Levi Stubbs is No Longer Crying
When I posted Levi Stubbs' Tears by Billy Bragg last November I confessed to owning nothing by the Four Tops. I was quite rightly taken to task by all and sundry.
I am pleased to report that Levi Stubbs is no longer crying as I picked up a copy of their 1968 Greatest Hits on Tamla Motown on my last visit to Stanraer. It is in considerably better nick than last week's British Motown Chartbusters.
So here are Levi, Duke Fakir, Obie Benson and Lawrence Payton in all their glory with two absolute belters from the mercurial pens of Holland, Dozier and Holland.
