Editorial Reviews

For the first time on DVD, this collection offers the Temptations' very best Ed Sullivan Show performances. Included here is the group's very first appearance in May 1967, in which they performed a medley of hits including "My Girl" and "(I Know) I'm Losing You." Other songs featured are the group's No. 1 hit "I Can't Get Next to You," a playful version of "You've Made Me So Very Happy," the Top Ten hit "Psychedelic Shack," and the 1969 hit single "Runaway Child, Running Wild" with Dennis Edwards replacing David Ruffin. The Temptations' last performance on The Ed Sullivan Show (1971) is also included, broadcast just a few months before the show went off the air, in which they performed "Get Ready" and their No. 1 hit "Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)."

There are no liner notes so here are the original air dates for each of the 12 full length performances included on this excellent DVD. All of the performances are in chronological order (except for the two Bonus performances) with no edits or narration. Most include Ed's original intro as well as his shaking hands with the group afterwards.

1. June 28, 1967: Medley: Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue)/All I Need/My Girl/ (I Know) I'm Losing You. First appearance of the group on the Sullivan show. Previously only an edit was available on DVD/VHS which cut the first half of the medley out.
2. November 19, 1967: Don't Look Back. With Paul Williams singing lead.
3. November 19, 1967: Medley: Get Ready/Stop! In The Name Of Love/My Girl/Baby Love/ (I Know) I'm Losing You. The Supremes and Tempts take turns singing each others' hits with the Supremes starting off. My Girl becomes My Guy (but not the Mary Wells hit) when the Supremes sing it. Previously an edit of just the final song was available on DVD/VHS.
4. February 2, 1969: Runaway Child, Running Wild. Dennis Edwards replaces David Ruffin. Each of the five members gets to sing lead.
5. September 28, 1969: I Can't Get Next To You.
6. April 5, 1970: You've Made Me So Very Happy. The group turns this song into a dance number with five female dancers paired up with each member.
7. April 5, 1970: Psychedelic Shack.
8. January 31, 1971: Get Ready. From their final appearance on the Sullivan show.
9. January 31, 1971: Medley: Ain't No Mountain/I'll Be There/My Sweet Lord. Medley of recent chart hits by other artists. First time ever on DVD.
10. January 31, 1971: Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me). Eddie's swan song.
Bonus:
11. November 19, 1967: Hello Young Lovers.

An absolute must for Temptation fans. Sure its dated, hell they have been around for Fifty years, but they are the Temptations. Viewing this DVD, one comes to the realization about how young they were yet they were as polished and professional as any group you've ever seen. All of these men were originally from the deep south and migrated to Motown where they became the R & B standard for vocal groups. Their voices and harmonies are simply exquisite, their legendary trademark steps speak for themselves. They were having a ball, they were good and they knew it. I see where Amazon is advertising this set as 21 of their performances....not really, more like twelve several are the same performance but medleys of songs. This DVD set is great as an historical record of time past and find the Tempts in rare form.

This would have been an exemplary set if we had film of them rehearsing for the show, sound checks and interviews during the same time frame but I guess we'll have to settle for this truncated version of the many events. Although there were some personally disturbing moments like when Ed Sullivan continually referred to them as boys and Smokey Robinson who doesn't appear in the videos but sings a voice over from one of his performances on Ed Sullivan...tacky. I remember these performances well and they reflect a lot of what the world was like then and now. One of the most telling things about this video is that sharp eyed Temptation fans can see the deterioration of Temptation Paul Williams. They'll also get to see the Temptations transition from David Ruffin to Dennis Edwards without missing a beat. Often imitated but never duplicated Motown's Mighty Men The "Temptin Temptations".

Ed Sullivan was always noted for putting on great acts. The Temptations were one of the groups that were a main stay on his show. This DVD bring back fond memories of a time when artist put their heart and soul into their songs. The Temptations were always dressed to impress and their songs had real meaning. One thing I admired about them, anyone of the members could have been a lead singer. Thats how talented they are. For those who are thinking about getting this dvd, GET IT !! I'm giving it a THUMBS UP and adding another great classic to my growing collections. "Temptations forever"

The Temptations were one of a kind. I've been waiting for this DVD for years. The Temptations, along with other Motown artists, contributed to the world of music immensely!
To this day, they continue to captivate millions of people around the world with their voices, unique attire and their dance choreographies. "Just My Imagination" is an all-time classic and their medley with the Supremes was unforgettable! Now that is worth the cost of the DVD alone!

I'm glad I saw this video advertised. I always liked the Temps music, but don't think I ever saw them on TV. We have the DVD of their movie, which was very well done - wonderful acting. Don't know how many times we have watched it. But to see the actual singers doing their songs is just amazing. The DVD is very good - color & sound great. We saw the Temptations at a dinner-theater several years ago in PA. Not the original ones, of course, but the group touring now. Only one was a true Temp from the past. Still enjoyed it. I really like this DVD!!
