JDIZZY's 365 # 285: Temptation Eyes

Temptation Eyes - The Grass Roots (1970)

The Grass Roots were not really a band (but neither were The Crystals, Hedgehoppers Anonymous or The Sex Pistols!). They were a studio creation by the guys who wrote "Eve Of Destruction" . Still, their singles are some of the best of the era in terms of production, musicality and vocals, with "Temptation Eyes" being the crowning achievement. It's so good you don't even worry about the constant personnel changes that no one even knew about it. This is bubblegum corporate rock at its finest!
