The Temptations - Voice Your Choice

The Temptations, from Detroit, Michigan, became major recording stars with Motown and appeared on their Gordy label imprint. The core of the vocal group consisted of Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, Otis Williams, and Elbridge Bryant. Over the years, there were several personnel changes that included the arrival of David Ruffin, replacing Elbridge Bryant. Eventually Ruffin left and was replaced by Dennis Edwards. And so on.

No matter who was in the group, they were amazingly successful on the R&B and Pop charts, scoring 18 Top Ten hits on the Billboard Hot 100. They also achieved 11 Gold and 6 Platinum Records. Impressive!

Treasure Island Oldies is pleased to present The Temptations on Voice Your Choice. Cast your vote for either It's Growing or Psychedelic Shack. I'll play the winning song on next week's show.
