(GIRL) WHY YOU WANNA MAKE ME BLUE * THE TEMPTATIONS * STATESIDE 348 * UK
Released in August 1964 in the US and two months latter in the UK, this was only the third Temptations record to go on sale in British shops; their first album Meet The Temptations was still six months away, although it had been issued in the States as early as March 1964. Their next single My Girl was to give them their first of many gold discs, and was the first to chart in Britain; but it is the above ballad, possibly because it is not heard so frequently or its being slightly less saccharine, that gets more plays on my Hi-Fi.
N.B. There is a slight difference in the titles on the two different issues, see the correct title on the American issue below.
