5/17/17: The Temptations  ” Don’t Look Back”

I have always been a big Temptations fan.  Grew up listening to those guys.  Always admired their incredible harmonies and unparalleled showmanship.

Especially, those “original 5.”  Otis Williams, David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin, and Paul Williams.  These days, Otis is the only one still alive, and he’s keeping the group going, and they’re still good.  I saw them not too long ago at DPAC.  But back in the 60’s and early 70’s—those were the glory days.  I had an album entitled, “Temptations Live” and I must have played it a thousand times.  It was recorded at the Roostertail in Detroit in 1966.  My favorite song on the album has always been “Don’t Look Back,” with the late Paul Williams taking the lead vocals.  If you ask me, he took the tune to a whole new level.  So here it is, #8 on my list of “Favorite Live Performances.”  It ain’t exactly rock n roll, but if you love music, you can appreciate it!  Here’s some live Motown Magic for you…..”The Music In My Head” on 97-9 The Hill….WCHL.
