Masterpiece is an appropriate title for this album as it is precisely that. The penultimate album that Norman Whitfield produced for the Temps illustrates Norman’s writing, producing and Paul Riser’s arrangements skills perfectly. The 14 minute funky title cut epitomizes the 70′s Whitfield sound (quasi Blaxploitation soundtrack theme) and is almost classical in its construction of the horns and strings. ‘Hey Girl’ is a delicate semi Doo Wop ballad that shows the vocal skills of possibly the finest Soul vocal group of all-time. ‘Law Of the Land’, ‘Ma’ and ‘Plastic Man’ are archetypal strong Whitfield cuts. In my opinion, the best collaboration that Whitfield and the Temptations made. The CD is paired with their ’75 album ‘Song For You’ produced by Jeffrey Bowden which features their great cover of Leon Russell’s title track, the slow ‘Memories’, ‘Firefly’ and ‘I’m A Batchelor’ along with the funkier ‘Happy People’ and ‘Shakey Ground’.
