You may find it difficult to stay in your seat or to keep your toes from tapping as you experience Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations

The Story

Before they were one of the most recognized groups to ever enter the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, The Temptations were a group of young men finding their footing on the streets of Detroit. Ain't Too Proud chronicles their rise to fame, narrated by the character of founding member Otis Williams and underscored by the music that has led generations to dance and sing along.
