Smokey Robinson Biography (Wikipedia)
William "Smokey" Robinson Jr. (born February 19, 1940) is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and former record executive. Robinson was the founder and frontman of the Motown vocal group the Miracles, for which he was also chief songwriter and producer. Robinson led the group from its 1955 origins as "the Five Chimes" until 1972 when he announced a retirement from the group to focus on his role as Motown's vice president.

However, Robinson returned to the music industry as a solo artist the following year. Following the sale of Motown Records in 1988, Robinson left the company in 1990. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Robinson was awarded the 2016 Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for his lifetime contributions to popular music.

Classic Motown Northern sound - never understood why is midtempo dancer with great spinning and clapping sections was never played out more - late 60ts early 70ts classic soul - smokey at his best

This is a great thread for me. I'd like to contribute with a non Motown cover that is a firm favourite on the Sweet Soul front. Latin Soul perfection.
