classic psychedelic soul. When this album was originally released in early '69, it was a gamble. Could the Temptations, known as smooth melodic crooners of love songs, successfully reinvent themselves as contemporaries of Sly and the Family Stone, Jimi Hendrix, Funkadelic, and the Chambers Brothers, with their psychedelic rock and soul sounds? The answer was an emphatic yes. This masterpiece by produced by Norman Whitfield, the most soulful producer to ever come out of Motown.
