The tunes of the Four Tops, along with a few other Motown greats, is like background music that sets the scene for the movie that is My Adolescence. It was the first music that I remember being really aware of. It was always there.
My love affair with The Beatles...and The Stones...and Janis...and Dylan...and all those that came after, in no way diminished my love of Motown. I had more than enough love to go around. And I loved Levi Stubbs and The Four Tops.
