Four Tops On Broadway

LP (Item 37366) Motown, 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-

The Four Tops weren't the first of the Motown groups to get the broadway treatment, but they do a pretty nice job with it! Thanks to some swinging help from producer Frank Wilson, the quartet manage to still shine even though they're shackled with a set of tunes from over-blown broadway shows of the late 50s and 1960s. Tracks include "I Want To Be With You", "On The Street Where You Live", "What Did I Have That I Don't Have", "For Once In My Life", and "Make Someone Happy". Also features "Hello Broadway".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Original stereo pressing with deep groove. Cover has a small cutout hole.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Syreeta's second album for Motown – and a set that really expands the groove from the first!

A smoking live performance from Diana Ross – a double-length set that offers up the lady in all full aspects of her glory!

Marvin Gaye & Diana Ross

Diana & Marvin
Motown, 1973. Very Good Gatefold
A surprisingly nice album – even if you're not a fan of Diana Ross! Given that Marvin and Diana are standing back to back on the front cover, we kind of get the idea that there wasn't as much sympathy in the session as on some of Marvin's classic duet sides from the 60s with Tammi Terrell ...

Motown, 1973. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
This one was kind of Motown's answer to the Wattstax albums – a double live set, recorded in Chicago during the Push Expo, headed by Jesse Jackson.

Tell Me A Lie
Motown, 1982. Near Mint-
A late set from legendary deep soul diva Betty Lavette – recorded as a one-off for Motown in the early 80s, but done in a deep soul style that has plenty of 70s touches!
