AllMusic Review by

Arguably the most consistent of Motown's impressive list of vocal groups, the Temptations rode through the cultural shifts of the 1960s and early '70s with apparent ease, turning out quality hit after quality hit. This set focuses on the group's middle period, and includes gems like "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "(I Know) I'm Losing You," "Cloud Nine," "Psychedelic Shack," and their dramatic masterpiece, "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone." A solid set, with no obvious filler.
