Lecture 8 Mid-Sixties One of Motown Records’ earliest and most exciting vocal groups, Marth and The Vandellas achieved two Top Ten hits before the ascendancy of The Supremes. In 1964, their Motown classic Dancing in the Streets hit No. 1 on both the Pop and R&B charts. Martha Reeves was the first person to write a tell-all book on Motown Records. Martha clashed with Berry Gordy demanding answers to business questions that most other Motown artist didn’t ask until years after they left the label. The Four Tops They never had a personal change in 40 years. They signed to Motown in 1964. The Four Tops never fought with each other and never clashed with Motown. Holland, Dozier, Holland (H-D-H) were the Four Tops main songwriters. They became the number 1 song writing team even more than Lennon-McCartney of The Beetles. Baby I Need Your Loving – The Four Tops (1965)
