I went to a temptations concert a few years back just a couple. whenever the temptations play in the detroit area mama rose has free tickets and the group would always let everyone know that she is in the house and she gets a standing ovation. but this concert was different in that Otis Stopped the concert basically and personally thanked mama not just for giving the temptations and the world the greatest bass singer who ever lived. he also thanked her for giving him the very best friend anyone in the world could ever have he talked and shared his heart with her and everyone there and the impact that Melvin had on him not just musically but personally and he had almost everyone in there crying. I watched as couples and family crying took a little time to say i love you to each other. I am sharing this simply because i was touched mama rose was touched most people don't even realize that if you read the cd notes from some of the cds after melvin passed away the group continued thanking her for her impact o ...

ON THIS DATE (47 YEARS AGO) June 13, 1967 - The Temptations: "You're My Everything" b/w "I've Been Good To You" (Gordy G-7063) 45 single is released in the US. "You're My Everything" is a 1967 hit single recorded by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. It is the first of three singles (and four songs) to be co-written for the group by Motown songwriter Roger Penzabene. It reached number three on the U.S. R&B chart and number six on the U.S. Pop chart. It would be the third single from the group's 1967 album The Temptations with a Lot o' Soul. This is one of the small handful of A-sides led by Eddie Kendricks since David Ruffin (who leads on the bridge and ad-libs on the outro) became the Tempt's lead singer, the last one was the 1966 song "Get Ready". As the song's main narrator, Kendricks tells his girl just how much she really means to him. Now, I was blessed the day I found you, Gonna build my whole world around you, You're everything good girl, and you're all that matters to me There is real ...

LIVE FROM BOWMAN GYM - THE TEMPTATIONS ON WGRE! February 7, 1969, Greencastle, Ind. - A sellout crowd of DePauw University students didn't need much to "get ready" for a night of music from The Temptations. The Motown favorites performed an 8:15 p.m. concert in Bowman Gym this evening as part of DePauw's "Winter Weekend." The Temptations -- whose hits include The Way You Do the Things You Do, My Girl, Ain't Too Proud to Beg, I Wish It Would Rain, and their new single, Cloud Nine -- were selected as the result of a campus opinion poll which ranked the group as the top choice of DePauw students. The immediate sellout, with all $5 tickets being sold to DePauw students, proves that "if you give the students what they want they'll support it," says Union Building Senior Board President Russ Sklenicka. The Temptations are: David Ruffin, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, and Otis Williams. Join WGRE DJ Bob Crane deep in the bowels of Bowman Gym as he interviews Paul Williams of the Temptations.

ABOUT THE SONG "I WISH IT RAIN" The song is one of the most melancholy in the Temptations repertoire, with lead singer David Ruffin delivering, in a pained voice, the story of a heartbroken man who wants to hide his sorrow. His woman has just left him, and he wishes that it would start raining, to hide the tears falling down his face because "a man ain't supposed to cry". Accompanying Ruffin's mourning vocal are the vocals his bandmates Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin, Paul Williams, and Otis Williams, the subdued instrumentation of The Funk Brothers studio band, and, courtesy of Whitfield, sound effects depicting the "sunshine and blue skies", with the sound of chirping seagulls, and the sound of thunder and rain described in the song. Producer Norman Whitfield devised much of the musical structure of the song, with former Motown artist Barrett Strong composing the song's signature piano intro on a piano with only ten working keys. Motown staff writer Roger Penzabene provided the song's lyri ...

More than 30 years ago the Original Temptations reunited with Eddie Kendricks, David Ruffin & Dennis Edwards for the Smash Hit on the Reunion 1982 featuring Rick James Standing on the Top. I was hoping that Otis, Ron Tyson would reunite again for a song or even tour with Dennis Edwards along with Paul Williams Jr. This would be a dream to see all of them as one of their albums states " Together Again".

Reflection time! I got caught up on Hitsville USA last night knowing I had to hit the road today after being away from the office last week. As many times as I have seen the story about the Temptations, I saw it from a much deeper place last night, and it was probably because I could relate to Otis and Williams' story so well. Otis had led the Temps through some turbulent time, based on a hard work ethic and values, However as soon as things were going great, Satan took over. First with David Ruffin, then Paul ??? and then Eddie Kendricks and finally Dennis Edwards. Guess what folks after it was all said and done, guess who remains standing as the only living original Temptation and is still performing with the Temptations. Otis knew that everyone brought value to their success, and as long as everyone used the talent/gift God gave them, they were successful. As soon as David Ruffin began to think that because his gift was that of the lead singer, he had the gift of administration, he did not, and ult ...
Eddie Kendricks- Intimate Friends. FWB has never been done so well.
This is my favorite version of this song. It's the most beautiful version. The "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" intro is from Floyd Cramer's medley. First released August, 1980, on the Temps. Alb. "Give Love At Christmas." The single was released in 82. The lineup for this version was: Otis Williams, Dennis Edwards, Melvin Franklin (born David Melvin English), Richard Street, Glenn Carl Leonard. Yes, Yes, Yes, there was an earlier version on the album "Christmas Card". Released in 1970. The lineup for that version was Dennis Edwards, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, Otis Williams. Completely different rendition though. Categoría Música
I was watching the movie about the Temptations yesterday with my son. It seems that after firing David Ruffin that he came back clean and sober wanting ONE more chance. I have to wonder what " IF " he had been given that one last chance. Who knows maybe, just maybe he would have made good of it. I'm glad that the Lord never gives up on us even though at times the world will. People and connections make a difference and hearts who are willing to see the best and the possibilities. We live in an ever increasing " throw away " world. People dismiss each other now days via text and emails. never even having looked deep into the eyes, let alone the soul. I keep saying this started with the Bic throw away pen. He did this song after he was fired from the Temptations and Eddie Kendricks joined him. how ironic the name of this song. You know he became heart broken. It took the Temps 2 years to get a real hit and it came from Smokey Robinson. who also had his dire challenges with drugs at one point bu ...

A Song for You is a 1975 album by The Temptations. It features two R&B hits: "Happy People" (originally intended for recording by its authors, The Commodores), and "Shakey Ground", one of the group's final R&B songs. The album features then-lead singer Dennis Edwards on the title track written by Leon Russell. Also featured are Richard Street and Melvin Franklin on the track "Firefly". A Song for You features a familiar device of the time used to exhibit the versatility of '70s soul groups: one side features up-tempo cuts and the other side focuses on ballads. Several songs on side one such as "Glass House" and "Shakey Ground" featured P-Funk-backed dance grooves and even a writing credit for former Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel, while side two had tracks such as "I'm a Bachelor" and "Memories", which showcased a more subdued style of soul. This was also the final album by Eddie Kendricks's replacement Damon Harris, who was let go after this album. He would rejoin his Young Tempts bandmates as Impact. ...

Please come to hear the wonderful ministry of John Amato on Sunday, January 12th at 9:30am and 6:00pm. John Amato has been blowing his SAX since he was 7 years old. As a boy growing up in Detroit, Michigan, he was greatly influenced musically by rhythm and blues, big bands, and jazz. John has had the opportunity to record on various Motown Records. However, his obsession with success also led him to a life of drug addiction, which began at age 13. Cocaine and alcohol became his constant companions for the next 18 years. Driven by a desire to "make it big," John continued to perform in concerts with B.B. King, Eddie Kendricks, Jerry Butler, Curtis Mayfield, Johnny Taylor, and many others through the years. In 1977, after spending 7 years on the Las Vegas/Tahoe-Reno show circuit and overseas on USO tours, John Amato came to the Crossroads in his life. As he lay in a hospital bed with some of his internal organs eaten away as a result of the drug use, he cried out to GOD for help. Years of drugs and alcohol ...

Mike Post was a solid competitive arm wrestler??? Thank you Casey Kasem (this morning on AT40, part 1 of the Top 100 singles of 1975. Sadly, very few stations expand their slot one hour for these special 4 hour editions, I missed the first 12 songs). Looking at the cue sheet, I'll hear for the first time today: Eddie Kendricks -- Shoeshine Boy, Joe Simon's Get Up Get Down (Get Up on the Floor) and Paul Anka's I Don't Like to Sleep Alone. I could do without that Anka tune, I'm sure.
