Ohio Players

There were only a few groups in the mid-’70s that had crossover appeal like the Ohio Players. They helped open the door for an explosion of soul and R&B on the Top 40 charts that we saw in the ’80s. The Ohio Players were one of those groups. The combination of a funky groove plus a tight horn section was infectious. Oh, sexy album covers didn’t hurt either.
