Temptations founder and leader Otis Williams keeps the music alive for 50 years! The Temptations are one of the most iconic bands in the history of American music. Indeed, they are an institution noted for their precise choreography and blend of R&B vocal sensibilities. A continuous line up of 5 highly talented male singers working together as a vocal powerhouse has propelled the Temptations thru out their
50-year history. With a focus on the vocal ensemble, rather than a lead singer, 12 talented singers have come and gone thru the ranks of the band, and (founding original member) Otis Williams has continued to keep the Temptations sound alive and at the top of the charts.
The songs speak for themselves: “My Girl,” “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “Get Ready,” “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” Losing You,” “Cloud Nine,” “Just My Imagination,” “Ball Of Confusion,” and so many, many more…over 30 Top Ten and #1 songs, and still counting!
The Four Tops’ first Motown hit, “Baby I Need Your Loving” in 1964, made them stars and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch),” a no. 1 R&B and Pop smash in 1965, is one of Motown’s longest-running chart toppers; it was quickly followed by a longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song” (no. 2 R&B/no. 5 pop). Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy: the no. 1 “Reach Out I’ll Be There,” “Standing In The Shadows Of Love” (no. 2 R&B/no. 6 pop) and “Bernadette” (no. 3 R&B/no. 4 pop)—an extraordinary run of instant H-D-H classics. Other Tops hits include “Ask The Lonely,” “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over),” “Something About You,” “You Keep Running Away,” “7-Rooms Of Gloom,” “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got,” and many more.
