    I grew up listening to Motown.... Marvin, the 4 Tops, the Temps, Martha, Barbara Lewis (I was never a big Supremes guy). A lot of people don't realize that Smokey wrote hit after hit for all the aforementioned performers (and for Berry Gordy's pockets). These tracks prove that he was equally gifted in front of the mike. Listen to the heart-wrenching beginning of 'Oooh, baby baby', "I did you wrong, my heart went out to play...." Later in the song his vocal gymnastics sound effortless (until you try to sing along). Smokey never breaks a sweat. All the GET UP AND DANCE hits are here, 'Goin to a gogo', 'shop around', 'second that emotion', 'Mickey's monkey'.... In my opinion, tho, where Smokey and the Miracles really shine is on such cuts as 'mirage', 'more love','I may not be the one you want, 'Yesterlove'.... They're all here, and you won't be able to get the volume high enough. I don't think you can get a better profile of this great group on a single disc. Now if I could just find a Temptations hit compilation that includes '(Loneliness made me realize) Its you that I need'....
