In A Mellow Mood by The Temptations

The Temptations in a Mellow Mood is the sixth studio album by The Temptations for the Motown Records label released November 27, 1967.  This album was released at a time that Barry Gordy wanted The Temptations to cross over to white audiences and would be able to secure play dates at supper clubs like the Copacabana. Paul Williams was worried about being a sellout to black audiences, but the experiment worked.  This album consisted of crossover classics such as The Impossible Dream, A Taste Of Honey, That’s Life, and my favorite song on the album For Once In My Life (a slower version of the song originally recorded by Stevie Wonder) and much more.  This album was well performed, recorded and produced.  I highly recommend this album to anyone’s record library.
