Motown, 1966. Near Mint- ... Just Sold Out!
One of the hardest, rawest Four Tops album on 60s Motown – a unique live session, recorded at the Roostertail Nightclub in Detroit – with a sound that shows that the Tops could maybe shine even more away from the studio!

One that we heard way too much when it was out, but which we kind of love now!
