A great Four Tops tune
What a great performance. The 4 Tops did some awesome ballads. Just heard Shorty Long's version which isn't too shabby either.
Whenever I listen to this song I have shivers all over my body.
That is one hell of a good album
Thanks a million for posting this tune. Wow! I've searching for this one for a long time. I had this tune on their Four Tops Album (First Album,Baby I Need your Lovin').
Played the heck out this tune while on R&R in Hong Kong 1965.
i think this is Larry singing lead, i know there is a version he sings lead on, im not sure if its this one or a different version, Larry and Levi sound kinda similar
… and great days they sounded like Kirke.
July of 1964 I lived just south of the Lodge freeway on Indiana Street sandwiched between Fenkell and the Lodge. I heard this single millions of times, it seems. I remember sitting on a garbage can in the alley behind our house listening to a group of bruthas singing "Ohh Baby Baby" a capella. I don't live all that far away from that old neighborhood–just on the other side of 8 Mile Road now–but those days are gone forever.
Thanks Dave. I take great pride in my collection and enjoy sharing it
I can hear that a bit
Daddy, this is the flip of "Baby I Need Your Loving."
I do think it's Levi on lead. The Supremes HDH album is awesome
"Shake Me, Wake Me" kicks ass
There aren't any 4 Tops bombs I know of either. There are a few not as good as most, but the 4 Tops consistently put out good cuts – even the flips and album cuts. Some of the flips and album cuts were as good as the hits
The "map" label may be the most recognizable label that ever existed. You could show this label to people under 21 who never owned a record and they very well might recognize the label.
I love the 4 Tops as well
Nice, sounds like a blending of sam cooke's 'you send me' , and 'stand by me'
Shorty Long used the exact same instrumental track as the flipside for his hit, "Function At The Junction", released March 11, 1966 –
This Four Tops track is the flipside of their hit, "Baby I Need Your Loving", released July of 1964-
Very nice! Was this an A-side or a flip of something? Nu 2 me.
Holland, Dozier, Holland . . . a magical phrase. (Check out a great album: The Supremes Sing HDH.) This is very nice. Doesn't sound like Levi on lead, but I may be wrong. My ear's not perfect. Thanks very much.
the Four Tops were certainly a great group!
