Summary
  • A biography of the Motown group, who burst upon the music scene in the early sixties with five-part harmonies and synchronized dance steps that became their trademark
  • "The frank, revealing story of Motown's legendary super group, told by the group's founder. The Temptations burst onto the music scene in the early sixties with velvety smooth five-part harmonies and synchronized dance steps that were to become their trademark. But from the start, nothing about The Temptations' look or sound was as casual and carefree as their songs seemed to imply. Violent internal disputes decimated their ranks; drugs, alcohol, and suicide disrupted their lives--but through it all The Temptations kept singing, triumphing over adversity, earning one platinum record after another. In [this book] Otis Williams tells about the lean days and the fat, about Berry Gordy's renowned 'Motown U.' and the colleagues he got to know so intimately: Gladys Knight and the Pips, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, and especially The Temptations' sister group, The Primettes--later to be known as The Supremes. From the founding member of the group that still plays to millions of fans the world over, a man who never gave up and never gave in, Temptations is a candid, electric, cautionary tale--the untold story."--Jacket
