"Sometimes, these budget priced Motown Legends Collections can seem haphazardly packaged, though you can sometimes hear songs that are very hard to find. This collection by the Temptations includes 2 big hits "Just My Imagination" & "Beauty Is Only Skin Deep" along with another smaller hits "Its Growing" which is one of their more underrated singles from their classic period. We are also treated to the beautiful, slow version of "For Once In My Life" sung by the late Paul Williams. The song is very nicely orchestrated and not overdone at all. The remainder of the songs are from mostly late 70's albums, when the group wasn't having a lot of chart success. The gorgeous "A Song For You" is included and is a definite treat. At least 3 of the songs were taken from their 1976, hard to find "Temptations do the Temptations" album ("I'm On Fire" "Let Me Count the Ways" & "There's No Stopping"). "I'm On Fire" is a nice quiet storm ballad. "There's No Stopping" is an uptempo dance number which has somewhat silly lyrics, but is very entertaining. Other tracks like "Darling Stand by Me" and "If
I Don't Love You This Way" are nice as well. The criticism that could be made about the 70's songs is that they don't sound that different from what the current groups like the O'Jays, Spinners or Harold Melvin & Blue Notes were having great success with at the time. Of course, while those groups are all very talented, they were all very much influenced by the music from Motown's classic 1960's period. Basically, if you are a Temptations/Motown fan and aren't up to shelling out big bucks for the Emperors of Soul boxed set, this gives a good overview of some of the group's lesser heard material."

"I MUST SAY WITH ALL HONESTY THAT I LOVE THIS CD. SOME OF THE SONG WERE NOT THAT FAMOUS, HOWEVER, IT DOES'NT DEMINISH ANY OF THE VOCALS. THERE IS A SONG ON THIS DISC CALLED" I'M ON FIRE (BODY SONG) I HAD NEVER HEARD THIS BEFORE AND ONCE IT WAS INJECTED INTO MY SOUL IT WAS AS GREAT OR EVEN BETTER THAT SOME OF THE MOST MEMORABLE ONE'S. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS TO ALL TEMPTATION LOVER'S"
