While Eddie Kendrick
(or Kendricks) never made as much impact on his own as he did with The Temptations
, he still made some fine singles as a solo artist on Motown. These are included on this anthology, and while three or four great tunes usually aren't enough to merit an anthology, Motown has issued them by artists who had even fewer. "Keep on Truckin'" was a disco/soul classic, and "Boogie Down" and "He's a Friend" are also outstanding. Kendricks
is sorely missed by R&B and soul fans.
