Four Tops (Pre Motown)

The book distributed the listed titles into two groups, as The Four Tops and for artists they backed on Chateau Records.  The book did not list releases for the Four Aimes (pre Four Tops) and information is too incomplete to include them in this post.


Carolyn Hayes (w Maurice King & His Wolverines) (Vocal by Carolyn Hayes & The Four Tops) – Baby Say You Love Me/ Really, ’56 (Chateau 2001)

(Info says Carolyn Hayes was under contract to Chateau.)


Dolores Carroll (w Maurice King & His Wolverines) (Vocal by Dolores Carroll & The Four Tops) – Everybody Knows/ I Just Can’t Keep The Tears From Tumbling’ Down, ’56 (Chateau 2002)

(Book spelled as Delores.  Scans are as Dolores.)
