Love Train was featured on The O'Jays' sophomore album Back Stabbers. It was written & produced by Kenny Gamble & Leon Huff. The song became the O'Jays' first and only number one pop hit, topping the Billboard Hot 100 for a week in March of 1973. It also topped Billboard’s Best Selling Soul Singles chart for four weeks. It was also certified Gold by the RIAA.
Love Train remains the O’Jays’ one and only hit. But compared to the majesty of Back Stabbers, Love Train feels like an afterthought. Love Train is the last song on the O’Jays’ Back Stabbers album, and Eddie Levert has said that Kenny Gamble wrote the lyrics in about five minutes. Those lyrics work in stark counterpoint to what the group had been singing about on Back Stabbers. Back Stabbers was a paranoid vision, a warning that the people you call your friends will be happy to destroy you if they see you succeeding too much.
