Daryl Hall & John Oates (The Silver Album)
Label: Buddha Records
Hall & Oates delved even deeper into Philly soul with this 1975 album. Opener "Camellia" has one of their best choruses; "Alone Too Long" reaches "She's Gone"-like heights of Chi-Lite worship; and the rocker "Gino (the Manager)" is flat-out weird and great. Then there's "Sara Smile," which is hands down one of the finest love songs ever written.
