TCB was a 1968 television special produced by Motown Productions and George Schlatter-Ed Friendly Productions (of Laugh-In fame). The special was a musical revue starring Motown's two most popular groups at the time, Diana Ross & the Supremes and The Temptations. Containing a combination of showtunes, specially prepared numbers, and popular Motown hits, the special was taped before a live studio audience in September 1968 and originally broadcast December 9, 1968 on NBC, sponsored by the Timex watch corporation. The title of the program uses a then-popular acronym, "TCB", which stands for "Taking Care of Business".

The soundtrack from the 1968 television special featuring both The Supremes and The Temptations.

Surprisingly, this television soundtrack featuring the Supremes and the Temptations soared to the pinnacle -- number one -- a studio album by them released earlier climbed to number two on Billboard's Pop Album Chart. More than three decades later, however, T.C.B. is unlistenable. Still, it proved a good vehicle for both groups, and accomplished its goal by helping them cross over, along with getting them gigs in Las Vegas casinos, and prestigious high paying clubs like the Copacabana. Watching the two groups interact and sing these songs on the television special was more enjoyable then listening to the record. T.C.B. is watered down Temptations and Diana Ross & the Supremes. The songs, even the hits, sound campy; the big band didn't help. If a current Urban Contemporary artist released a CD like this today they would be crucified by their fans and magazines like Vibe, Source and Rolling Stone. But it worked: fans bought this album, and a bigger untapped audience discovered the versatility of arguably the best male, and the best female vocal group of all time.
