Hear To Tempt You / Bare Back - Temptations (The)

Hear To Tempt You / Bare Back
•    At Motown almost from its inception, the legendary group The Temptations made their first-ever move to a new recording home in 1977, signing with Atlantic Records and cutting two albums for the label.  At the time, the line-up consisted of original members Melvin Franklin and Otis Williams along with Richard Street (who joined the group in 1972) and newcomers Glenn Leonard and Louis Price (respectively replacing Damon Harris and Dennis Edwards).

•    Released towards the end of 1977, HEAR TO TEMPT YOU saw the quintet record for the first time in Philadelphia where the team of Norman Harris, Ron Baker and Earl Young masterminded the sessions, working with some of the top arrangers, songwriters and musicians (including future Temptation Ron Tyson) responsible for the then-ever-popular ‘Philly’ sound. A US Top 40 R&B album, the LP spawned two charted singles, ‘Think For Yourself’ and ‘In A Lifetime.’

•    For their second and final album for Atlantic, The Temptations turned to two brothers who had also been part of the original Motown hit factory, Brian and Eddie Holland.  A US Top 50 R&B album, BARE BACK (with its revealing back cover art) contained eight tunes co-penned by the Hollands with members of the group contributing the song, ‘I See My Child’ (co-written with Benjamin Wright, their musical director); Atlantic released three singles from the album, two of which – the title track and ‘Ever Ready Love’ reached the US Top 50 R&B charts.

•    Both HEAR TO TEMPT YOU and BARE BACK are being reissued for the first time outside Japan; notes by renowned US writer Kevin Goins include quotes from both Glenn Leonard and Louis Price.
