"ya know, in Arab lands they'd set out a plate"
Agreed, I actually shed tears. The Four Tops and that combination of Levi Stubbs and Holland/Dozier/Holland is unmatched in my musical cannon. You can say that Motown was too polished and that Stax was better (hey, there's room for everyone, there's little need to rank order music). Their last and best single, Bernadette, is one of the most desperate pleas for love ever recorded. Amazing stuff.
