The Supremes A' Go-Go is the title of an album that The Supremes released on August 25, 1966.

This album holds the distinction of being the very first by an all-female vocal group to reach the #1 spot on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 music chart.

The album spawned two singles: 1966's "Love Is Like An Itchin' In My Heart," and "You Can't Hurry Love" which became the group's seventh single to find the top of the pop singles chart, displacing Donovan's "Sunshine Superman" at the top of the pop chart and Stevie Wonder's version of "Blowin' In The Wind" on the R&B singles chart.

Largely a covers album, "A' Go-Go" featured The Supremes' interpretations of some of their own labelmates' biggest hits, including songs by The Isley Brothers ("This Old Heart of Mine (Is Weak For You)"), The Temptations ("Get Ready") and Martha & The Vandellas ("Come & Get These Memories") among others.
