Spanning the years from 1964-1975 - This "Ultimate Collection" CD contains 20 tracks in all which offers the listener a really good sample of the Temptations' musical output during this pivotal period of time in American soul music history.

The Temptations are an American vocal group who achieved a phenomenal success with Motown Records during the 1960s and 1970s. Known for their choreography, distinct harmonies, and flashy wardrobe, the group was highly influential to the evolution of R&B and soul music.

With their tailored suits and detailed choreography, the Temptations set the bar high for male soul and R&B groups of the period. Before the Temptations became popular, most black vocal groups were rough, high-energy acts featuring vocals that were more raw and dance movements that were more improvisational.

Having sold tens of millions of albums, the Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history. As of 2015, the Temptations continue to perform with one original member, Otis Williams, still in the lineup.

This "Ultimate Collection" CD contains 20 tracks in all which were recorded by the Temptations (with accompanying musicians) in the years from 1964-1975. Three of my favourite tunes are - Ball Of Confusion, Papa Was A Rollin' Stone, and My Girl.... (*Watch music-video*)
