Featured for the first time on DVD, 16 classic full-length performances from the Temptations on American television appearances during Motown’s golden era. This is the first official DVD anthology of classic archival television performances by one of the most successful singing groups of all time. Beginning with a stunning 1965 performance of “The Way You Do The Things You Do” and concluding with the epic “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone,” filmed in concert in September of 1972 (two weeks before it debuted on the charts). Also included hardly-seen color footage of the group in the studio recording “Sorry Is A Sorry Word” with the Funk Brothers and Motown personnel and Eddie Kendricks’ final filmed performance with the original group.
This DVD includes a wealth of vintage performances with re-mastered sound and video. Interspersed between the songs, Otis Williams (the only surviving member of the original Temptations) reminisces about the history of the group in an insightful 25 minute interview filmed exclusively for this DVD. You also get a 24-page booklet with essay by Grammy®-winning author Rob Bowman.
