The Temptations Christmas Songs & Music

Soul music gave a new flavour to Christmas music; providing a new twist to songs the world had heard many times before. Leading the charge in R&B styled holiday tunes were The Temptations. The Motown super-group made such as splash in the world of Christmas music, that even today, Temptations Christmas tracks are appearing in repackaged compilation albums ready to spread the holiday cheer amongst a whole new generation.

The Temptations Christmas Albums

Christmas Card

1970: Christmas Card

From their opening track, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, The Temptations draw their listeners in with their smooth trademark harmonies, great grooves and a healthy dose of sleigh bells. In this, their first Christmas album, the boys offer a mix of traditional carols and pop favourites and manage to give these well-run songs a new lease of life.

Give Love at Christmas

1976: Give Love at Christmas

Widely regarded as one of the best R&B Christmas albums of all time, this album opens with Give Love on Christmas Day; a fabulous showcase for Glenn Carl Leonard’s extraordinary falsetto. The album gives each of the band members a chance to shine with lead vocals, while The Temptations’ rendition of Silent Night is innovative and memorable. With just eight tracks, the only complaint to be had is that there isn’t more of it!
