An augmented two-disc recapitulation of the mammoth triple-vinyl ANTHOLOGY released in the mid '70s, this 44-track set is the best place to start for any Temptations fan. Collecting all of their chart singles from "The Way You Do the Things You Do" through the early '80s collaboration with Rick James, "Standing on the Top," this is like a one-band history of soul. The Temptations had a remarkable ability to change with the times, moving from the slick soul of the Holland-Dozier-Holland years to the grittier sound of the Norman Whitfield era and from the sweet-voiced Eddie Kendricks to the growly David Ruffin and Dennis Edwards. The tunes speak for themselves. There was no better vocal group in pop music history than the Temptations, and ANTHOLOGY is the most concise and satisfying way to discover their magic.
