Recorded- Spring 1961- January 1964

The Temptations' 1964 debut album, Meet The Temptations, unveils the iconic "Classic Five" lineup with David Ruffin, solidifying the group's place in Motown history. Merging The Primes and the Distants, they faced early challenges, yet Smokey Robinson's production yielded soulful hits like "The Way You Do The Things You Do" and "I Want a Love I Can See." Despite lineup shifts and Ruffin's eventual departure, The Temptations' legacy soared, making them one of pop music's most celebrated male vocal groups. This album, a snapshot of their early sound, reflects the group's evolution and enduring impact on the music industry, setting the stage for their illustrious career. Chart Positions: #95 U.S. Billboard Charts.
