Standing in the Shadows of Love

A little Motown for your Saturday night.



This 1966 song by the Four Tops was another big hit for the gifted and prolific songrwiting team of Holland-Dozier-Holland. Their first breakthrough came after Eddie Holland gave up his performing career to join his brother Brian and Lamont Dozier, with 1963's 'Heat Wave' performed by Martha and the Vandellas.

Baritone Levi Stubbs (1936-2008) was the lead singer for the Four Tops but never sought top billing, out of solidarity with his bandmates.
