Background: Released in 1972, All Directions was the sixteenth album by the Temptations.
The album reached #2 on the U.S. charts, helped by the single “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” The album reached #19 on the UK chart.
A monster album, the one that put them back in the spotlight and signaled that Norman Whitfield had saved the day. Damon Harris had replaced Eddie Kendricks, and there were many doubters convinced the band was finished. Instead, Whitfield revitalized them via the majestic single, “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.” Despite its length, Whitfield’s decision to open with an extensive, multi-layered musical suite and tease listeners was a master stroke.
