Back on Top is a 1968 album by all-male group The O'Jays, featuring their biggest hit for the Bell label, "I'll Be Sweeter Tomorrow (Than I Was Today)". Their hit "Look Over Your Shoulder" was also included on this album. George Kerr produced the album with Pat Jaques engineering. Richard Tee was the conductor and arranger.

Original O'Jays members Eddie Levert, William Powell, Walter Williams and Bobby Massey all contributed to this album, and all four were pictured on its cover. This is the first O'Jays album not to include the group's fifth original member, Bill Isles, who quit the group shortly before this album was recorded. Bobby Massey would also later leave the group, just before their breakthrough success with Philadelphia International Records.
