The Temptations “Papa Was a Rolling Stone”

Papa Was a Rolling Stone

I had to drive down to the city the other day and this lost classic came on. Not the single version but the 11 minute plus album version that was done by The Temptations in 1972. Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone was a first for Motown records. Never before had they put out a song that wasn’t of the single variety and boy did it pay off. Do I need to say more?
