Diana Ross & The Supremes/The Temptations - Diana Ross & The Supremes Join The Temptations

Successful TV spin-off

This album sprouted from a TV collaboration between the two titans of soul, on the show TCB (Taking Care of Business), which aired in 1968 and featured a mixture of popular songs and Motown hits. This exploitative LP hit the mark in terms of quality, featuring a successful remake of Marvin Gaye’s Try It Baby and Otis Williams’ smooth rendition of This Guy’s In Love With You. It also saw the introduction of The Temptations’ new lead singer, Dennis Edwards, who replaced David Ruffin in 1968.
