The Three Degrees

Year of Decision

Song Review by

The Three Degrees' "Year of Decision" is an example of the brisk optimism heard on a good portion of Philly soul. The disco favorite was written by Gamble & Huff and has some of the "feel-good" inclusive activism found on the O'Jays' gold number one R&B/pop hit "Love Train." Included on their excellent Top 30 R&B/pop album The Three Degrees, "Year of Decision" was the flip side of their number four R&B/number two pop/number one adult contemporary single "When Will I See You Again," which sold more than two million copies.
