3 Tops

Recommended Posts

Just scanning through my Jamaican 45s and found a track by the 3 Tops.

anyone have any info on them?

ta, muchly.

Don't know the personnel but they were recording from approx 1966 into the early 70's, firstly as Dion Cameron & The Three Tops, then just as Three Tops for Treasure isle, Coxsone etc. The also recorded as The Soul Tops and did a version of Chuck Jackson's Good Things Come To Those Who Wait. The latest record I remember seeing by them was Three Tops Medley issued in 1972.

Thanks for the info Toad,

The one I have is on Trojan (JA)

You Should Have Known c/w Do It Right - The 3 Tops with Tommy McCook & The Supersonics

Is this some kind of reissue?

No reason to think it should be. Is it a green label?

It's a shame that more Jamaican groups didn't take the names of their American counterparts and decrease or add to the membership by one,,,

Just think, they could have had:

The Sweet 2

Soul Brothers 5

The 3 Seasons

The 5 Perfections

The 4 Degrees

Sam & Dave & Kitty

Pic & Sam & Bill

The 8 Souls

The 5 Vandals

Frankie Beverly & the Butler

The 6 Du-Tones

The Girls 2 - Jess, Dot and nobody else...

...Now, where DID I put that blessed coat...:hatsoff2:
