LEVI STUBBS B-DAY, FOUR TOPS PODCAST : REACH OUT I’LL BE THERE / BERNADETTE / IT’S THE SAME OLD SONG etc

Σαν σήμερα, 6 Ιουνίου 1936, στο Ντιτρόιτ των ΗΠΑ γεννήθηκε ο Levi Stubbs, lead τραγουδιστής των Four Tops [τα υπόλοιπα μέλη: Abdul “Duke Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson, Lawrence Payton].
Οι
Four Tops ήταν ένα από τα φωνητικά γκρουπ που [μαζί με τους Miracles, τους Temptations, τις Supremes κ.ά.] καθόρισαν τον ήχο της Motown, υπό την αιγίδα του ιδιοφυούς τρίο συνθετών & παραγωγών Holland-Dozier-Holland.
Ο
Levi Stubbs είναι ένας από τους πιο αγαπημένους μου τραγουδιστές όλων των εποχών, από οποιοδήποτε μουσικό είδος, και το ίδιο ισχύει για κάποια από τα τραγούδια των Four Tops.

On this date, June 6, 1936, Levi Stubbs, lead singer of Four Tops was born in Detroit, USA [the other members: Abdul “Duke Fakir, Renaldo “Obie” Benson, Lawrence Payton].
The
Four Tops were one of the vocal groups that [along with Miracles, Temptations, Supremes, etc.] defined the Motown sound, under the auspices of the legendary trio Holland-Dozier-Holland.
Levi Stubbs is one of my most beloved singers of all time, of any musical genre, and the same goes for some of Four Tops‘ songs.
