The Temptations were born in Detroit in 1961, a marriage of members of the Distants and the Primes, and signed to Motown. “Dream Come True” became the group’s first chart hit, peaking at #22 R&B in 1962. In 1965, “My Girl” became their first #1 pop and R&B hit, and their first signature song. They hit #1 R&B again with “Get Ready” in 1966. In 1972, “Papa was a Rollin’ Stone” hit #1 pop and won two Grammys®. In total, The Temptations have claimed 43 Top 10 R&B singles (14 #1) and 17 pop Top 10s (four #1). In 1989, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The Four Tops were founded in Detroit, Michigan as The Four Aims. Lead singer Levi Stubbs and groupmates Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson and Lawrence Payton remained together for over four decades, going from 1953 to 1997 without a single change in personnel. Their hit singles included two Billboard Hot 100 number-one hits, “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)” and “Reach Out I’ll Be There.”
