Reach Out is an album recorded by the Four Tops, issued on Motown Records in July 1967. It was the final Four Tops LP to be produced by Motown's main songwriting and production team, Holland–Dozier–Holland, who departed the label in late 1967 over money disputes.
Along with Reach Out, I’ll Be There, the Four Tops were infusing soul and R&B with new levels of maturity and taste, making the songs impossible to ignore and validating them with a new certainty of purpose. This was a time when formal albums were created around a single hit, with the album Reach Out being a true exception to the rule, though one should certainly consider that by this time, the marketplace was catering to those who were used to purchasing full and thoughtful albums, demanding that 33’s be laced with a body of material that was cohesive
Reach Out’ was on the charts in no time, and made No. 1 pop when it took over at the Hot 100 summit from the Association’s ‘Cherish. As its two-week reign ended there, it started another on the R&B register, and a three-week run at the UK summit. Even if it’s widely recorded that the producers had Bob Dylan‘s concurrent success in mind when they requested similar urgency in Stubbs’ vocal performance, it’s still instructive to look back at how the Tops themselves described the song. So they went away and came back with ‘Reach Out And I’ll Be There’. I think it’s the best piece of folk-rock that’s been around in a long time. Not too many who made it a transatlantic No. 1 would necessarily call it folk-rock, but they’d all call it a soul classic. Reach Out I’ll Be There’ is on the Four Tops’ Reach Out album, which can be bought here. Follow uDiscover’s Four Tops Best Of playlist.

The Four Tops recorded this in just two takes, and had practically forgotten about the song until it was released, assuming it was a "throwaway" album track. Motown boss Berry Gordy had other ideas and released it as a single. Gordy had a knack for identifying hit songs, and got this one right. This was one of many hits the nd team wrote for The Four Tops They just missed having seven Top 10 records when "Still Water (Love)" in 1970 and "When She Was My Girl" in 1981 both peaked at
Though it's one of the best Four Tops records of the '60s, Reach Out still feels weighted down by a few vain attempts at adult pop crossover. It certainly starts out right, with the glorious "Reach out, I'll Be There," the group's second pop/R&B chart-topper. After a faithful cover of the Left Banke's "Walk Away Renee," though, listeners are forced to sit through trite versions of "If I Were a Carpenter," "Last Train to Clarksville," and "I'm a Believer" to get to real highlights like the dramatic, impassioned.
