THE TEMPTATIONS are notable for their success with Motown Records during the 60’s and 70’s and
have sold 10’s of millions of albums, making them one of the most successful groups in music history!
For over 40 years The Temptations have prospered, with an avalanche of smash hits, and sold-out
performances throughout the world! “The crowds are bigger, the sales are sizzling,” says one
industry report. “The outpouring of affection for this super-group has never been greater”.
THE FOUR TOPS were among a number of groups, who established the Motown Sound heard around
the world during the 1960’s. Their first Motown hit, ‘Baby I Need Your Loving’ in 1964, made them stars
and their sixties track record on the label is indispensable to any retrospective of the decade. Their no. 1
hit songs include; ‘I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)’, and “It’s The Same Old Song” . Their
commercial peak was highlighted by a romantic trilogy; the no. 1 hit “Reach Out I’ll Be There”, “Standing
In The Shadows Of Love” and “Bernadette”. Other top hits included; “Baby I Need Your Loving”, “Ask
The Lonely”, “Shake Me, Wake Me (When It’s Over)”, “Something About You”, “You Keep Running
Away”, “7-Rooms Of Gloom”, “Ain’t No Woman (Like The One I’ve Got), and “When She Was My Girl”,
making them one of the few groups to have hits in three consecutive decades.
In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of
