This Detroit outfit never got their big break & judging by this smoking slab of prime funk, it’s a complete mystery how success eluded them. Oozing with the very same kind of grooves found in class acts like Brick, Slave, Cameo & the Kay-Gees, this…

A masterpiece in psychedelic soul from The Temptations — perhaps the most perfectly realized album from their years working with Norman Whitfield! The set’s awash in that bottom-heavy, rumbling funk mode that Whitfield brought to the group at the end of the 60s — served…
