The Four Tops were one of soul music’s most popular and long-lived vocal groups. This quartet from Detroit endured for more than forty years without a single change in personnel. Moreover, they charted hits at every stage in their lengthy career. Although they are best remembered for the records they made at Motown in the Sixties, the Four Tops also had substantial success at such labels as ABC, Casablanca and Arista in subsequent decades. They even returned twice to Motown later in their career. All the while they remained a solid draw on the touring circuit, performing a hundred shows per year.
