In the Renaissance, when the arts flourished, a young artist perfected his work in the studio of a master. Whatever the medium, he worked to the day when he'd complete one piece of work which would reflect everything he'd learned from his master.
It was called his "masterpiece."
Today, the recording studio might be compared to the master's studio of the Renaissance. But in the recording studio, a young artist is his own master, free to develop his talents as far as they'll go. Free to create his own masterpiece.
"Masterpiece." An achievement. A title.
"Masterpiece." By the Temptations.
Produced by Norman Whitfield.
