Levi Stubbs on the power of prayer

I didn't do Levi Stubbs justice the other day, so I'm posting my own digitized tune which you won't find on YouTube or anyplace else on the Internet, from the 1966 album "The Four Tops Live!", recorded at the Roostertail in Detroit. It gives a great feeling for the Tops in live performance, plus this great line from Stubbs, reminiscent of Jimmy Cliff in "The Harder They Come":

"I was told a long time ago by my father, he said 'Levi', and that's my name, he said 'son, if you ever want your prayers answered, you get up off your knees and do something about it.'"
