The Temptations &
The Four Tops
The Monarchs of Motown
With their famed choreography and impeccable harmonies, The Temptations were one of the definitive male vocal groups of the 60s. Over the course of their career, The Temptations have charted 83 Billboard US singles and 44 Billboard Top 10 Hits, including My Girl, Ain’t Too Proud, Papa was a Rolling Stone and I Can’t Get Next to You.
In 1964 Baby I Need Your Loving made The Four Tops stars, and their catalogue is now indispensable to any retrospective of the 60s. Their commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy: #1 hit Reach Out I’ll Be There, Standing In The Shadows Of Love (#2 on the R&B charts) and Bernadette (#3) together marked an extraordinary run of instant classics.
