After moving away from their home country in 1964, they established themselves on the European jazz circuit, where they continued to play and record through the 1970s.

Blue Notes is an album by American jazz saxophonist Johnny Hodges and orchestra featuring performances recorded in 1966 and released on the Verve label.

Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes. Reissue title and cover. The album was remastered and reissued in 2003 by Sony Music Entertainment with a bonus track, a live 1973 recording of "If You Don't Know Me by Now".

A fantastic debut by Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes that wasn't meant to be. Most of these songs, including "If You Don't Know Me By Now," were originally written for the Dells, but the deal fell through. Harold Melvin got the opportunity because his ex-drummer Teddy Pendergrass had a voice similar to Dells lead singer Marvin Junior. The poignant "If You Don't Know Me By Now" sold a million for the Blue Notes and did even better years later for Simply Red. "Be For Real" is one of the finest recorded pieces in R&B history; it's not a song, it's a pleader where a guy admonishes his woman for looking down on people.
