In 1984, Edwards, solo once more, made one of the great duets of the decade, "Don't Look Any Further," with Siedah Garrett. It narrowly missed the top of Billboard's R&B chart. There weren't many numbers that better combined sensuality, vocal assertiveness, excellent production, and a superb arrangement. The follow-up, "(You're My) Aphrodisiac," was a Top 20 R&B single, but things then cooled considerably. "Coolin' Out" was Edwards' final hit, peaking at number 23, but he returned to the Temptations in 1987. Edwards briefly teamed with ex-Temptations David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks in the trio Ruffin/Kendricks/Edwards, but nothing was ever released. Along with other members of the Temptations, he was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989. During the following three decades, he continued to perform, first as the leader of Dennis Edwards & the Temptations and then, after a legal dispute with original group member Otis Williams, the Temptations Review Featuring Dennis Edwards. Edwards died in February 2018 at the age of 74. ~ Ron Wynn
