A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations – perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set's awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s – served up in bold tracks that push the group's vocals to a whole new level, and which bring in a more righteous sound than anyone might have expected previously from Motown! The centerpiece here is the amazing "Runaway Child" – a really extended number that has all the political soul of a Curtis Mayfield tune – and other titles include "Cloud Nine", "Don't Let Him Take Your Love From Me", "Love Is A Hurtin Thing", "I Gotta Find A Way", "I Need Your Lovin", and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Wonderful work from the early solo years of Teddy Pendergrass! The record's a monstrous mix of mellow soul and sophisticated tunes – one that pushes Teddy way past his earlier role in Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, into mature male soul territory that few others could match! The sound ... CD
