Touch is an album by The Supremes, released in the summer of 1971 on the Motown label. It includes the singles: "Nathan Jones" and "Touch", the first charting Supremes single to feature a lead vocal by founding member Mary Wilson. "Touch" was the first post-Diana Ross Supremes single (not counting the Four Tops duet "You Gotta Have Love in Your Heart") to miss the US top 40, peaking at #71.

The LP was the final Frank Wilson-produced Supremes' album. Wilson, who had been the group's main producer since the departure of Ross in early 1970, went on to work with Motown artist Eddie Kendricks. This album also contained liner notes written by Elton John, and sold over 100,000 copies in the USA.[1]
