Ship Ahoy is a rhythm and blues album by Philadelphia soul group The O’Jays, released on November 10, 1973 on Philadelphia International Records. The album was a critical and commercial success, reaching #1 on Billboard’sBlack Albumschart and #11 on the “Pop Albums” chart and launching two hit singles, “For the Love of Money” and “Put Your Hands Together.” Conceived as a theme album built around the title track, Ship Ahoy includes socially relevant tracks and love songs under a cover that is itself notable for its serious subject matter. The album, which achieved RIAA platinum certification for over 1 million copies sold in 1992, has been reissued multiple times, including in a 2003 edition with a bonus track. Ship Ahoy was the highest selling R&B album on the Billboard Year-End chart for 1974.
