CD Reviews

Superb soul
Richard Dean | London, UK | 10/09/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When other soul acts were "selling out" by coming up with dubious inferior disco tracks (the Spinners, Diana Ross, etc etc), the fabulous Four Tops stuck by their principles and came up with 2 excellent soulful albums for Casablanca Records. The best of that material is excellently remastered for this CD, which also includes the dire "Back to school again". Maybe these aren't the classics from the Motown era, but the Four Tops put in brilliant performances on quality songs. The only problem is that it would have been better to have the whole of the 2 Casablanca albums released, not just a selection of tracks."
Great summation of short period of Tops' career

"In 1981 the Tops signed with Casablanca for a two album deal. While their tenure at Casablanca was short, both albums were among their strongest ever. The highlights are all found here: the retro smash "When She Was My Girl," the bouncy "One More Mountain Left To Climb" and Nobody's Gonna Love You" (co-written by lead singer Levi Stubbs), the romantic "Tonight I'm Gonna Love You All Over," and the wedding staple "I Believe In You And Me" (Levi's performance buries Whitney Houston's hit version). A bonus cut (not on either of the original two albums) is the sassy Grease 2 theme "Back To School Again." It's the only redeeming component of that film. When I interviewed Four Tops member Duke Fakir, he told me this collection was one of the few Tops' cds that he plays in his car. It is easy to see why: When She Was My Girl is the Tops at their most melodic!"
