Why did Motown ever let the Four Tops get away? This album was their last for the label – and it's an excellent one, filled with soul, sweetness, and some of the best arrangements the group had in their later years. The soul component is super-high, with tight group instrumentation that reminds us of the best Philly backing combos of the same time. Dennis Coffey and Wah Wah Ragin are on guitars, Jack Ashford handles percussion, and Leonard Caston adds some nice funky keyboards. The real talent, though, is the group – and Levi Stubbs is in fine fine form on cuts like "She's An Understanding Woman", "I Am Your Man", "If You Let Me", "Nature Planned It", "Walk With Me, Talk With Me Darling", and "Happy (Is A Bumpy Road)". Even includes a great version of Todd Rundgren's wonderful track "We Gotta Get You A Woman". (Side 1 has a mark that clicks on track six. Cover has some wear and a few stains.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics!

20th Century/Westbound, 1975. Very Good+
Classic work from Fantastic Four – who are really hitting their stride vocally, moving into a whole new sound from their work in the late 60s. The groove is a mix of 70s harmony soul and early Westbound disco – and the longish tracks get quite involved, both vocally and arrangement-wise ... LP, Vinyl record album
