The Temptations with a Lot o' Soul is the fifth studio album by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label released in 1967. Featuring four hit singles, With a Lot o' Soul is the most successful Temptations album from their "classic 5" era, during which David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, and Otis Williams constituted the Temptations' lineup. The four singles from the album, all Top 20 Pop / Top 10 R&B hits, were "(I Know) I'm Losing You", "All I Need", "You're My Everything", and "(Loneliness Made Me Realize) It's You That I Need". three of these four songs also reached the Billboard Pop Top 10 as well. Norman Whitfield produced most of the tracks here, supporting the Temptations' vocals with a hard-edged soul sound with elements of the music of James Brown.
|“||Features the latest remastering. Includes a Japanese description, lyrics, and bonus tracks. Features original cover artwork. The complete recordings done by John Coltrane for Bethlehem Records – mostly cut during December of 1957, and issued on the albums The Winner's Circle and Art Blakey Big Band! Both albums were a bit unusual for the label – in that The Winner's Circle was sort of a blowing/jam session type record, cut with some of the big poll winners of the year, but with shorter tracks than the usual Prestige-styled set of that nature. The lineup includes Donald Byrd, Al Cohn, Eddie Costa, Oscar Pettiford, and Philly Joe Jones – and Coltrane's a bit buried in the group, but gets out some nice licks from time to time.||”|

|“||Quite an unusual album for trumpeter Howard McGhee – one that has the famous bop trumpeter working in a sweet "with strings" format – ala similar 50s sessions on Verve! Frank Hunter handles the larger group here – working the strings with some nice touches that go way past just sleepy orchestrations – into a realm of playful passages that help coax some quite unfamiliar sounds from Howard's horn! The approach is quite different than some of McGhee's more seminal sides, but is also a great illustration of this under-acknowledge side of his talents – and a voice that definitely seems to echo some of his personal struggles at the time. Titles include "Sonny Boy", "The Thrill Is Gone", "The Best Things In Life Are Free", "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries", and "My Sin".||”|
|“||Reissue. Features the latest remastering. Includes a Japanese description, lyrics. Features original cover artwork. A tightly swinging set of tracks dedicated to Al Jazzbo Collins – the famous jazz DJ of the 50s! Collins has little to do with the set – save for his image on the front cover – and the group's mostly a swing-based ensemble, grooving in a style that's similar to other mid 50s albums on Bethlehem, but a bit rougher and more open-ended. The ensemble seems to be led by tenor player Bob Wilber – and features Sonny Truitt on trombone, John Glasel on trumpet, Bob Hammer on piano, Bill Britto on bass, and Jackie Moffitt on drums. Titles include a number of originals – including "Giggles", "Phweedah", "View From Jazzbo's Head", and "The Troglodyte".||”|
|“||Reissue. Features the latest remastering. Includes a Japanese description, lyrics. Features original cover artwork. The album definitely lives up to the title, and features the mighty Jack Teagarden in a number of small group settings – all with a straight ahead punch that gets away from some of the gimmicks of his other 50s sessions! Teagarden's trombone is still one of the sharpest instruments of his generation of jazz – and Jack works here with a mix of players that includes Jimmy McPartland on trumpet, Edmond Hall on clarinet, Dick Cary on piano, Walter Page on bass, and Jo Jones on drums. Most arrangements are by Cary – and Jack sings just a bit, in that wonderfully raspy style of his. Titles include "Misery & The Blues", "Bad Acting Woman", "Meet Me Where They Play The Blues", "Music To Love By", and "High Society".||”|
