5.0 out of 5 stars The Temps at their very best 8 Nov 2005
By RussB
Format:Audio CD
If you're gonna buy one Temps album make it this one.For me they're at their very best with David Ruffin at the absolute peak of his tortured, anguished genius.He finally becomes THE front man, leading 7 of the 12 tracks here including the first 4,all full of drama, grit and emotion. The vastly underrated and greatly underused baritone Paul Williams shows what he's capable of on 'No More Water In The Well' and Eddie Kendricks makes his usual highly valuable contribution with his effortless falsetto on the remaining tracks. The harmonies throughout are as tight as you could want and with The Funk Brothers behind them this has to be one of the all time great Motown albums.Buy and enjoy!!

Motown albums in the sixties were often filled with covers of motown hits and a few singles. In the hands of Norman Whitfield however the temptations produced original music, which makes them essential purchases for tempts fans. But never did they get it so right as they did on this album. Every song has something different than the usual; whether it is the performance of the singers or the ambitious arrangements of the songs. There are a number of ballads perfectly placed alonside some more uptempo songs and the album flows. This is a band on top form with one of the most talented producers of all time and any sixties soul fan must try to get this in their collection. Lastly, it is worth getting this album on its own as the two-for-one set which comes along with Live at the Copa does not have You're my everything, which is on of the finest points on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Temptations at their best! 24 April 2013
By Alien
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Clearly the most oustanding "LP" of The Temptations long career. This Album has their original line up with outstanding tracks with Eddie Kendricks, David Ruffin and Paul Williams alternating leads on varying tracks. I teal Gem of both The Temptations and Tamla Motown at it's very best. Would have loved in on CD but had to settle for a MP3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aptly titled 5 Jan 2003
By The Fancy One - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
For anyone who has a real appreciation for close-knit, tight harmonies, you can't beat the Temptations on ANYTHING they sing. Always on point, they're back again with this offering from early 1967, WITH A LOT O' SOUL, which yielded four hit singles. By this time, the Tempts, aka THE CLASSIC FIVE, were the hottest R&B act on the planet, thrilling fans the world over, and albums like this were the reason why! It sounds just as mesmorizing and fresh today as it did back in 1967!! The gritty emotion of the opening song, the first smash "(I Know) I'm Losing You" with the magnificent tenor vocals of David Ruffin set the stage for what you're going to hear throughout this album...down-to-earth confessions from men telling of love lost and found, hearts broken and healed, and pleas for acceptance and forgiveness wrapped in a soulful and heartfelt package. And let me tell you, these guys NEVER, EVER come off as weak...but more like real men with feelings that aren't afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves.

By now Norman Whitfield was sharing production credits with Smokey Robinson, and you can tell the difference between the two when you hear the songs. Whereas Smokey's songwriting and productions usually were more on the sweeter and gentle side, Whitfield's were more demanding, more anguished, more driving, especially with David Ruffin out in front on most of the tunes, with the notable exceptions of the funky, blues-tinged "No More Water In The Well", a Smokey production -- with the supremely gifted but underrated Paul Williams on the lead vocal; Eddie Kendrick(s)' sweet falsetto guaranteed to seduce on "Save My Love For A Rainy Day", the gorgeous "Two Sides To Love", and still ANOTHER hit from WITH A LOT O' SOUL -- the duet with David, "You're My Everything" (the interplay between these two guys is sheer HEAVEN); and a rare lead vocal by Otis Williams on "Don't Send Me Away", another Smokey production.

The passion of the remaining songs and their lyrics are perfectly handled by Ruffin, who never failed to give less than 100% on any of his vocal performances. He shines on all of these songs, with my favorites being the aforementioned "(I Know) I'm Losing You", "(Loneliness Has Made Me Realize) It's You That I Need" (the harmonies and the arrangement on this song -- WHOA!! and yet another hit), the Holland-Dozier-Holland soundalike "All I Need" (the fourth smash from this, produced by Frank Wilson, who would be teamed with Eddie in his solo career years later) and the down-home, Memphis-like sweetness of "Now That You've Won Me". You simply cannot appreciate music for what it is unless you hear this album. And once you hear it, you'll never have to wonder just why these guys are legends. A MUST HAVE.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Temptations Album Ever! 14 Sep 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a near perfect album! "You're My Everything" a wonderful ballad with the great vocal trade-off between Eddie Kendricks & David Ruffin is awesome. The underated "Its You That I Need" is also great as it sounds kind of retro (like a Drifters song) but also very contemporary for 1967 standards, some wonderful harmonies in there (ATTENTION OLDIES STATIONS! PLEASE START PLAYING THIS SONG. IT WAS A TOP 20 HIT!) This song in particular sounds great on walkman headphones. There is also "All I Need", another rich, harmony laden, uptempo masterpiece. Who can forget "I'm Losing You", with its jagged guitar opening and David Ruffin's intense lead vocal. You also get the bluesy "No More Water in The Well" with a lead vocal from Paul Williams and a nice ballad with a rare lead by Otis Williams ("Don't Send Me Away" which also includes some great bass singing from Melvin Franklin). Eddie Kendricks gets some other leads on the interestingly arranged toe-tapper "Save My Love For a Rainy Day" and the lovely ballad "Two Sides to Love." David Ruffin gives great performances on two mid-tempo numbers ("One Last Look" & the 4 Top styled "Sorry Is A Sorry Word"). Everything else on this album is topnotch as well (the rocking "Ain't No Sun Since You Been Gone" and yet another nice ballad called "Now That You've Won Me"). Even though he gets no leads, Mel Franklin's wonderful bass vocals are all over this album!
The overall quality of this album can be partly credited (besides the Temptations great performances) to Norman Whitfield and others who contributed songs (including Smokey Robinson & Holland-Dozier-Holland and even the unsung R. Dean Taylor among others). This is one of the last great collections of Motown's first golden era.
What more can I say? This album should be required listening for any young vocal group who is just starting out.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST OF THE BEST 10 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, I'll be brief. This is one of the finest,
most fun, beautiful, soaring achievements to ever
come out of Motown. The Temptations had released
several wonderful LPs and singles before "With
A Lot O Soul", but this is the pinnacle of the
David Ruffin years. David, Eddie Kendricks and
Paul Williams all top themselves here, with soul
music so fantastic you'll smile and cry at once.
Stop reading, go buy this now!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tempts Got Soul 20 Oct 2000
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
David Ruffin has a voice that can dig down to the depths of despair and display the heartbreak and agony of love. Combine that with the heavenly falsetto of Eddie Kendricks, the deep bass of Melvin Franklin and you have what made the Temptations such a magnificent vocal group. With A Lot O' Soul finds the Tempts dealing with heartaches. From the hit single of "(I Know) I'm Losing You" to the lesser known songs like "Sorry Is A Sorry Word", "Don't Send Me Away", "No More Water In The Well" and "Just One Last Look", the band explores the true meaning of being lonely. This is not a typical Motown album that makes you want to get up and dance, but shows that Motown artists could make mature music.

5.0 out of 5 stars AGONY AND ECSTASY 24 Dec 2004
By LORETTA "K" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
IN 1967 THE MOTTO WAS NO PAIN NO GAIN. GIVE IT YOUR ALL, GIVE IT ALL YOUVE GOT AND YOULL GET ALL IN RETURN. ALL MEMBERS OF THE GROUP WERE PUTTING THEMSELVES INTO THEIR MUSIC AND WORK 110% . THE FURIOUS FIVE HAD A STROKE OF MAGIC THAT WAS TOO HOT TO THE HUMAN TOUCH. THEIR BAND DIRECTOR, CORNELIUS GRANT HAD 3 CUTS ON THIS ONE. HE WAS PUTTING THE PEDAL TO THE METAL AND STRETCHING THEM OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE. CORNELIUS GRANT WROTE 3/SONGS- "I KNOW IM LOSING YOU / AINT NO SUN SINCE YOU BEEN GONE/AND YOURE MY EVERYTHING. HIS MUSICAL ABILITY HELPED THEM TO SOAR TO NEW HEIGHTS AND DRIVE THEM INTO NEW #1 HITS. THE GIFTS/TALENTS WERE FLOWING ABUNDANTLY. YOU HAD TO BE THERE TO EXPERIENCE IT.
