    Motown Film - Mickey's Monkey Which Temptations?

    Hello,

    Rachel here from the Motown documentary being made. Can anyone help me find out which of the Temptations recorded on Mickey's Monkey? Otis Williams and...?

    Thanks everyone in advance!

    I believe Otis speaks briefly about MICKEY'S MONKEY during his profile in the book "WHERE ARE YOU NOW, BO DIDDLEY?" I haven't read the book in years, so I don't remember if he listed any other Tempts members besides himself taking part. I vaguely recall him saying that Smokey was the only Miracle on it.

    The song was recorded in 1963 and the personnel noted included the entire group...The Temptations. The Temptations at that time consisted of: Otis Williams, Paul Williams, Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, and Elbridge "Al" Bryant.

    Hey if you play the DVD commentary on smokey Robinson and the miracles he basically says who's on it. All of the miracles are on it along with Martha and the vandellas, 3 of the marvelettes, a couple of the temptations, jay Gibson and of course Mary Wilson.
