Eddie Kendrick's lead falsetto is wonderful here. One of my favorites here is the upbeat "Paradise:" one other song comes to mind while hearing this song: "Sherry Baby" from the Four Seasons, but the Temptations' song, as similar as the tempo and tone may be, is a beautiful original: Melvin Franklin's Bass opens up the song, and Eddie leads this beautiful doo wop winner.
It is a humble, classy, charming, and innocent song about getting with a love interest. Paul Williams really rocks on "Farewell My Love," and as with any other Temp who takes lead, he handles it with easy finesse, and he shares some leads with again wonderful Eddie.
Eddie again leads on the slow drag ballad "Dream Come True" with dreamy doo wop harmonies and sweet strings and easy tempo. The minor drawback of this album is the lack of two gorgeous doo-wop ballads, the heart wrenching "Tear Stained Letter," and the sad-then-hopeful "My Pillow," but back then LP's had limited time space I guess. Whatever; this early collective of fine Temptations' songs is more than worth its weight in any precious stone and is priceless in my opinion.
One person found this helpful. My favorite Temptations-lineup is not the classic lineup. To our lost, with the exception of Otis Williams, they have all died.
This is an outstanding album. With Paul on the lead and the other four providing the background vocals, it is art of the highest form. It speaks to the heart of broken love of a man who only discovers what he has lost after it is too late to get it back. Their treatment on these two songs is special and it tells the listener that this group was special and greatness was only a matter of time.
One must remember that Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks were in their early 20's and the other three were in their late teens.
Gordy's "Just Let Me Know" features the classic Tempts way of doing a song with the lead singer, in this case Paul, with the other four members being voices to sing with or sing against in a type of group harmony never achieved. What the original Temptations could do with their voices is equivalent to what the King Cole Trio could do with their instruments and Band Leader Cole's voice. Their voices were incomparable. This album showcases what a great lead singer the late Paul Williams was, a fact of which many Temptations' fans are unaware.
As someone once wrote that he had a voice for the ages. Their other selections should have been Top 40 hits, especially in light of what masquerades as hits today. When you listen to "Meet The Temptations," you will get religion. And Meet The Temptations musically.
My husband and I both our Temptations fans. We decided to go through our vinyl and cassette tapes and replace them with CDs. Weekend copied it digitally on to USB that we can use in our cars or other devices. This is a good compilation of their music and we were very pleased. I LOVE this album the most out of all of them because these were the early years with Paul as the lead singer and he had such a beautiful voice. I especially love the song "your wonderful love". This album is just "OK," but not outstanding.
