The UK missed out on the early motown first time around. Until, Dusty Springfield presented Motown on a TV special we had no way of knowing about this enduring sound which is now almost into 51 years old. I guess as we grew up with this amazing sound we could not imagine that generations after would be enjoying the sound from hitsville. At the heart of the early period was the Temptations with the so called golden five at the helm. Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks,Melvin Franklin, David Ruffin & Otis Williams had five years of magical hits which still sound amazing. You can buy any of The Temptations Cd`s from that period and cannot really go wrong with them. This is a case in point and standout track for me is Since I Lost My Baby, some wonderful five part harmonies make this track timeless. The thing is if you require a kind of best of then Gold is a great collection that has a wide range of The Temps work. However if you are like me and you like everything they made from that period then collect them all, such as Meet the Temptations, The Temptations sing Smokey and with a lot o` soul as well as this little gem. Enjoy!
