Format: Audio CD
Jimmy Ruffin’s brother David was a member of the Temptations, so talent was obviously in the blood. However, Jimmy was somewhat fortunate to hit big with What becomes of the broken hearted. Diana Ross and the Supremes had recorded it and their version was intended for release as a single. Jimmy heard their version soon after it was recorded and begged Motown to let him record it, and to hold the Supremes version until they heard his. The rest is history. The original Supremes version, which is excellent and would have been a huge hit for them, appeared on one of their albums, but Jimmy’s version, which is even better, was released as a single and became a huge hit in Britain, America and elsewhere.
The Supremes could afford to lose the competition for What becomes of the broken hearted, but it turned out to be the biggest hit Jimmy ever had. Jimmy had a few minor hits in America but was more successful in Britain where I’ll say forever my love and It’s wonderful proved that he was more than a one-hit wonder.
All those hits are to be found here, together with many other great songs that Jimmy recorded for Motown. These include covers of Stand by me, on which his brother David joins Jimmy, and This guy’s in love with you.
Jimmy Ruffin was not Motown’s most important singer, but he recorded some great music and this is the most comprehensive collection available. More recent collections have been re-mastered with better sound quality, but the sound here is plenty good enough and a lot of these tracks are not available on any other CD.

If you want just one CD of Jimmy Ruffin that has all his hits, then this is for you. Good stereo sound and great singing from his soulful voice. He was much more than a one hit wonder. I own this CD and can thoroughly recommend it.

This is one of the finest artists that Motown produced and this album contains most of his best work. Timeless songs which " bring back old memories". I`ll never tire of hearing his voice and the duet with his brother (Stand by me) I think is the best version I have ever heard
