FOUR TOPS. American Detroit vocal quartet who were amongst a number of groups that helped define the legendary Motown sound of the 1960s. Amazingly they remained together for over four decades, having gone from 1953 until 1997 without a single change in personnel. The group was the main male vocal group for the songwriting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland who crafted a stream of hit singles, including two number-one hits ; "I Just Cant Help Myself" (1965) and "Reach Out Ill Be There" (1966) along with other hits "Baby I Need Your Loving" / "Same Old Song" / "Standing In The Shadows of Love" / "Bernadette" (1967). After Holland-Dozier-Holland left Motown in 1967, they enjoyed success with "Walk Away Renee" / "Its All In The Game" / "When She Was My Girl" and "Loco In Acapulco". A change of line-up was finally forced upon the group when Lawrence Payton died on June 20th 1997.
