Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

The Temptations - The Millennium Collection: The Best of the Temptations, Vol. 1 - The '60s (1999)

Budget priced hits compilation from the Motown vocal quintet, members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame since 1989. Love the music, but this disc's mastering is horrible and distorted, unfortunately.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart

Tracks:  11 tracks, 31 minutes

Song Year  Pop  R&B 
My Girl196511
The Way You Do The Things You Do1964111
Beauty Is Only Skin Deep196631
Get Ready1966291
Ain't Too Proud To Beg1966131
You're My Everything196763
I'm Gonna Make You Love Me196822
Cloud Nine196862
(I Know) I'm Losing You196681
I Wish It Would Rain196841
I Can't Get Next to You196911

While my favorite track here is I Can't Get Next To You, there's no beating the first 15 seconds of Ain't Too Proud To Beg.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Since I was born in '66, it seems like these tunes have always been around.

  1. Love "I Can't Get Next To You" to no end.

    Bummer about the poorly mastered disc, though.
