    After years of feeling Eddie Kendricks deprived with half hearted collections and best of's, comes this great collection. This covers Eddie's first 3 solo Lp's without being that perfect instrument for the Temptations. I say that, beacause Eddie's voice was a complete instrument in itself. What impressed me was that, yes he could sing in his famous falletto, but some of these songs showed how versitile his voice really was(If You Let Me,This Used To Be The Home Of Johnnie Mae). Of course it has "Keep On Truckin'", but I'm glad the the "People ... Hold On" album is on here. That's the best album he released, and finally it is available.
