The Temptations. (1960–)

"Hey Girl" - Autograph Score

Handwritten score sheet for the Temptations' 1973 song "Hey Girl," giving the parts for saxophones, trumpets, trombone, guitar and bass. Written in pencil over six pages on three large double-sided dance score pad sheets printed with nineteen staves, of which only nine have been used. Sheets folded in the center with some edge wear, small edge tears, and light toning; overall very good. Each sheet 18.25 x 12.25 inches (47 x 31.5 cm).

The slow ballad "Hey Girl" opens The Temptations' 1973 album Masterpiece. The present manuscript appears to be from an alternate or incomplete version of the recorded arrangement, although the saxophone solo at the beginning matches the recorded version.

From the the collection of Rosa Parks' lawyer, Gregory Reed, who also represented the family members and Estates of members of various Motown groups, including the Temptations. (16946)
