The Temptations - The Original Mini-Series Soundtrack (1998)

The Romeo + Juliet soundtrack is kind of like a time capsule of 1990's Alternative Rock and Post-Grunge, featuring artists like Garbage, Everclear, Gavin Friday, and Radiohead. Volume 1 was the true soundtrack, released on October 29, 1996, and later on Volume 2 was released which was the original score.

The Temptations - The Original Mini-Series Soundtrack (1998)

Some of the songs are original exclusives, like "Vanilla Sky" by Paul McCartney. Others are simply great, atmospheric songs from the likes of R.E.M., Radiohead, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, The Chemical Brothers, and more. It's hard to emphasize how much the movie makes the soundtrack, and not the other way around.

The Temptations were among the first African American musical artists to crossover into mainstream America and appear on popular, national mainstream television programs. In 1968, and 1969, respectively, Diana Ross and the Supremes and The Temptations starred in primetime network television specials "TCB (Taking Care of Business)" and "G.I.T. (Getting It Together) on Broadway." Never before had two contemporary African American groups headlined their own #1 nationally rated television specials, all produced by Motown, an African American owned company. The "TCB" special was named the #1 rated variety show in 1968 and received an Emmy nomination. The original cast soundtrack album, TCB, reached #1 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart. At the time, this was an unparalleled accomplishment for African American entertainers. The Temptations helped change the face of primetime television and fueled the growth in the performing arts and entertainment world for African Americans artists forever.
