David Ruffin (album)
|Studio album by David Ruffin|
|David Ruffin chronology|
David Ruffin is the self-titled album from singer David Ruffin. Coming out after Motown refused to put out his proposed third album in 1971 (released as David in 2004), Ruffin was likewise no longer afforded access to "A-list" material and support musicians. This album in many ways was a collaborative effort with Bobby Miller, who produced the album. Miller also had a hand in composing eight of its tracks. Although the album made it into the US R&B Top Five, it underperformed on the US pop charts, peaking at number 168. Those slipping figures were indicators of the increasing lack of interest from Motown in Ruffin's career.
