Smokey Robinson - "Smokin'- Solo Albums 5"
In the history of Motown there is only one person more important in its evolution and everlasting success than Berry Gordy, and that's Smokey Robinson - the only artist at the label to also become a class songwriter, producer and company vice-president. Robinson was beginning to reap the benefits of a reluctant solo career by May 1978, when he wowed an enthusiastic crowd at Los Angeles' Roxy nightclub. A recording of that night became the double-live LP Smokin', an extraordinary document of the man in his vocal prime - which, until now, has never been on CD.
