All around entertainment legends, The Temptations, stand as not only the greatest vocal group of Motown Records’ golden era empire; the quintet is indisputably the greatest singing group of all-time. Setting the bar in the standard bearing stratosphere for what a group should sing like, look like, dance like and artistically pilot the planet through triumphs and catastrophes like, The Temptations are world renowned ambassadors of soul, conscience and style.
From 16 million selling LPs, 14 #1 R&B singles, three Grammys plus induction into the Grammy Hall of Fame, membership in The Vocal Group Hall of Fame, induction into The Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame, a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a TV miniseries classic, and the most great vocalists to spring from one group – Detroit’s Temptin’ Temptations are still here, and still going strong. With 43 Top 10s clocked between the 60s and90s, they are hailed as Billboard’s Top All-Time R&B/Hip Hop Artist.
Among the most popular of their nearly 100 R&B charted songs are “My Girl,” “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “Since I Lost My Baby,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me (with The Supremes),” “Cloud Nine,” “Psychedelic Shack,” “Ball of Confusion,” “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone,” “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me),” “Shakey Ground,” “Treat Her Like a Lady,” “Stay," and their near definitive rendition of the Christmas standard “Silent Night.”
These and many others have been covered by artists across stylistic borders in blues (Al Green), rock (Rolling Stones and Anthrax), jazz (Grover Washington Jr. and Cassandra Wilson), pop (Hall & Oates and Bette Midler), reggae (Peter Tosh), country (Dolly Parton and Glen Campbell) and many others. As a group that is equal parts thrilling showmen and consummate singers, The Temptations have influenced several generations of singing groups from Blue Magic and The Dramatics to The Jacksons and The Sylvers to New Edition and *NSYNC.
