    The Temptations are my favorite Motown group.

    Too much talent for one group to contain!

    I concur, but I gotta send some love to Smokey Robinson & The Miracles.

    Love Smokey, plus he was a great songwriter. I put Smokey behind the Temptations and in front of the Four Tops for certain (for the male groups).

    The Temptations were pure class, along with Smokey and the Miracles and Marvin Gaye. For me they were the top 3 Motown acts by a long way.

    David Ruffin was as good as anybody.

    Yup Ruffin was really good but his drug habit and attitude got him killed.

    I recently saw Ain't Too Proud - the musical about the Temps at the Berkeley Rep Theatre in Berkeley CA. Folks will really like it who love that music. It's probably headed to Broadway.

    My absolute favorite song of theirs, but there were so many good ones.

    The recordings and mixing from this era of music is so sparse it is perfection for the vocal groups of the time
    if i was a music engineer /producer today i would take so much inspiration from these recordings

    The Temptations were just awesome, and they're the only Motown group I actually saw live. I think my top 3 Motown groups would be:
    Supremes
    Temptations
    Four Tops
    Marvin Gaye might be better than all of them, but he's a solo act, so....
