They gave us the business with the Marvin DVD UK got all kinds of goodies, online we here in the US only 16 videos and I saw it in the store and it had 12 doggone videos. Type of mess is that - Where's the justice!
That's just plain messed up lol, but at least you're getting the concert, it is AWESOME.
And this may sound bad but I was hoping they would give the UK something extra with the Tempts, call me greedy but I want as much C5 as I can get lol
The Temptations- Get Ready Definitive Performances 1965-1972
Features for the first time on DVD, 16 classic full-length performances from the Temptations on American television appearances during Motown’s golden era. This is the first official DVD anthology of classic archival television performances by one of the most successful singing groups of all time. Beginning with a stunning 1965 performance of “The Way You Do The Things You Do” and concluding with the epic “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone,” filmed in concert in September of 1972 (two weeks before it debuted on the charts), this DVD includes a wealth of vintage performances with re-mastered sound and video. Interspersed between the songs, Otis Williams (the only surviving member of the original Temptations) reminisces about the history of the group in an insightful interview filmed exclusively for this DVD.
Got my copy last week and all I gotta say is - you guys HAVE TO buy this!! It's just as excellent as Marvin's one. The only three clips on here that I have seen before are TWYDTTYD, Wish It Would Rain and Ain't Too Proud To Beg, but that aside the clips aren't the common stuff we're used to, Reelin In The Years picked some special footage for this one. The best part is that the bulk of it is the C5 and we get to see Paul, Eddie and David each take the lead. This group was one of the best things that ever happened to music and whatever IT is they owned it.
The clips with Dennis are very good too but I think I was right when I said they should have left Papa off. Hit or not it just doesn't seem to fit and if it were up to me, it would have been left on the editing room floor, they should have replaced it with something else that didn't include Faketations
The A-Capella tracks are great too because we get to hear the guys in raw form, the only thing is that some of the songs end a second or so early whereas on Marvin's one they play right the way through. But it's still a great experience
Lastly the only thing that irks me about this DVD is Otis. I can't believe people actually acknowledeg the garbage he is spews out. He's on there saying 'oh I knew My Girl was gonna be a hit, I could feel it', - 'oh I knew JMI was gonna be a hit, I could feel it, especially when they added the strings', - but the killer was when he said he was the one who introduced Norman to Sly Stone and hinted the Tempts should go in that direction. He says that's how Norman came up with Cloud 9. I'm telling ya Chapelle and Flip ain't got nothing on Otis Williams!!
