The Temptations

“Cloud Nine” (Gordy) 1969


In the days before funk became an unstoppable monster, Norman Whitfield commandeered America’s beloved soul crooners, the Temptations, and took an experimental chance on the A-side of their 1969 LP, Cloud Nine. Aided by the record label’s unassuming session guitarist Dennis Coffey on the title cut, “Cloud Nine” blisters gritty and raw energy that is a stark contrast to their previous work.
