Searching for today's '80s Lost and Found? 'Don't Look Any Further'



You might look at the name Dennis Edwards and say you don’t know this guy at all. But while the name and face may not ring a bell, trust me, you have heard Edwards voice many times. For many years, Edwards was the lead singer of The Temptations and was the voice of such classics such as Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone.

In 1984, Edwards had a solo R&B hit with Don’t Look Any Further that reached No. 2 on the soul charts and No. 72 on the pop charts. The video is a delight starting with a close up of Edwards smacking his lips and then the appearance of a mysterious set of red-gloved hands. The magic hands belong to Siedah Garrett, whose vocals are also featured on fellow glove-lover Michael Jackson and the No. 1 hits Man in the Mirror and I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.

The video fun climaxes when Edwards shows how cool a dude he is and busts out the dancing moves at the 2:20 mark.

Edwards continues to perform under a splinter act called The Temptation Review.
