3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Andy Edwards VINE VOICE on 6 Dec. 2007
Format: Audio CD
This album arrived at a time when the message in the music was becoming more and more explicit and Soul had progressed beyond being simply "feelgood" music.

The Philly sound was there, bands like the Stylistics with production by Thom Bell had seen hits, but the arrival of the O'Jays as major artists heralded the conveyor belt of quality which was to emanate from Philadelphia. And few could argue that they didn't deserve their chance at the big time as they had served their time on the chitlin' circuit.

The group have few equals, each capable of the lead, and this showcases their talents. Some tracks need no introduction, but there are many here deserving attention - the anti war "When the Worlds at Peace", the burning "Listen to the Clock on the Wall" and "Sunshine", which is a more traditional Soul ballad.

992 Arguments is perhaps a little too much of a Backstabbers clone, but overall an excellent album.

IMO not their best ("Ship Ahoy" takes that crown) but a good place to start on the O'Jays.

The Internet blurb to this CD reissue by Big Break Records of the UK (also known as BBR) claims to have 'lovingly remastered' the album for a new audience. And one minute into this amazing remaster and I know they're right. I've loved this fabulous Soul album to distraction for decades and what a blast it is to finally hear it sound 'so' good. Let's get to the 'people all over the world' details right away...

UK released in June 2011 - Big Break Records CDBBR 0051 (Barcode 5013929035126) breaks down as follows (49:07 minutes):

1. When The World's At Peace
2. Back Stabbers
3. Who Am I
4. (They Call Me) Mr. Lucky
5. Time To Get Down
6. 992 Arguments [Side 2]
7. Listen To The Clock On The Wall
8. Shiftless, Shady, Jealous Kind Of People
9. Sunshine
10. Love Train
Tracks 1 to 10 are the album "Back Stabbers" - originally released September 1972 in the USA on Philadelphia International KZ 31712 and October 1972 in the UK on CBS Records S 65257 (it peaked at Number 3 on the US R&B charts in October 1972). It was reissued March 1973 in the UK on Philadelphia International S PIR 65932

Track 11 is the 7" single edit of "992 Arguments" at 2:24 minutes (the full album version is 6:10 minutes)

Track 12 is "Love Train (Tom Moulton Mix)" - a remix from 1977 running to 6:15 minutes (the album version is 3:03 minutes).

Housed in one those 'Deluxe' rounded jewel cases, the superlative 16-page booklet has a knowledgeable and hugely affection essay on the Group, Philly and the album's making by CHRISTIAN JOHN WIKANE.
