The Temptations - Bare Back (1978) [2013, Japan]

Produced by Brian Holland, and he's imitating the Ohio Players blatantly, from the album cover on down. But the funk's not nearly as fiery as the Players' (title track), and it comes off as a failed attempt to keep up with trends - ditto for the overproduced disco numbers ("Mystic Woman"). The Tempts are at their best here when they stick with their earlier smooth balladeering (the lovely "Ever Ready Love"); the uptempo "I Just Don't Know How To Let You Go" is also enjoyable but slight. Not surprisingly, this was a commercial catastrophe, failing to even chart as a pop record and falling short of the Top 40 on the R&B chart.

The Temptations - Bare Back (1978) [2013, Japan]

Radio gave some notice to Bare Back's first single, "Ever Ready Love," a melodic ballad that sparkled with the sweet lead vocal of Leonard, who was increasingly proving to be a great asset to the group. The Hollands also leaned heavily on the always-brilliant Richard Street, and his empassioned vocals on cuts like "Touch Me Again" and the title track brought the maximum life to fairly mediocre underlying material. Conversely, Louis Price was largely placed in the background for Bare Back, getting the full lead only on "That's When You Need Love" - a really fine vocal performance that showed much better chemistry with the group than his work on Hear.... One hidden gem late on the album was "I See My Child," a string-filled ballad that is at times a bit saccharine, but which includes simply beautiful group harmonies that make it the mostly likely "keeper" on the album. The failure of Bare Back to win - or even keep - the longtime fans of The Temptations, led the group to return, successfully, to Motown in 1980 for Power, a fine album to which Berry Gordy personally attached his name as producer and which thrust The Tempts back into the Top 10.
~Review by Chris Rizik
Other than Richard Streets' energetic lead on the risqué "Bare Back" and Glenn Leonard's glowing falsetto on "Ever Ready Love," there's not much to recommend on the Temptations' second Atlantic record release. Producers Brian and Eddie Holland didn't give Louis Price, who took Dennis Edwards' place, much to show his skills on. Overall, the songs are arguably the weakest ever recorded by the Tempts. After this, the Tempts returned to Motown, their mouths filled with humble pie.
