
******
Super!
****
...gut...
****
Mittelmässiger, gut gesungener Song, der etwas zu lang gezogen wird und daher recht langweilig ist. Die Stimme rettet vor 3*.
*****
Souliger Dancetrack ganz im Stil der US-Vocaltruppen, die anscheinend immer den gleichen, dunkelblauen Anzug anhatten und noch Naturkrause trugen.
******
"People all over the world, join love train" - zeitlose, kraftvolle Message, dazu verpackt in eine schöne Smooth-Soul-Melodie. Wird oft als Vorläufer zu Disco genannt. Ein Klassiker des Genres.
******
Wie fast alle Titel von P.I.R., dem Label der Komponisten und Produzenten Kenny Gamble und Leon Huff, bot auch "Love Train" von den O'Jays (eine der besten Gruppen dieses Labels) jenen federleichten, leicht verdaulichen Philly-Soul, der den Tanzwütigen in den 70er Jahren mächtig einheizte.
*****
Schönes Motto, noch besserer Rhythmus. Sicher auch ein Danceklassiker dieser Band.

# 1 Pop und # 1 R&B in den USA Anfang 1973.
*****
ja, der hat ziemlich dampf...selbst für nen zug...für nen oldschool zug...ach was quatsch ich da...einfach ein guter song, schön gesungen, wie von euch schon erwähnt...
*****
Super gute Laune Song. Ne 5
*****
ganz nettes Liedchen
*****
Sehr guter soulhaftiger song.... war knapp kein hit in NL anfang 1973 !
*****
Knappe Fünf.
****
...gut...
****
Netter Philadelphia-Sound. Schöner Refrain, der Rest ist eher durchschnittlich.
*****
...Gut...

*****
guter Phillysound!

Netter Phillysound - hatte ich schon fast vergessen
*****
sehr gut
***
better love car than love train...
****
...ganz nett...
******
Wunderbarer Oldie.
******
Sehr guter Klassiker.
****
netter soul dance 70er. der refrain ein plus!
****
ansprechender Soul-Titel zum das-Tanzbein-schwingen aus anfangs der 70er - 4*...
***
Nicht so, ich kenne die Version von Daryl Hall & John Oates.
*****
Alles schon gesagt hier, ein unvergänglicher Klassiker
der frühen 70er Jahre...

5 - 6
****
eher recht als schlecht
****
Titel track van het gelijknamige soulprogramma op de Amerikaanse televisie.
******
▒ Grandioze klassieker voor mij persoonlijk uit de herfst van 1972 door "The O'Jays" !!! Ook na 38 jaar: volle bak ☺!!!

@26-04-2012: Haalde in februari 1973 ook nog héél even de Nederlandse hitlijsten !!! (NL Tip 30: 3 wk / # 13) ☺!!!

Heute noch gut !
*****
Ganz wunderbar.
****
ein recht netter Soultitel, der mir ganz gut gefällt, aber zwischen diesem Song und "Backstabbers" liegen Welten!
Last edited: 19.02.2011 22:46

Ihr größter und bekanntester Hit, auch der, den ich als erstes von der Truppe kennnenlernte. Dafür bewerte ich ihm als letztes, hehe.
****
... gut ... 4+ ...
*****
...wunderschöner Oldie...
****
gefälliger oldie...
**
Boo to this song. Not a fan.
******
het origineel blijft het beste
supersoul/disco uit de vroege 70's
de 12" krijgt 6 sterren
TSOP in volle glorie
******
Unter den Klassikern des Phillysounds gehören beide - Gruppe und Song - unter den ersten TOP 10 ... pure Euphorie!
*
Ce disco est assourdissant.
***
... och nö, nervt insgesamt ...
*****

Guter Oldie.

...jetzt doch eine 5, wenn auch eine Knappe.

Ordentlicher Philly-Klassiker. Ihr einziger Spitzenreiter in den USA.
*****
prima plaat
****
Nett
****
Über ein "ganz nett" geht die Nummer einfach bei mir nicht hinaus, nach einem grossen Hit klingt das nicht in meinen Ohren, auch wenn's eine US #1 war!

War übrigens auch ein UK Hit : #9 im April 1973!
******
Ich liebe Phillysoul, und dieser Song hat alles, was mich daran so begeistert. Einer der besten melodischen Songs aller Zeiten, und grossartiger Gesang.
