Présentation

Certains titres plus connus via le groupe phare de la Motown, les Temptations. Et c'est intéressant de savourer les variantes créées par Norman Whitfield avec cette sensation musicale de tournoiement effréné comme sur "Law Of The Land" (A1).
L'interprétation de "Papa Was A Rollin' Stone" (A2) est beaucoup plus sobre, moins emphatique et le plaisir auditif est conservé, certes moins dansant, moins 'pimenté' mais quel talent du côté des interprètes, vocalement c'est tout simplement parfait. Et "This Child Needs Its Father" (A5) démarre sur une ambiance quasi funèbre, c'est sombre, et fragile à la fois, superbe orchestration.
De la face B, je retiens "If I Die" (B5) qui possède cette forme musicale avec cet univers 'tragique', triste.
