Οι Temptations ως χορωδιακό εξάρτημα της ψυχεδελικής soul μηχανής των Funk Brothers.
Το “Masterpiece” από το ομώνυμο άλμπουμ του 1973 είναι μια από τις μεγάλες στιγμές με τις οποίες σύνδεσε το όνομά του o συνθέτης – παραγωγός – γεννήτορας του ήχου της Motown, Norman Whitefield.
Η single version περιορίσθηκε στα 4 λεπτά.

Temptations as a choral component of Funk Brothers‘ psychedelic soul machine.
Masterpiece”, from the 1973 album of the same name, is one of the great moments with which Norman Whitefield‘s name, composer – producer – generator of the sound of Motown was connected.
The single version was limited to 4 minutes.

❝ Where I was born ev’rything was dull and dingy
I lived in a place they called the inner city
Getting ahead huh was strictly a nono
‘Cause nobody cares what happens to the folks
That live in the ghetto
Thousands of lives wasting away
People living from day to day
It’s a challenge just staying alive
‘Cause in the ghetto only the strong survive
Broken down homes, kids strung out
They don’t even know what life’s all about
Stealin’ cars, robbin’ bars
Mugging drugs, rat infested
And no one’s interested
Kids dodging cars for recreation
Only adds to a mother’s frustration
Breakings, folks comin’ home
And finding all their possessions gone
Oh it’s an ev’ry day thing, well well, in the ghetto
Oh it’s an ev’ry day thing, well in the ghetto ❞
