A.k.a. The Blue Notes (3) The Harps

Soul - funk - disco male vocal quintet from Philadelphia, PA. Originally named The Blue Notes (3) from the mid-50s, they changed their name to "Harold Melvin And The Blue Notes" in the mid-60s. One of the original member Bernard Williams (3) then started his own group The Original Blue Notes. Became one of the most popular soul acts of the Philly soul scene of the '70s. Throughout their career they underwent several line-up changes. In the mid-70s, they split again and another group revived the original bandname, The Blue Notes, formerly the backing band behind the ex-drummer/new lead singer Teddy Pendergrass.
