Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy, yeah Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy Ship Ahoy! Ship Ahoy! . The song Ship Ahoy examines what scholars and activist have referred to as the middle passage -the literal voyage that enslaved Africans made across the Atlantic Ocean in slave ships destined for the Americas and the Caribbean. Ship Ahoy" Track Info. Written By Kenneth Gamble & Leon Huff.

Survival is a 1975 album by American R&B group The O'Jays, released on the Philadelphia International Records label. Recorded at Sigma Sound Studios in Philadelphia, and produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, Survival includes the R&B chart-topping single "Give the People What They Want" and "Let Me Make Love to You", which reached on the same chart. Survival matched exactly the chart performance of its predecessor Ship Ahoy, topping the R&B chart and peaking at on the pop chart.

Ship Ahoy, the O’Jays album that consolidated their superstardom after the world-beating Back Stabbers, is best known for For the Love of Money and its lowdown, phased bassline. It’s the album's toughest cut by some measure, but Ship Ahoy’s pursuit of Philly-style message soul hardly ends there. Put Your Hands Together is an uptempo jam whose payoff ( And let us pray ) gives a spin to an R&B and rock commonplace.

Ship Ahoy is a 1942 musical-comedy film directed by Edward Buzzell and starring Eleanor Powell and Red Skelton. It was produced by MGM. Ship Ahoy was the first of two films in which Powell and Skelton co-starred.

The "other" O'Jays album masterpiece, Ship Ahoy combined shattering message tracks and stunning love songs in a fashion matched only by Curtis Mayfield's finest material. From the album cover showing a slave ship to the memorable title song and incredible "For the Love of Money," Gamble and Huff addressed every social ill from envy to racism and greed. Eddie Levert's leads were consistently magnificent, as were the harmonies, production and arrangements
