It was in 1962 when Eva Boyd was discovered by Carole King and her then husband Gerry Goffin when she was baby sitting for them. They heard her signing a song they had penned for someone else and immediately rush her to the studio to record! Eva Boyd is better known as Little Eva.
You might know this hit by the Four Tops as Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch! The Four Tops were a group of high schoolers who met at a local party and decided to team up.
Another winner from the Four Tops. This group toured for many years with the original members. The Detroit natives started out being called The Four Aims. In 1962 they were signed to Motown Records and Berry Gordy pushed them into more of a jazz-pop sound. Baby I Need Your Lovin' was specifically written for the group.
Of course what list about Motown would be complete without the Temptations? The Temptations hit a record with Smokey Robinson's The Way You Do the Things You Do. and then again Robinson penned another winner for the Temptations back in 1965, called My Girl. Featured in later years in the movie of the same name this song lives on in all our minds and hearts.,
The Supremes with Diana Ross recorded Stop in the Name of Love in 1965. The group was originally a quartet called the Primettes. An accompaning group to the Primes who later went on to be the Temptations.
An era of music that can't compare!
