That two of the most successful vocal groups of the '60s were set down for posterity on an LP borders on a small miracle from a musical point of view. From an economic standpoint, however, the recording contract of The Temptations with Motown was a flop. Although the group earned enormous sums of money through fees and royalties, the record company only paid them the pathetic sum of $500 weekly until the group fell apart due to restrictive policies. But the frustration over the record company bosses is neither heard from The Temptations nor from Diana Ross, all of whom belt out the songs as if their lives depended on it. There's plenty of variety too, with all the different arrangements such as the profoundly bass-driven "Try It Baby" and the orchestral "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me." And there are side glances in the direction of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell ("Ain't No Mountain High Enough") and Stevie Wonder ("A Place In The Sun") too. All in all, this album is an inspired mixture of soul and easy listening, which is spiced with a touch of showbiz.
