The Temptations moved into world of jazzy pre-rock pop, and showed that great singers can handle anything. While many soul fans were surprised that they issued an album with versions of "Ol' Man River," "Somewhere," and "Taste of Honey," they were hooked once they heard it. This recording was another indication of how much Berry Gordy wanted to show mainstream audiences that Motown acts were versatile. ~ Ron Wynn

I LISTENED TO THIS CD AS SOON AS I GOT IT. I LOVED THE SONGS VERY MUCH. TO TELL THE TRUTH I LIKE ANYTHING THE ORGINIAL TEMPTATIONS RECORDED.

What can you say about the Temptations. This is a very nice CD with a twist of Broadway sounds and some of the classic rendition of great songwriters music. One of my favorite Temptation CDs. Not to be missed!
