Smokey's Family Robinson on the other hand is a virtual masterpiece. In the liner notes, Smokey apparently felt this album was recorded poorly (it was the first in his new home studio), and I simply could not disagree more. Tracks 8 to 14 are his 4th solo album "Smokey's Family Robinson", released February 1976 in the USA on Tamla T6-341S1 and April 1976 in the UK on Tamla Motown STML 12021. Track 15 is a 7" single-only release - "An Old-Fashioned Man" was released October 1976 in the USA on Tamla T-54276F and was taken from the MGM movie "Norman, Is That You?"
Smokey is the debut studio album by American soul singer, songwriter, and producer Smokey Robinson. It was released on June 19, 1973, by Tamla Records and was Robinson's first solo record after his departure from The Miracles. The album featured the single "Sweet Harmony", which was his tribute to his former singing partners in the Miracles: Bobby Rogers, Pete Moore and Ronnie White. Smokey was arranged by Dave Blumberg, Gene Page and Willie Hutch
A Quiet Storm was Smokey’s third solo album, released on 26 March 1975, and by far and away his best to that point. The first two were not without their moments, but it seemed as if Smokey was reaching for a style that only really coalesced here. The mature singer-songwriter chiefly concerned with relationship issues was a successful musical trope of the first half of the 70s, and while Motown had tried to nurture such a figure before, particularly in the two Valerie Simpson albums they released, Smokey Robinson was the artist equipped for the role. Smokey Robinson could have been accused of over-optimism when he wrote ʻHappy (Love Theme From Lady Sings The Blues)’, basing it on Michel Legrand’s theme from the movie – but not until after the movie had been completed, reputedly to Berry Gordy’s chagrin as he was highly impressed with the song.

Arriving between Smokey’s glorious late-period singles with the Miracles and 1975’s trend-setting Quiet Storm, these two LPs tend to get overlooked in the grand scheme of things - particularly because they didn’t burn up the charts, producing no big hit singles - but this disc proves they’re compelling transitional albums, records where Robinson finds his solo voice while coming. Pure Smokey consolidates Smokey Robinson’s progressions on Smokey, retaining the adventurous maturity of subject matter - in particular, Robinson remains fixated on family, paying tribute to the sister who raised him on It’s Her Turn to Live, noting the passing generations on She’s Only a Baby Herself, and expressing The Love Between Me and My Kids - but moving firmly into the.
