    Who Are These Temptations?

    I may have heard this song somewhere way back, but I do not remember. Can anyone tell me anything about these "Temptions"?

    These Temptations made it to #29 [[10 weeks) on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1960 with “Barbara."

    I first heard of 'these' Temptations in the early '80s [[from listening to WCBS-FM in NYC). According to the Discogs site, they're from Flushing, NY, managed by Artie Ripp and only released 3 singles from 1960-61 [[including "Barbara").

    Nice pic of Mary. I used to wonder why she always used the Supremes' name in her billing in one form or another. I actually thought that maybe she felt that her name alone did not carry enough weight.

    Eventually I realized that maybe it was to avoid confusion of the other Mary Wilsons out there. [[There is also a Mary Wilson soprono opera singer)

    I wonder if she ever considered just adding a middle intial to her name. Michael Fox had to add a middle initial to his name because Actors Equity alrready had a Michael Fox. He became Michael J Fox. [[the "J" stamds for nothing)

    Mary J Wilson sounds nice. Or Mary K Wilson. Too late now. She is Mary Wilson of the Supremes.

    ...not to be confused with Mary Wilson, the wife of British Prime Minister, Harold Wilson.

    I found it at Discogs. And yes, there were a lot of artists/groups that had the same names as the Motown Artists that we know & love. Here's a link to that page where I found "The Miracles" single.

    Once Motown's Temptations became big, no one else could assume their name. Too much to live up to!

    That's true in more ways than one! Motown Records would register the name "The Temptations" once the group established itself in the mid '60s [[although according to Otis Williams, they did this without the group's consent and it wasn't mentioned in their original contract with the company).

    Thanks Motown Eddie. I guess in those days if a group didn't become instantly famous, they never copyrighted their names and just moved on.
