Full Show Friday: The Temptations Live in 1983

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...The Temptations!
We are getting on with some singers and funky stuff this Friday as we dip into the Temptations from 1983. There is a bit of 70's disco in today's performance, but the cheese doesn't weigh things down, especially when you consider they are playing a Casino in Atlantic City and end the opening "Superstar" with a nod to Jesus Christ Superstar

Pro shot and pro sound throughout. At 17:40 the players break out my favorite Temptation tune, "Cloud Nine" and they do it all sped up, cooking into "Psychedelic Shack". The classics of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone" and "My Girl" still sound great. As do some of the lesser known tunes...and the crazy cover of "Eye of the Tiger". Never thought I would hear the Temp's cover Survivor...ahh the 80's.
