"... the singing and playing really do fuse the production styles of Smokey and Sly, a major achievement. B."
- Robert Christgau

"The group’s masterpiece of this era, Psychedelic Shack ... eschewed the hit machine format of their previous albums in favour of a more cohesive statement made up of equal parts Harlem discontent and Haight-Ashbury idealism ... the group’s crowning achievement in terms of full-length albums ..."
- PopMatters.com

Psychedelic Shack marked a musical departure for the Temptations: as the title hints, the material is harder-edged, featuring electric guitars, modern synthesizers and studio wizardry rather than the more traditional Motown sound of the group's previous releases. The top 10 album is notable for the first appearance of the protest song War, which would be re-recorded three months later as a major hit by Edwin Starr and again in the 1980s by Bruce Springsteen.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
