“Reach Out” by Four Tops - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1967Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

Issued in July 1967, and the final Four Tops LP to be produced by Motown’s main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland, who would depart the label later in the year over money disputes. This was the group’s most successful album and included six of the Four Tops’ Top 20 U.S. singles - the #1 hit “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, the Top 10 singles “Standing In The Shadows Of Love”, “Bernadette”, the Top 20 “7-Rooms Of Gloom”, and their Top 20 covers of Tim Hardin’s “If I Were A Carpenter” and the Left Banke’s “Walk Away Renée”. Rounding out the LP are a pair of Monkees covers, “Last Train To Clarksville” and “I’m A Believer”, a cover of The Association’s “Cherish”, and the originals “Wonderful Baby" and “What Else Is There To Do (But Think About You)”. Action packed!
