The Temptations, 25th Anniversary: Volume One (1986)
I love The Temptations – who doesn’t, right? One of those bands I thought I discovered via the Vietnam War-era “Sixties Revival” of the mid/late 80s – and thought I heard some key songs on some key compilations and soundtracks it turns out I knew so many of these songs already. At that point it was about the song, not the artist – you knew stuff from radio…so in that sense I’ve been listening to The Temptations my whole live. About 15 years ago I started checking out some of the original albums – and bought up a few. But when I saw this compilation recently I figured it would be worth having. One for the DJ crate. One for nights at home also – a can’t-fail/must-have comp. Bursting with those great, great songs.
