    Motown Eddie, of the three you mentioned, “Since You’ve Been Gone” may have had the most potential to chart big as a single for the Tops.

    Four Tops Second Album

    This certainly was one the Tops’ strongest albums, with three songs becoming very successful singles: “I Can’t Help Myself,” “It’s The Same Old Song” and “Something About You.” But there are other...

    I first heard “When The Lovelight Starts Shining In His Eyes” in late ’63 and bought the single shortly thereafter.

    Thanks, StuBass1, for explaining how the nomination process works. It helps make sense of why some who deserve this honor may never get it.

    That’s a very good question daviddesper. The tune did a little better on Cashbox (#10) and was #1 for eight weeks (!) on the Billboard r&b chart. It should have easily made the top five on Bb’s pop...

    I think you’re right marv2. If you compare the backing vocals on the Supremes’ and Kim Weston’s versions there is a difference. Sounds like Mary, Flo and one or more Andantes.

    Very good vocals by Martha. This recording, however, sounds to me like a Martha solo effort rather than a Martha & The Vandellas or even a Martha & The Andantes work. The instrumentation barely...

    Why wasn’t this Four Tops song a big hit?

    I’ve been listening to the alternate (strings) version of “Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever.” It’s a great song, in my opinion, especially in this mix. But the recording didn’t do too well on the...

    It seems to me that whichever version I listen to, I find the backing singers sounding anonymous and murky; a lost opportunity to have made this a very good recording.
