Led by the late Jasper "Jabbo" Philips' sweet falsetto, the Temprees excelled at singing heart touching sweet southern jerkers. Representative of that infectious sound are "Dedicated to the One I Love," "If I Could Say What's on My Mind," and "I Love You, You Love Me." Jabbo forsakes the falsetto for a natural tenor similar to the Newcomers' Bertram Brown on "Your Love Is All I Need," the mid-tempo "I Love, I Love," "You Make Me Feel So Good Baby," and James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight/A Love Song." Mid and ups flow with their sugary ballads to provide a more even and enjoyable set than their The Best of the Temprees' compilation.
