Eddie Kendricks is the third album by former Temptations vocalist Eddie Kendricks. Released in the Spring of 1973 on the Tamla imprint of Motown Records. This was the breakthrough solo album Eddie Kendricks was looking for. Charting on the pop chart at number eighteen and number five on the R&B chart. This was his only solo album that would land on the pop chart.
Kendricks doesn't have the depth of a natural solo performer-the sweet clarity of his falsetto rang nice spiritual overtones against his more earthbound fellow Temptations, but it gets thin all by itself-and he needs good material to compensate.
This was the breakthrough solo album Eddie Kendricks was looking for. Includes the number-one pop and R&B single "Keep On Truckin'", which is one of the precursor to disco songs to come out before the explosion of the genre. This album established Kendricks as the most successful member of The Temptations to go solo. He was the only former member of the group to have a number-one Hot 100 single. At His Best released: 1978. Goin' Up in Smoke released: 1976. The Hit Man released: 1975.
Hold On (1972), there is an overall trend away from his earlier songs that had been steeped in socially conscious soul music. Immediately, the influence of Philly soul leaps out of "Only Room for Two" sporting judiciously appointed orchestration accenting Kendricks' malleable falsetto as it drifts above the evenly churning.
