"7 Rooms of Gloom".  To me, "I'll Turn To Stone" was the "A" side.  Just like "Don't Look Back" was the "A" side for The Temptations, and "My Baby" was the "B" side.

So many great songs by the Tops.

VERY hard to name my favorite, but might have to go with "Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever" or "Bernadette."  

As a guitar player in a bar band in the mid-60s, I used to love to try to emulate the great Funk Brother Robert White's guitar work on the hard-driving "Something About You." (Robert also did the well known guitar part on "My Girl" by the Temptations.)  

Ivy Jo Hunter and Stevie. Did they write any other songs (other than Loving You Is Sweeter ...) together?

I'll Turn To Stone has always been one of favorites. Definitely had some run on NY Top 40.
