Centering on David Ruffin’s post-Temptations Motown output (1969 to 1977), this wonderfully considered collection would be all the solo Ruffin you’d need if the soul shouter himself didn’t convey such yearning, joy, and sadness. But it’s an excellent starting point. One need only listen to the pleader “Common Man” or the inescapably melancholic “(My Whole World Ended) The Moment You Left Me” to understand Ruffin’s gifts, which also include the ability to lift even pedestrian dancefloor soul to something magical (“Who Am I”) and singing a simple R&B-pop tune like it was the last song ever written (“On and On”).
The Ultimate Collection
But, where is the best song he ever made? You Got To Break My Heart And Set Me Free. Then you can rate it five stars.
How can you go wrong with David Ruffin? Every song on hear is great and you can listen to them all the way through.. i wish i was alive to see him actually perform when he wasnt on drugs.. he had some of the best talent any singer has had and this is what makes him a legend...
The Ultimate David Ruffin
This album is for David Ruffin fans. David Ruffin had such a refined voice, a flair for the dramatics, and a romantic side to his tunes and this album reflects all those factors. He had the "voice". These songs go from the very romantic to his own "World of Darkness". David you are missed by your fans. The Common Man is timeless and hundreds of men could and should sing that song to their wives and some wives to their husands. Artists, like David Ruffin, are truly a gift to the world. I am glad that I had opportunity to see and hear his music. Great Album -- Greater Singer!
