5.0 out of 5 stars Motown group at their peak, 9 May 2003

This review is from: On Top & Reach Out (Audio CD)
The first of the two albums here, On top from 1966, includes two American hits, the first of which was Shake me wake me when it’s over. The second, Loving you is sweeter than ever, also charted in Britain. The album also includes a cover of the Beatles classic, Michelle, and a couple of songs from the Great American Songbook – In the still of the night (a Cole Porter song that was a huge hit for Tommy Dorsey in 1937) and Quiet night of quiet stars – which are most impressive. The remainder of this album is made up of obscure but excellent songs written by Motown’s own songwriters.
The second album, Reach out from 1967 contains six major international hit singles (they all charted at least top twenty in Britain as well as America), although four of them had already been hits before the album was released. The six hits were Reach out I’ll be there, Standing in the shadows of love, Bernadette, 7 rooms of gloom, Walk away Renee and If I were a carpenter. The album also includes impressive covers of two Monkees hits (Last train to Clarksville, I’m a believer) and Cherish (an American hit for the Association).
This is the strongest of the Four tops twofers, containing plenty of hits as well as demonstrating the variety of material that they could do.
