The Temptations Do the Temptations is a 1976 album by The Temptations for the Gordy (Motown) label. The album was the group's final release from its original Motown tenure; the Temptations terminated their Motown contract during the recording of this album. As a result, while the group enjoyed the greatest creative control of their career, producing and writing most of the tracks, the album received virtually no promotional support from Motown, who saw little point investing in a group that was on its way out of their doors.

After four unsuccessful years at Atlantic Records, the group would return to Motown for twenty-four more years.
