IN JANUARY 1964, MOTOWN RECORDS released The Temptations first album, aptly titled, ‘Meet The Temptations.’ This album would also be a first for a new entry member of the group, David Ruffin. Ruffin had replaced member Al Bryant, who was released by Berry Gordy in December 1963. This album features, as main lead, Paul Williams and Eddie Kendricks, who divided the twelve songs listed on the album. A track off the album, “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” written bySmokey Robinson and Bobby Rogers, became a Top 20 chart-topper (lead singer: Eddie Kendricks) as it was their first single. It would reach #11 on the Billboard pop chart on April 11, 1964. The album would be released by the Gordy label in monaural sound only.

ABOUT THOSE ‘GENE MEROLLIS CHEVROLET’ RADIO ADS
Gene Merollis Chevrolet, once located in Garden City, created in the 1960s what would become THE MOST recognized 30-second radio ads ever produced for any car dealership in the entire Detroit metropolitan area. Gene Merollis Chevrolet, every spot ever so humorous along with their catchy phrases, “where you save a week’s pay,” and “that’s where money-saving deals begin,” those same radio advertisements played daily on Detroit radio would catapult the Garden City dealership to #1 status for 15 years. Gene Merollis sold the most GM Chevy cars anywhere on the Detroit map from 1963 through 1978.
“Gene Merollis what a great, great, guy!”
