We certainly today mourn the loss of this understated musical giant, but we also celebrate the incredible legacy of music he leaves to us; songs we will be listening to and singing for decades to come.
Not included are two singles which predate these two singles, " I'll Be in Trouble " and " Girl (Why You Wanna Make Me Blue) " (whose b-side , " Baby, Baby I Need You ", is here). These songs would be included on the next Temptations album, The Temptin' Temptations . A third hit single, " The Way You Do the Things You Do ", is present here, although it was also issued on the previous Temptations album, Meet the Temptations .
Smokey was also known as the nicest guy at Motown, which you hear in his voice. I used to do a Canadian television show called Swingin' Time , and everyone from Detroit would show up: the Supremes, Stevie Wonder, the Temptations. All of them nice people, but Smokey was particularly a gentleman. I saw him again around '87 at an awards show. I was able to tell him how much I appreciated his writing, and all the money I made playing his songs in bars. I have great memories. Thank you, Smokey.
