A superb album produced by Motown’s psychedelic mastermind Norman Whitfield. It reached #2 on the Billboard 200 in 1972, making it the band’s most successful non-collaborative album on the chart. It also became their twelfth album to reach #1 on the Top R&B Albums chart. All Directions features the #1 hit “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”, which was a twelve-minute cover of a Whitfield-produced Undisputed Truth single. “Papa” won three Grammy Awards in 1973: Best R&B Performance by a Group for The Temptations, Best R&B Instrumental Performance for Whitfield and arranger/conductor Paul Riser, and Best R&B Song for Whitfield and lyricist Barrett Strong. It is widely regarded as one of The Temptations’ signature numbers.
