MOTOWN: FOUR TOPS - REACH OUT I'LL BE THERE

The signature song of the legendary Four Tops, witten by equally legendary songwriting team Holland-Dozie-Holland and played by The Funk Brothers. It went to #1 in October 1966 in the USA being their second #1 there, and also hit #1 in the UK, becoming Motown's second one there following The Supremes' Baby love. 
Four Tops recorded for Motown from 1964 to 1973, and returned back hom in the 1980's and 1990's releases. They are still around.....
The song has been covered by Gloria Gaynor, Human Nature, Michael Bolton, Boyzone, Alessandra Amoroso, Diana Ross, The Jackson 5,  Irene Cara, and recently by 5 After Midnight in their amazing Motown medley, Just to name a few :-)
