Audio Remasterer: Kevin Reeves.
Arrangers: David Blumberg; Russell Turner; George Tobin; Sonny Burke ; Smokey Robinson.
Both with the Miracles and on his own, Smokey Robinson has established himself as the owner of one of the most sensual voices in R&B. Accordingly, LOVE SONGS features some of Robinson's most romantic tunes from both his solo career and his early Miracles days. From tracks like "Ooo Baby Baby" and "Choosey Beggar" that helped to put the Motown sound on the map in the '60s to later hits like the smooth "Cruisin'" and "Being With You," Smokey's story of love becomes an open book here.
Artist Bio
Smokey RobinsonA founding member of the Miracles at Northern High School, Detroit, in 1955, Smokey Robinson became one of the leading figures in the local music scene by the end of the decade. His flexible tenor voice, which swooped easily into falsetto, made him the group's obvious lead vocalist, and by 1957 he was composing his own variations on the R&B hits of the day. That year he met Berry Gordy, who was writing songs for R&B star Jackie Wilson, and looking for local acts to produce. Vastly impressed by Robinson's affable personality and promising writing talent, Gordy took the teenager under his wing. He produced a series of Miracles singles in 1958 and 1959, all of which featured Robinson as composer and lead singer, and leased them to prominent R&B labels. In 1960 he signed the Miracles to his Motown Records stable, and began to groom Robinson as his second-in-command.In Motown's early days, Robinson was involved in every facet of the company's operations, writing, producing and making his own records, helping in the business of promotion and auditioning many of the scores of young hopefuls who were attracted by Gordy's growing reputation as an entrepreneur. Robinson had begun his career as a producer by overseeing the recording of the Miracles' "Way Over There", and soon afterwards he was charged with developing the talents of Mary Wells and the Supremes. Wells soon became Robinson's most successful protegee: Robinson wrote and produced a sophisticated series of hit singles for her between 1962 and 1964. These records, such as "You Beat Me to the Punch", "Two Lovers" and "My Guy", demonstrated his growing confidence as a writer, able to use paradox and metaphor to transcend the usual banalities of the teenage popular song. A measure of Robinson's influence over Wells' career is the fact that she was unable to repeat her chart success after she elected to leave Motown, and Robinson, in 1964.
