Let yourself give in to "Temptation"

Or should I say The Temptations who will be interviewed on stage and performing at Washtenaw Community College's Towsley Auditorium this Friday, December 14. This legendary Motown vocal quartet's current lineup features original member Otis Williams along with Bruce Williamson, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, and Joe Herndon. The group just released the CD Back to Front, a collection of soul classics ranging from Barry White's "Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up" and Sam and Dave's "Hold On, I'm Comin'" to the Staple Singers' "Respect Yourself." Unfortunately, tickets are sold out but you can view a simulcast. Call 973-3450 for more information. To re-familiarize yourself with some of their work and take a nostalgia trip to Motown, check out some of the Temptations' cd's at the Library.

You know, as much as I love The Temptations and the entire Motown Sound, I just don't see the point of seeing them without The Funk Brothers behind them. Oh, ever since Berry Gordy abandoned Detroit, Motown just hasn't been the same.

But I don't know about the rest of you all, but once I get a free weekend, I'm grabbing the Museum Adventure Pass for the Motown Museum downtown.
