Before Keep On Truckin’, things weren’t going too well for Eddie Kendricks. Kendricks had been a Temptation for most of his adult life. He’d been a Temptation since before the Temptations existed. A few years after that, Kendricks and Ruffin recorded an album together, and they also appeared together on a Hall & Oates live album. Hall & Oates will, of course, eventually appear in this column. But Kendricks and Ruffin never really managed a comeback.

Keep On Truckin' was featured on Eddie’s self-titled third album. 1. Keep on Truckin’ Lyrics Oo. .Keep on truckin', baby I got to keep on truckin' Got to get to your good lovin' Hu.Shame A double shame on me, yeah Love Love, I let it control me, yeah. From just one kiss I am inspired To lovers in time There's a fire huh.

David Ruffin's departure was followed by Kendricks - who had actually already begun to record All by Myself prior to officially leaving the Temps. All that changed, however, with Eddie Kendricks - which entered the Top 20 R&B and pop LP countdowns. On the other side of the stylistic spectrum are "Each Day I Cry a Little," replete with spoken intro, and the not-to-be-missed remake of "Any Day Now" - the Burt Bacharach-penned song that Chuck Jackson spun into gold some years earlier.

On Mr. Kendricks' third album "Eddie Kendricks", "Keep on Truckin'" was the big hit, but it wasn't until I was stationed in Germany did I get a chance to hear the whole album and "Each Day I cry A Little" was a serious torch song if not the best of the decade! On the collection like a previous writer indicated this song is over produced! But Hearing this CD on my Bose 901 speakers I can hear when the horn player breathe (LOL). For You" came out in 1975 and had the big hit "Shoeshine Boy"
