The Temptations: “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg"

ON THIS DATE (46 YEARS AGO)

May 3, 1966 – The Temptations: “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” b/w “You’ll Lose A Precious Love” (Gordy G-7054) 45 single is released in the US.
“Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” is a 1966 song and hit single by The Temptations for Motown Records’ Gordy label, produced by Norman Whitfield and written by Whitfield and Edward Holland, Jr. The song peaked at number 13 on the Billboard Pop Chart, and was a number-one hit on the Billboard R&B charts for eight non-consecutive weeks. The song’s success, in the wake of the relative underperformance of the previous Temptations single, “Get Ready”, resulted in Norman Whitfield replacing Smokey Robinson, producer of “Get Ready”, as The Temptations’ main producer.
The Rolling Stones made the Billboard Pop Chart Top 20 with a 1974 single release, from their album It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll.
