Eddie Kendricks - Eddie Kendricks (1973)

From The Lost Record Covers Club

Another early 70's Motown classic.  Kendricks made albums as a solo artist following his departure from the Temptations under the supervision of Frank Wilson (who was also looking after the Four Tops at this point).  "Keep On Truckin'" would establish Eddie in the UK and still is his signature track pop-wise here although later tracks captured the dance crowd..  This set also features "Each Day I Cry A Little" a song that builds in to a real soul classic (One of my favourite vocal performances by this ex-temp). "If You Let Me" was the lead single. Motown tried to cash in on the success of "Truckin'" by commissioning the very similar "Boogie Down" for the next single and building an album around it.
