Detroit, United States (1965 – 1972)

Smokey Robinson and the Miracles was the performing and recording name from 1965 to 1972 of renowned American R&B/soul group The Miracles.

Over their career across the 1960s, 70s and 80s, the Miracles were one of Motown’s signature acts with over forty top 40 R&B hits.

    Iconic romantic soul-pop from the Sixties and Seventies. Saw Smokey solo in Austin, wished he'd had the Miracles with him, but no worries, it was a great show.

    Smokey is a lyrical genius. He has one of the smoothest falsetto's in music and the Miracles provide some of the best vocals. They are just as smooth as Smokey in the background. Claudette Robinson provides a important softness to the background harmonies. Just perfect especially on "Here I Go Again".

    Much Better Off should be in the top 5. Probably would be if it weren't for the 30 versions of the same song, haha
