The Temptations and The Four Tops to Play Stamford's Palace Theatre, 2/6

Related: The Temptations, The Four Tops, Stamford Center for the Arts, Palace Theatre

The Four Tops kept up a string of hits with ABC-Dunhill in the 70s: "Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got)," "Keeper of the Castle," "Are You Man Enough (from the movie Shaft In Africa)," "Sweet Understanding Love," "One Chain Don't Make No Prison" (later covered by Santana), "Midnight Flower" and the disco perennial "Catfish."

The Tops were at #1 again in 1980 with "When She Was My Girl," making them one of the few groups to have hits in three consecutive decades. They also scored R&B Top 40s with the ballads "Tonight I'm Gonna Love You All Over" and "I Believe In You and Me," the original version of the 1996 Whitney Houston smash hit.

In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, The Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Though they would no longer have hits on record, the group continued to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly, a towering Testament to the enduring legacy of the Motown sound they helped shape and define.

For Rolling Stone's 2004 article "The Immortals - The Greatest Artists of All Time," Smokey Robinson remembered: "They were the best in my neighborhood in Detroit when I was growing up (and) The Four Tops will always be one of the biggest and the best groups ever. Their music is forever."
