Before there were Madonna and Beyonce, there were Four Tops. This analogy is valid in one - and only one - sense: This gorgeous, classic Motown album from 1966 managed to produce no less than six (6) singles, all top-100 charting, some on Pop, some on R&B charts, some on both. Until this album came out, the world of R&B and Soul music pretty much did not know what multimillion-seller album was. And, what a great , beautiful recording it is. Wide-channel stereo magnifies every minute details in the guys voices and gives your speakers a run for the money. The title track (Reach out,I‘ll be there) , penned by legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland just trio as they were experimenting with the counterpoint of classical music (tension-release-tension) is one of the most recognizable soul anthems, and probably one of the most important song of the XX century.The quartet attempted - and to large extent succeeded - in replicating this approach with a string of subsequent hits. The songs are: Reach Out, I’ll be there - Walk away Renee - 7 Rooms of Gloom - If I were a Carpenter - Last Train to Clarksville - I’ll turn to stone - I’m a believer - Standing in the shadows of love - Bernadette - Cherish - Wonderful Baby - What else is there to do. A truly classic piece of Motown vinyl, not to be missed.

·                               CONDITION:

 

·                               RECORD

 

 (IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we  grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)

 

(a)          WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT. This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial  and only moderately visually distracting (nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.

 

(b)          The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!

 

(c)           The record comes in the original stock inner sleeve.

 

(d)          Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!

COVER IS STRONG NEAR MINT,  STILL IN ITS ORIGINAL ►SHRINK WRAP   (A LITTLE WRINKLED BUT ESSENTIALLY WHOLE AND INTACT)
