180 gram. Smokey Robinson had a real talent for making music which reached out to the masses without sounding mass-produced. The rhythm-and-blues musician from Detroit, who in later years even became Vice President of Motown Records, made no secret of his patent recipe for climbing the career ladder: for one he presumed that the shorter the record the more often it would be played, and he wrote lyrics which always told a short but complete story. As a result, disc jockeys loved his music and played his songs over and over again. Contrary to many of his black fellow musicians, he didn't want to make an issue of the differences between black and white on the stage - he just wanted to entertain. And this he did this par excellence, as is demonstrated by his vocal group who sing smoothly and with inborn musicality in all ranges of mood. Clearly but gently, Robinson's flexible and somewhat smoky falsetto pervades soft clouds of background sound and the contrasting tightly-knit carpets of sound which The Miracles roll out in front of him. One sees - even planned success can sound light and relaxed.
