• In 1988, The Four Tops left Motown (the company for whom they recorded enduring classics such as ‘Reach Out I’ll Be There’ and ‘I Can’t Help Myself’) after a third stint to make one album, INDESTRUCTIBLE for Arista Records
• With Arista founder Clive Davis helming the project as executive producer, the original members of the legendary quartet (Duke Fakir, Lawrence Payton, Levi Stubbs and Obie Benson) worked with several producers –Narada Michael Walden (fresh from success with Arista artists Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin); Steve Barri (who had produced the group at ABC/Dunhill Records) and Bobby Sandstrom; their former Motown colleague Lamont Dozier working with superstar Phil Collins; pop and rock star Huey Lewis; the team of Jerry Knight & Aaron Zigman (who had worked with The Jets and The Pointer Sisters among others); and singer/songwriter Albert Hammond.
• The album enjoyed its’ greatest success in Europe: in the UK, “Loco In Acapulco” (co-written by Phil Collins for the film, “Buster” in which he starred in the lead role) reached the Top 10; while the infectious title track – with a vocal cameo from Motown pal Smokey Robinson - also became a Top 30 UK hit and Top 100 US pop and Top 40 R&B charted single. Other standouts include a US-charted duet with fellow Detroit friend Aretha Franklin on ‘If There A Love There Was’ (also featuring Arista’s Kenny G on sax) and ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine’ (with a sax solo from Clarence Clemons).
• This SoulMusic Records’ expanded edition reissue includes six bonus tracks including the UK single of ‘Loco In Acapulco’ and three remixes of the track, an extended version of ‘Indestructible’ and a non-album ‘B’ side ‘The Four Of Us,’ written by group member Lawrence Payton as well as liner notes by renowned UK writer Charles Waring including quotes from producer Narada Michael Walden.
