Love Is The Message (1975) is the second album released by Philadelphia International Records house band MFSB, and widely regarded as one of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff's shining moments. The album serves as a landmark LP for Philadelphia's mid-'70s Soul movement. The album hit the 4th spot in the Billboard Album Top 200, and topped the  Billboard Top Soul LPs Charts for quite some time.

This Grammy Award winning album includes the number one hit "TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)" featuring The Three Degrees. The song became the theme song for the immensely popular television show Soul Train, the dance show that still defines the Disco era. The song "Love Is The Message" would go on to be an enormous underground hit in New York's late-'70s disco scene, championed by influential DJs such as Larry Levan. In addition, the album also features the orchestra's take on "Touch Me In The Morning", a song popularized by Diana Ross that was another proto-disco classic.
