Here's Blue Magic, Major Harris, and Margie Joseph on stage at the Latin Casino dinner theatre in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.

Bill Thompson, an entertainment writer for The Philadelphia Inquirer in a 1975 article described their appearance: "there was an Atlantic Records Company musical extravaganza and recording session Monday night that would make Caesars Palace in Las Vegas seem like a coffee shop."

Thompson added "the show began with the orchestra playing the sound track of the movie Jaws, along with a film introduction of the recording stars, and it ended almost two hours later with a standing ovation."

The Latin Casino is long gone. Subaru of America headquarters now occupies the Cherry Hill, New Jersey space. However, the double album recording of this event, released in 1976, lives on with many outstanding tracks.

Major Harris, of "Love Won't Let Me Wait" and the Delfonics fame, sings solo, and in tandem with either Blue Magic or Margie Joseph.

The performers sing their own songs, along with covers from Barry White, and versions of Gamble and Huff Philadelphia International hits including "I Love Music" and "Bad Luck."

Blue Magic, Major Harris, and Margie Joseph Live is an enjoyable mix of classic soul memories.

In 2007, Major Harris released his version of "My Cherie Amour," the Stevie Wonder hit.

Listen to 50 seconds of Major singing "My Cherie Amour."
