MOTOWN SNAPSHOT FLASHBACK! JIMMY RUFFIN 1967

April 17th, 2017

JIMMY RUFFIN SINGS TOP TEN.’ If there was ever a “greatest hits” album Motown came close having produced for Jimmy Ruffin, this LP was it. By the time of its release in early-1967, it produced 4 singles, three songs having made the Billboard Hot 100. The first single off the album, As Long As There Is L-O-V-E Love,” was initially released in 1965, but failed to crack the singles chart. What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted,” was released during the summer of 1966, and it would be Ruffin’s biggest. The single broke top ten (#7 Pop; #6 R&B) and stayed 17 weeks riding the chart. A follow-up, I’ve Passed This Way Before” (Pop #17), was released later that year. The fourth single off this album, Gonna Give Her All The Love I Got” (Pop #29; R&B #14) made Billboard in February 1967. It was also Ruffin’s last Top 40 single with Motown.
