    When I was in school - Hattie Littles

    This track is my favorite from the new More Motown Girls. A queston for the experts. I would like to know who sing the backround vocals on the track, Im not sure if I hear The Temptations or The Love-Tones. Thanks for al answers

    I should be able to tell The Love-Tones from The Temptations, because I know Carl J
    ones' voice. and the group's overall sound. But, when I looked for advertising for the CD, I couldn't find any snippets of the songs, and I didn't find the song on You-Tube. Can someone upload a recording of that song to this thread so we can hear it?

    It sounds like the Temptations to me. But I`m often wrong.

    Both groups sang backgrounds for Hattie around the time of "When I Was In School". So it is possible that it is either group. So, I wish I could hear the cut. Surely there is a sales website that has snippets of the songs available for listening. But, I haven't been able to find one. Can't someone direct me to where I can hear it? I know the sound of both groups from 1962-64, and a listen should make it obvious. The Temptations' voices are very distinct, as are 2 of The Love-Tones.

    Thanks, Paul. That's DEFINITELY The Temptations. The blending of their voices is unmistakable. I see that Don't Forget The Motor City has some basic information on "When I Was In School", but no listing of the background singers.

    Yes, Larry, I do too, as well as all four of the others. It was recorded before David joined the group, which is why we don't also hear HIS usually prominent voice.
