Album Review

Recommended for easily satisfied casual fans only, diehard Eddie Kendricks janissaries won't find much satisfaction with this scanty run-down of Kendricks' solo career, which found the ex-Temptation constantly on the R&B charts and no stranger to pop chart success. Sadly, his two biggest pop darts ("Keep on Truckin'" and "Boogie Down") are not the lengthy album tracks but the short radio edits. Just when "Keep on Truckin'" starts kicking you're rollin' into "Boogie Down," which turns out to be a shortie too. Miraculously, his disco thumper "Girl You Need a Change of Mind" runs its full 7:33. A saving point is the inclusion of both title tracks from his overlooked albums done in Philadelphia under Norman Harris; you usually get "He's a Friend of Mine" in compilations but almost never "Going up in Smoke." The beautiful "Tell Her Love Has Felt the Need" is a majestically executed weeper. "Can I," the ballad most identified with Kendricks (other than "Just My Imagination"), didn't make the cut — another bummer.

Customer Reviews

Poppy jazzzzz has no class

No matter how many times I put on a classic soul tune in my car my daughter complains. Two weeks later some no talent producer has sampled the song and there she sits claiming how great the song is. We live in a generation where no one can play an instrument. And few can sing without a digital auto-correction program for their out of tune voice. I like Fergie. I even buy her records. But you need to get a life if you're going to compare her to Eddie Kendricks. You're wrote a review dissing a soul music legend and you can't compose a coherent thought!! Wow. You must be really special. I'll bet your english teacher couldn't wait for you to show up for class each day.

Eddie takes me back.....

If i close my eyes when listening to Eddie Kendricks it takes me back to the 70's. The music was awesome. It was a musical time that makes you cry for it because you miss it. Eddie Kendricks....The Essence of cool.....I wish more of the tunes had made it on to this album, but i'll take this for now.

Love Eddie

This album is not a full collection of all the songs that really made Eddie popular. There were many songs from "Slick" and "People...hold on!" that could've been added. "Eddie's love" "Baby" "Let me run into your lonely heart" many songs that sum up his career. I have all these songs already. But I'm glad "Intimate friends" was added on. I want to hear the 3minute 45disc version. And also the unedited version of "Girl you need a change of mind" but other than that love Eddie mild collection. Needs more more of his solo work.

Known for both his years with the Temptations and his major solo hits of the 1970s, Eddie Kendricks was among the many soul legends who did his part to put Motown on the map. The expressive vocalist (who often sang in a falsetto), born Edward James Kendrick, grew up in Birmingham, Alabama, but it was Detroit's Motown label that made him a star. Kendricks was still living in Alabama in the late '50s when he formed the Primes with Kell Osborne and Temptation-to-be Paul Williams. After moving from Alabama...
