Smokey Robinson = Motown hit machine.

Smokey Robinson and The Miracles = even more of a Motown hit machine.

That’s really all that needs to be said about Smokey Robinson, isn’t it?  I could go on about what a smooth singer Smokey is, what a stylish performer he’s been.  But I’d just be repeating things that have been said so many times before in so many places.

When it comes to his involvement in some of the most memorable soul and R&B music ever created, it’s staggering to look at what he and The Miracles achieved.

Sometimes it’s better to just listen than to talk about it.
