Temptation Eyes by The Grass Roots

My wife made a wonderful dinner Saturday evening. She had the radio on while preparing the meal, and decided to keep it on while we enjoyed our feast. The radio was set to the local oldies station, and they were in the middle of a mix of some really good music. When 'Temptation Eyes' by The Grass Roots came on the radio, it got the whole Lost Soul of Rock and Roll family grooving at the dinner table.

The Grass Roots were a fantastic L.A. based band back in the late 60s and early 70s, and shame on you if you don't know their hits like 'Let's Live for Today', 'Midnight Confessions', 'Two Divided by Love', and 'Temptation Eyes'. The band featured the vocals of Warren Entner and Rob Grill, but don't forget that Creed Bratton (The Office) was the band's guitarist from 1966 to 1969. Today's selection is 'Temptation Eyes', which hit #15 on the U.S. charts in 1971. Enjoy.
