Four Tops make a return trip to Cache Creek
BROOKS, CA – No story about Motown music would be complete without mentioning legends the Four Tops – who return to Cache Creek Casino Resort on July 31 at 9 p.m. to perform in the intimate Club 88. Fans of the super group will have their chance this summer to come and hear the golden sound of the 60’s and let the Four Tops take them back to the days when music was just a little “smoother.”
One of Motown's most consistent hit-makers and its longest-lived lineup (40 years), the Four Tops were one of the most stable and consistent vocal groups to emerge from Motown Records in the '60s, rising to the top of the charts with scores of upbeat love songs. The number of top hits produced by the group is staggering.
Their first release as a soul group in 1964, “Baby I Need Your Loving,” reached the Top 20 in the States, followed up by 1965’s release “I Can't Help Myself,” which went straight to the top of the charts. Success continued for the group with “Reach out I'll Be There” making the top spot in the charts on both sides of the Atlantic in 1966. The Four Tops also scored a hit that year with the songs “Bernadette” and “It's The Same Old Song.” By 1967, their sound had diversified, but they still earned hits with '”Walk Away Renee” and “If I Were a Carpenter.”
In 1970 they added chart-toppers “It's All in the Game,” and the ballad “Still Waters (Run Deep),” then teamed up with The Supremes for the first of three albums together. In 1971 they hit again with “MacArthur Park” and the group’s Renaldo 'Obie' Benson co-wrote Marvin Gaye's classic song “What's Going On” that same year. One final album was released for the legendary Motown label entitled “Nature Planned it” in 1972, and several excellent albums followed, including “Main Street People” in 1973 and “Meeting of the Minds” in 1974.
