The Temptations, Ball of Confusion [Single] (1970)
One of many songs I learned – and learned about – through those magical Tour of Duty soundtracks. I still have those, still play them, and I’ve bought and sold many full albums by many of the artists involved. I love The Temptations and have a few of their albums but I was after this single; total nostalgia drop – it had a big impact on me as a teenager, pre-teen even (just). When the Tour of Duty soundtrack (volume one) would go around and round in mum’s car. And sometimes I’d play my own copy of it (dubbed) too. Those Norman Whitfield productions. Magic. The b-side feels pretty good for right now too, so this was a nice find.
