About The Temptations

The Temptations would loosely form as a duo started by childhood friends Eddie Kendricks and Paul Williams, The two mostly interacted through church functions, but runaway ambitions to form a famous doo-wop group would eventually lead to the recruitment of Kell Osborne and Wiley Waller, and the genesis of the Cavaliers - an early iteration of what would later become The Temptations, one of the most widely known and loved vocalist groups of all time. The quartet would move across the United States, picking up followings wherever the went including a rabid fanbase in the greater Detroit area. The band would go through various name changes, including the Primes then later The Distants, recording various commercial hits with smaller record labels.

The Distants would collaborate with a variety of doo-wop groups, eventually auditioning for Motown records and starting a fresh with a lineup that consisted of Otis Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, and Elbridge Bryant. This group would form the first official iteration of The Temptations, with the group immediately getting to work in the studio with a flurry of hit releases that grew the band's profile all across the United States. Despite a growing presence, the band struggled with mainstream success, considering various name changes before finding a muse in legendary musician Smokey Robinson. Frustrated with a lack of success, Bryant would leave the band in a blaze of bottle smashing glory, and would be replaced by band follower David Ruffin, who became a key piece of The Temptations lineup.

By 1964, success would start to toll for The Temptations, with them releasing a flurry of top ten and top twenty hits that would lay the groundwork for a decade of non stop mainstream and critical success. They would be featured all across major American media, including spots on The Hollywood Palace and the Ed Sullivan Show, along with a constant performance schedule that put them into the biggest and hottest music venues that 1960s America had to offer. Despite an ever rotating lineup of producers, band members, and songwriters (and the eventual departure of David Ruffin), the band would continue to maintain their signature doo-wop sound while also incorporating elements of soul and psychedelic influences, along the way making non stop trips to the biggest award ceremonies and becoming pivotal pieces of authentic musical Americana. Today, they retain their position on as the ultimate doo-wop vocal group, underscored by three decades of hit success and a constant tour schedule that sells out amphitheatres all across the world.


Previous Hits

The band's big break would come with 1965's The Temptations Sing Smokey, a #1 US R&B charting album that would also climb to an impressive #35 on the Billboard 200. The album was produced by the visionary Smokey Robinson, and today holds an A rating from Entertainment Weekly as well as a near perfect four and a half star from the music critics at AllMusic. The album would spawn one of the most addictive Temptations hits to date, the ubiquitous single "My Girl", as well as the upbeat swooning of their second single "It's Growing".

The band would cement decade spanning success with 1972's All Directions, released on Gordy Records and produced by friend of the band Norman Whitfield. The album again received a coveted near perfect score from AllMusic, and the single "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" would garner not one, not two, but three Grammy wins for the band and its production. The album also featured the timeless hits "Mother Nature" as well as the #27 charting "Funky Music Sho' Nuff Turns Me On".


Trivia

One of the reasons for David Ruffin's departure was his insistence on being held on a pedestal above the other Temptations. Amongst his demands was that The Temptations be renamed to David Ruffin & The Temptations, and that he ride to shows separately in his own private limo.
