Called by Billboard Magazine “the greatest R&B group of all time,” The Temptations began their musical life in Detroit in the early sixties and first became stars with the 1964 Smokey Robinson written-and-produced “The Way You Do The Things You Do.”
Beyond the fabulous singing, The Temps became known for smooth stepping and flawless presentations. The Temptations Walk became a staple of American style. Flair, flash and class. Millions of fans saw their Temptations as cultural heroes.
With 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members The Four Tops started their string of hits in 1964 with the Motown classic “Baby I Need Your Loving” followed by the #1 R&B and Pop smash “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)” and longtime favorite, “It’s The Same Old Song.”
