The acapella of the 4th #1 hit in a row for Motown group The Supremes.

"Stop! In The Name of Love" was first released as a single in 1965 becoming a smash hit; one of The Supremes' most notable recordings and one of the most well known songs of the 20th century.
The Supremes' choreography for this song - with one hand on the hip and the other outstretched in a "stop" gesture - is equally legendary. Paul Williams and Melvin Franklin of The Temptations taught the girls the routine backstage in London, before the Supremes' performance on the BBC television special The Sound of Motown, hosted by Dusty Springfield.

The song was featured on their "More Hits by The Supremes" album released in 1965 that was actually a regular studio album although its title implies it is a hits compilation. Stop! Wasnt the only #1 on More Hits as their 5th #1 in a row "Back In My Arms Again" is also featured on that album as well as the top 20 hit "Nothing But Heartaches" that is notorious for breaking the string of #1s The Supremes had created along with song writing/producing team Holland-Dozier Holland (or HDH).
