Released: July 1964
The story goes that Martha Reeves' peerless call to party was actually an incitement to riot as black residents of Harlem fought pitched battles against white police officers in its month of release. But the dates don't work and there's too much joy in this kinetic blast of a record. It wasn't even ruined by Mick Jagger and David Bowie in 1985. OK, it nearly was.
