I love the Delfonics, Sylistics, Blue Magic and the many other falsetto groups of that time - and they are such super talented groups, but the Temprees are the best of this style just in terms of raw vocal performance. The production is not as slick as the Stylistics, but there is so much energy and heartfelt, reaching-down-into-the-soul... if you like great soul music, you owe it to yourself to get this CD. Once you check this out , you will seek out all their other recordings.

On top of the great singing, the backing musicians are fantastic. The playing is very tasteful, tight, and it all sounds like it was done together in one take (and I mean that in the best way possible). This is one of my dessert island CDs. Musicians definitely need this in their collection no matter what style you like.

....in maximum falsettoes and mellow tunes supreme.
Get this for "the 'ah-hah', blue lights in the basement, slow drag on the last record, where were you when you 1st heard this" feel (I've started to sound like a late night informercial). The Temprees biggest hit was a remake of the bobby soxing, soda shop, 60's car radio tune "Dedicated to the One I Love". But there were other tunes like "Love Between and girl And Boy can be So Wonderful", and "Caught Up in Love's Maze" and "I Love.."
Nowadays love tunes with those boy soprano falsettoes are met with disdain. 'What's that noise? Turn that Screeching down!'
and 'God Bless Barry White and Wille Nelson--them's real men'. But certainly, key to enjoyment of this CD of the Temprees is that you had to have been there in a place and time, young--hormonally adult, but not enough years behind ya--on the make or make out with these tunes ringing in your ears. It makes a lotta sense also when you consider that we back then would never consider the blatant in your face stuff seen now. We had to be a little more smooth. The Temprees helped us to be more smooth.

It's just AWESOME! If you like to really hear when singers really sang without all the musical props and computer stuff, this group is one of the best. Truly, "Old School," and about quality of relationships and life.

I tried several music stores, and could not find what I wanted, until I found amazon.com. If you like old school music amazon.com is the site to go to.

The Temprees capture that special part of your relationship when everything is right. If you are in love this album is for you. If you have ever been in love this album will remind you of what it is all about. Dedicated to the one I love, My Baby Love, Love can be so wonderful, I'm for you, you for me are songs that I played over and over on the original album and I find myself all these years later still doing the same thing. I absolutely love the Temprees' music because its music for lovers.

Along with The Mad Lads and The Dramatics, The Temprees recorded some very sweet and soulful romantic ballads for Stax Records. Although their peak was short, classic ballads like "Explain It To Her Mama", "Dedicated To The One I Love" and the immortal "Love Can Be So Wonderful" place The Temprees in the same league as The Stylistics, The Delfonics and The Dells.
