Back in the summer we drew your attention to a great new version of the Temptations’ classic ‘Treat Her Like A Lady’ from blue-eyed soulster KYLE MAACK. Kyle (real name Kyle Allen McCarty) is the protégé of Tempts’ mainstay Otis Williams while Kyle’s godfather is sometime Temptation Bruce Williamson, and we’re told that the veteran group were mighty proud of Kyle’s version – they had no choice really…. they sang harmonies on it!
We were also told that ‘Treat’ was the lead single from an EP and that mini album is now widely available. The set is named for the cut ‘Shakey Ground’ – another Tempts’ oldie (it originally appeared on their ‘A Song For You’ album) and Kyle’s version follows the original tough n’ funky template. More interesting, we think, is a slowed down version of the Temptations’ ‘All I Need’. It’s given a soul authenticity via bvs from Temptations Otis Williams and Terry Weeks. The EP concludes with two versions of an original ballad penned by Maack and Otis Williams called, ‘Here I Am.’
KYLE MAACK’S ‘Shakey Ground’ is out now on 10/30 International Records (which is owned by Otis Williams).
