Background: Released in 1968, Diana Ross & the Supremes Join the Temptations was the first of two collaborations between the Supremes and the Temptations.
The album reached #2 on the U.S. charts and #1 in the UK, helped by the single, “I’m Going to Make You Love Me”, which reached #2 on the U.S. charts.
What more could you want, two great groups, 11 great songs, and classic Motown productions. Contains the super groups’ big hit “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” and the equally effervescent “I’ll Try Something New.” But the goodies don’t stop there: Check “Try It Baby,” a remake of Marvin Gaye’s hit, done this time with bass Melvin Franklin groaning lead lines to Diana Ross’ soprano; Diana and Dennis Edwards recreate Marvin and Tammi on a rousing version of “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”; smooth tenor-singing Otis Williams does a silky rendition of “This Guy’s in Love With You”; and Paul Williams is forever Paul as the prominent voice on “Then,” an old Four Tops album cut.
