Vinyl? Check! 12: Needs Not Wants
Norman Whitfield was eventually replaced as The Temptation's producer and subsequently left Motown with Rose Royce (who backed The Temptations on this album) in tow, but not before creating an album filled with gems, I Need You being one of which contains that classic Temptaions' sound. I Need You benefits from the Temps golden voices, primarily Damon Harris' tenor/falsetto (Damon grew up admiring Eddie Hendricks, who he replaced in the Temptations), Henry Garner Jr's (of Rose Royce) drum breaks and Norman Whitfield's stellar production which sounds like Superfly era Curtis Mayfield.
