''For Lovers Only'' is a 1996 covers/pop standards album by The Temptations for the Motown label, something of a sequel to their 1967 album ''The Temptations in a Mellow Mood''. The album features the final recordings of Melvin Franklin, who fell ill during recording and died before the album's release. Franklin was replaced on the tracks he does not sing on by P-Funk's Ray Davis. ''For Lovers Only'' was certified 5x Platinum by the RIAA on May 14, 1996.

The album was also the final Temptations album for Ali-Ollie Woodson, who was fired from the group by Otis Williams in 1996.

''For Lovers Only'' was reissued in 2002 with a bonus track, a remix of "Night & Day" as included on the soundtrack to ''What Women Want''. - Wikipedia
