Tensions developed between Whitfield and the group, who found Whitfield arrogant and difficult to work with. Citing his habitual tardiness, his emphasis of the instrumental tracks at the expense of their vocals on many of his productions, and the declining singles and albums sales as other sources of conflict, the group sought to change producers. Damon Harris was fired from the group during the recording of A Song for Youas his behavior and work ethic were deemed unprofessional,  and his replacement was Washington, D.
None of these recordings were as commercially successful as A Song for You however, and none of their associated singles entered the Billboard charts. As time progressed, Bowen pushed Dennis Edwards further to the front of the group. This was evident on Wings of Lovewhere several tracks featured Edwards' vocal more prominently than the other Temptations' backing vocals. Success continued to elude the group at Atlantic, however. Their two releases on Atlantic — Hear to Tempt Youand Bare Backalong with their associated singles, had failed to perform any better at Atlantic than their last handful of singles had at Motown.
As a result, inAtlantic released the group from its contract,  and shortly afterwards, the Temptations met once again with Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, who re-signed the group to Motown in Upon the return to Motown several lineup changes occurred.
Louis Price departed from the group and joined the Drifters. Dennis Edwards—who had made an unsuccessful attempt at developing a solo career during his three-year exit from the group—returned to the lineup. Berry Gordy co-wrote and produced "Power", the Temptations' first single under the new contract. Two years of under-performing singles and albums followed, including an eponymous album with Philadelphia -based producer Thom Belluntil Motown began planning a Temptations reunion tour in Eddie Kendricks and David Ruffin agreed to rejoin the group for the new album, aptly titled Reunionand its subsequent promotional tour.
Rick Jamesthe Motown funk star who had previously used the Temptations as backup vocalists on his hit " Super Freak " and whom Franklin claimed as his nephew,  wrote, produced, and guested on the Reunion album's lead single, " Standing on the Top ".
While the ensuing Reunion tour with all seven Temptations Ruffin, Kendricks, Otis Williams, Franklin, Edwards, Richard Street, and Glenn Leonard was financially successful, it ended up being a stressful venture: Kendricks' voice had weakened after decades of chain smokingRuffin still addicted to drugs missed a number of the performances due to being incapacitated, and current group members Dennis Edwards and Glenn Leonard were causing problems.
At the conclusion of the Reunion tour, Ruffin and Kendricks were dismissed, and they began touring and performing together as a duo. One more album, Surface Thrillsreleased infeatured a sharp departure in the group's sound by incorporating elements of then-current rock. Tyson had been a staff songwriter at Atlantic during the Temptations' tenure at that label, and co-wrote several songs on Album) album Hear to Tempt You.
The album Back to Basicsreleased later inwas the first album featuring Ron Tyson on lead. Woodson was a Detroit native who had been a potential candidate to replace Dennis Edwards back in Meanwhile, Edwards who also had his share of lead vocals on the Back to Basics album was again fired infor missing rehearsals or showing up hungover. He then attempted a second solo career, scoring a hit with the single " Don't Look Any Tripod (2) - Data Error (CD ", a duet with Siedah Garrett.
At this point, Woodson officially joined the group, taking Edwards' place. Ali Woodson remained with the Temptations untilwhen he was fired for consistent lateness. He was replaced by the again-returning Dennis Edwards. The group recorded one album during Edwards's third tenure, Together Againreleased in late An updated version of the book was published in Edwards was fired from the group for the third and final time in latewith Woodson re-joining the lineup.
InThe Temptations released the album Specialwhich included the soulful singles "Special" and "Soul to Soul". Most of the Temptations, present and former, showed no ill feelings towards one another, although Otis Williams reported that Kendricks refused speak to him during the ceremony.
The tour was in fact carried out, but production on the album was canceled when year-old David Ruffin died in Philadelphia after a cocaine overdose on June 1, Kendricks was diagnosed with lung cancer soon after; he continued to perform until his death on October 5,in his native Birmingham. Richard Street missed a performance in after undergoing emergency surgery to remove kidneystones. Otis Williams, completely unaware of Street's surgery, called him angrily about his absence.
Street felt Williams was unsympathetic, and as a result, he left the group in after twenty-two years. His replacement was St. Louis native Theo Peoples. By the early s, bass Melvin Franklin began missing performances due to failing health and Ray Davisformer bass man of Parliament-Funkadelicbegan touring as a fill-in during The group subsequently finished production on For Lovers Onlyan album of pop standards featuring two tracks recorded with Melvin Franklin prior to his death.
However, this lineup did not last, as Davis was diagnosed with lung cancer  and left shortly after completing the album. Davis died in New Brunswick, New Jersey of respiratory problems and complications of lung cancer on the evening of Tuesday July 5, The group continued as a quartet for a short time before recruiting bass Harry McGilberrya former member of the Futures.
For Lovers Only was also the last contribution for lead Ali-Ollie Woodson; he was released from the group shortly after McGilberry's hiring  due to health problems:  he suffered two bouts of throat cancer in a short time.
He was replaced by new member Terry Weekswho had served as his sub. The album was anchored by "Stay," a single featuring Theo Peoples on lead and including a sample from "My Girl," which became a number-one hit on the urban adult contemporary charts.
It was released to extremely positive reviews. Peoples was fired from the group before the release of Phoenix Rising because of issues with drug addiction,  and was replaced by Barrington "Bo" Henderson. Henderson lip-synched to Peoples's vocals in the "Stay" music video, and the completed album features lead vocals on different tracks by both Henderson and Peoples. Also inthree months after the release of Phoenix Rising earlier in the year, de Passe Entertainment run by former Motown vice-president Suzanne de Passe and Hallmark Entertainment produced The Temptationsa four-hour television miniseries based on Otis Williams' Temptations autobiography.
The miniseries was broadcast in two parts on NBC on November 1 and November 2,with the first part covering the group's history from toand the second part the years from to The lawsuits were consolidated, and the judges ruled in favor of the defendants, and the ruling was upheld when the plaintiffs appealed in Bo Henderson was fired from the group inprompting a wrongful termination lawsuit.
