AllMusic Review by

Released through the German wing of Universal, Legenden des Soul is a series of '60s/'70s-oriented anthologies that compile major and minor hits from marquee R&B artists. The volumes consist of original recordings and were made available as compact discs and as digital downloads. The Temptations get an 18-track overview that ranges from 1964's "My Girl" (a number one pop and R&B hit) to 1973's "Law of the Land" (an underground club favorite that otherwise bombed). Among the notable selections are "Ain't Too Proud to Beg," "Get Ready," "Cloud Nine," "Psychedelic Shack," and "Ball of Confusion." Like the other volumes in the series, it provides a decent sampling of its subject.
