Despite not being an uptempo dancer or an extended Whitfield-produced "epic", TAKE A LOOK AROUND is one of my Temptations favourites.

RIP

RIP - given his stature in the Motown camp, not a widely reported passing it appears to me.

That is indeed a very sad news. Sad

I am currently expending my collection of Temptations after hearing 'Psychedelic soul'. I strongly recommend this double CD set. One of the best compilation I have in my music collection. The type of disc I would consider if I had to bring only ten on a desert island Smile Included a lot of extended mixes.

Although I had almost every track on CD already, I thought I'd have a punt on "Psychedelic Soul" (only found out about it in mid-2017) as some of the extended versions were missing from my collection.

An excellent set, well worth having... Cool Cool
