Yesterday's Dreams is the seventh overall and sixth studio album recorded by the Four Tops, issued by Motown Records in August 1968. The album was recorded as the main Motown songwriting/producing partnership of Holland–Dozier–Holland were leaving the label, and as a result only contains one song from them, "I'm in a Different World", which was released as a single.

There are several other original Motown songs on the album, including the title track, "Remember When", "We've Got a Strong Love (On Our Side)", "Can't Seem to Get You out of My Mind" and a cover of Stevie Wonder's "A Place In The Sun". The rest are cover songs produced by Ivy Jo Hunter and Frank Wilson.
