The Temptations - Classic Soul Hits

Formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1960, The Temptations have one of the longest tenures on Motown, second only to Stevie Wonder. The group, known for its recognizable choreography, distinct harmonies, and onstage suits, were as influential to soul as the Beatles were to rock and pop. Having sold over 22 million albums, The Temptations are one of the most successful groups in music history and were the definitive male vocal group of the 1960s. 'The Temptations - Classic Soul Hits' is set for UK release on 3rd March 2008.

Over the course of their career, the Temptations have had number one hit records on both sides of the Atlantic. Smash hits included here on this collection include "How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)", "My Girl" and "I Can't Get Next To You".

The quintet were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999 and in 2001, their album from the previous year, Ear-Resistible won the group its third Grammy - this time for Best Traditional Vocal R&B Performance. Three classic Temptations songs, "My Girl", "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" and "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone", were included in The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll - a list of the most influential songs that helped shape Rock and Roll as we know it today. All three songs can be found on this collection.

So enduring is The Temptations' popularity, they are planning a nationwide UK tour for 2008.
