Soul Men!

I was thinking today about all the great Soul male vocalists from the 50s- 80s I grew up listening to. Here are a few of my favorites I want to remember here. In no special order:

Why So Many Temptations???

I was thinking today ( I know, scary huh? LOL!) why were there so many Temptations, replacement members or what have you? I think there were something like 300 Temptations and counting. Well, maybe not quite that many, but there were a lot of them.

Why do think there were so many individual Temptation members?

Studio LP: Fastest Turn Around from Conception to Release

I was thinking about music releases today; how it's not uncommon for an artist to go years, or sometimes decades, between albums.

Motown on the other hand was a music machine, pumping out 2 or 3 or 5 albums on one artist in a year, sometimes releasing multiple albums on the same day.

Was wondering, sans live albums, from start to finish, what Motown LP was recorded in the shortest amount of time? While a majority of the LPs have songs that span over a few years, there must be examples of albums not including anything vaulted.

The only one that comes to mind might be "Sam Cooke" by the Supremes. Sam passed on December 11, 1964; their tribute was recorded, mixed, packaged and released 4 months later on April 12, 1965. Any other artists or examples of something faster?
