Hall of Fame Inductee Dennis Edwards talks about Norman Whitfield, the famed Motown songwriter and producer, who was responsible for many of the Temptations' hits during late 1960s and early 1970s, including "Cloud Nine," "Ball of Confusion," "Psychedlic Shack," "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone," and many others.
"Cloud Nine" won Motown its first Grammy Award in 1969 (Best Rhythm & Blues Group Performance, Vocal or Instrumental). "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone" (1972) was a number one hit and earned three Grammy Awards in 1973.
