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.

10. January 31, 1971: Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me). Eddie's swan song.
11. November 19, 1967: Hello Young Lovers.Read more ›
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".
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!
