Jimmy Ruffin

The older brother of the Temptations' lead singer David Ruffin, Jimmy enjoyed several huge hits himself in the mid-'60s for Berry Gordy's Soul label. Ruffin first signed with another Motown subsidiary, the short-lived Miracle, in 1961, but it was his convincing vocal on "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" that made him a star in 1966. He encored with "I've Passed This Way Before" and "Gonna Give Her All the Love I've Got." In 1970 he briefly teamed with David (by then a solo artist) as the Ruffin Brothers and cut a duet remake of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me." He staged an impressive comeback in 1980 on RSO Records with a major pop hit, "Hold on to My Love," produced by Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees. A stint living in England during the 1980s resulted in collaborations with Heaven 17 and Paul Weller, the latter for a benefit cover single of "Soul Deep." ~ Bill Dahl

The Temptations were great as individuals, a n d miracleous as group,world class. I pray their music will encourage only LOVE and a love of Great music for many decades to come. Not hate,envy or anything that inspires anything other than great and sincere love for all people of the world.
I believe the Temptations were BLESSED OF GOD as a gift to the world.

Was this one of the best songs of 1966, if not the best? What a year!
Report as inappropriate
All the comments here are perfectly expressed: Real music, real meaning, real singers, real people - likes of which we will never see again. So glad there's a place where we can play their music, close our eyes and take a moment from our busy stressful lives and remember what it was like back in the day when we first heard these beautiful voices. We were so blessed to grow up in that time/place.

This is what you call real music with meaning.
