Synopsis by Mark Deming
Teddy Pendergrass first rose to fame as the vocalist with Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, and then went on to a successful solo career as one of R&B's great love men, scoring five multiplatinum albums in a row and landing a fistful of singles on the charts. Pendergrass lost the use of his legs in a 1982 auto accident, but he bravely held on to his will to perform, and from his wheelchair is still knocking audiences flat around the world. Teddy Pendergrass: From Teddy With Love is a concert video recorded in Los Angeles during the Valentine's Day show on his 2002 tour; Teddy and his band play fourteen songs, including "If You Don't Know Me By Now", "Love TKO", "You're My Latest, My Greatest Inspiration", "Turn Off The Lights", and ten others.
