Ohio Players one of the most popular funk, soul music and R&B bands of all-time. They are best known for their Gold Albums and number one hit records «Fire», «Love Rollercoaster», «Skin Tight», «Heaven Must Be Like This», «Honey», and «Funky Worm.» In 2013 they were inducted into the inaugural class of the Official R&B Music Hall of Fame.

The band formed in Dayton, Ohio in 1959 as the Ohio Untouchables and were best known at the time as a backing group for The Falcons. In 1965, the group had renamed themselves Ohio Players, reflecting its members' self-perceptions as musicians and as ladies men and became the house band for the New York-based Compass Records. The group disbanded in 1970 and then re-formed again in 1971 and had a hit with «Pain» on the Detroit-based Westbound label which reached the Top 40 of the Billboard R&B chart and lead their albums Pain and Pleasure which featured the provocative photography and artwork with they would be known for. The two albums featured a spiked-black leather-bikini clad, bald model Pat «Running Bear» Evans, who would later grace additional Ohio Players albums, including Climax, Ecstasy, and Gold.
