Time To Get Manly 21: Temptations - Gettin' Ready

I randomly ran across a list of what Esquire magazine claims are "The 75 Albums Every Man Should Own." In this series of posts, I'll explore these manly, manly sounds.

Temptations - Gettin' Ready

Whew. What a nice break after having to listen to Kiss and Radiohead right in a row. Any self-respecting man should have a healthy dose of Motown in their record collection, and Gettin' Ready is a great place to start. It's one of many slices of musical magic to come out of Detroit in the mid-60's, and even the songs you don't immediately recognize sound like classic hits. Additionally, if you have a deep enough voice that you can sing Melvin Franklin's bass parts, you should totally capitalize on that. Girls love a good bass singer.
