Released:
Label: Robso Records
Smokey Robinson didn't have to put out a record this good. After all, he's widely celebrated as Motown's first resident genius, with 50 years of hit records behind him. But Smokey gets it right just being himself -- his amazing pipes haven't aged, the backings are organic and free of any modern R&B, and he wrote 11 of the 12 songs (he covers Norah Jones' "Don't Know Why"). The exquisite ballads "Time Flies" and "That Place" rule the day, alongside duets with Joss Stone and India.Arie. Robinson even pays tribute to his huge Latino fanbase with a trilingual blues number costarring Santana.
