Uninvited Guests: Group Albums Missing Original Members
The Temptations, Cloud Nine
It was regular practice to change the line-up of The Temptations. The group was more about the dynamic than the individual. So, when David Ruffin famously tried to make himself, alone, the star, the group fired him and the next day hired Dennis Edwards as a replacement. Their first album with Edwards, Cloud Nine, was also their first foray into "psychedelic soul," and it earned them their first Grammy.
