Released in the summer 1967, Reach Out by the Four Tops defined the sound of young America – exactly the credo of Berry Gordy's Motown Records.
The Holland, Dozier & Holland produced album opens with the title track "Reach Out, I'll Be There", which became the group's second Pop/R&B chart topping single. What follows is a faithful cover of The Left Banke's "Walk Away Renee", a wonderful version of the classic Tim Hardin composition "If I Were A Carpenter" and the uplifting "I'll Turn To Stone". The flip side opens with the iconic Monkees cover "I'm A Believer" (originally written by Neil Diamond), followed by the Four Tops classics "Standing In The Shadows Of Love" and "Bernadette".
A true Soul classic.
