A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 15

The Four Tops – I Can’t Help Myself – TMG 515

With the release of this single, the Tamla Motown Label in the UK sealed its biggest hit to date and gave the world a song that is still a staple of parties, weddings and northern soul events. This song has been described, with some justification, as “the best dance track ever recorded” and it really need no introduction as the opening notes set out exactly what we have.

There are many great vocalists within the Motown stable, but Levi Stubbs, the Four Tops lead singer, takes some beating for the soul dripping from every note of every one of his records.

Roll back the carpet, turn up the volume and dance. “Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch, you know that I love you”
