Share this article

    (January 28, 2022) They are the most iconic soul music group ever, and The Temptations are now belatedly celebrating their 60th anniversary (it was postposed by COVID) with the brand new album Temptations 60. Working with a myriad of producers, including Narada Michael Walden and Smokey Robinson, Otis Williams and company deliver a tasty 12 song collection that should please their longtime fans.

    Williams and longtime falsetto lead Ron Tyson play a larger role in the songwriting on Temptations 60, and the album mixes nostalgic looks back (“When We Were Kings,” "Come On"), more sobering looks at the world of today (“Time For The People,” “Let It Reign”), and of course, lots of odes to romantic.

    The Tempts are in excellent vocal form, with Tyson, Terry Weeks and now-former lead Mario Corbino sharing leads effectively, and group harmonies being right on point.
