Mini-LP Papersleeve CD Replica

This Elemental Music reissue presents a reissue of Nature Planned It, long unavailable on CD, by one of Motown’s most consistent hitmakers of all the times: The Four Tops. With a lineup lasting for over four decades, The Four Tops were probably the most stable vocal group to emerge from the label in the ‘60s, charting with scores of upbeat love songs featuring Levi Stubbs’ rough hewn lead vocals. Nature Planned It was The Four Tops’ last Motown album before the group departed for ABC/Dunhill Records.
