Recording Reach Out was a return to The Four Tops songs and Holland-Dozier-Holland material for Peter.  He had first recorded a song of theirs for his 1st Album and the Virgil Brothers repertoire included Four Tops' numbers.  Although Peter left the New Seekers before the release of the Peter, Paul and Marty album, his vocals can clearly be heard soaring on this track.
