In 1976 the Temptations made little impact on the music scene. Their polished sound of the '60s and the soulful flair of the early '70s was no where to be found. Instead, the Temptations were embracing songs that lacked the luster for which they were known. The sole release from this album was "Up the Creek (Without a Paddle)." In spite of the tight vocals, sizzling horns and solid production, "Up the Creek" like most of this album, lacks that melodious fever. It managed to peak at 21 on the Billboard R&B charts. "Paradise" and "Dream World (Wings of Love)" both ooze with warmth and much crossover appeal; still they both are no challenge to the talents of the Temptations. That soulful splendor that was known to accompany a Temptations album is absent. The label probably suspected this album was not worthy of much attention and demonstrated that with just one release.

Curtis Mayfield, in a League of his Own

Aesthete guitar player worshiped by Jimi Hendrix, extraordinary falsetto singer revered by Prince, and a brilliant songwriter, Curtis Mayfield treated melodies as a master sculptor. His songs melded funk, gospel and soul together. Twenty years after his death, his politically charged music is still relevant and well-suited to describe America under Donald Trump.

Motown in 10 Albums

The leading authority in pop-soul music, Motown, has just turned sixty years old. This incredible record label founded by Berry Gordy produced hit after hit for Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Rick James and so many other musicians. Motown was first known through its singles, the popular music format at the time, but it soon adapted from 1965 onwards as albums began to emerge. The good old vinyl LP totally transformed the label that called itself “the sound of young America” and transformed its artists’ careers along with it.

Verve Records, the sound of America

Norman Granz hit the nail on the head when he defined his label as “the sound of America”. Admittedly, it was last century. And granted, it mainly just stuck to jazz. But even today, with a catalogue including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Charlie Parker, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Lester Young, Stan Getz, Oscar Peterson and countless others, Verve represents one of the most important musical ventures of the twentieth century.
