Much has been written about Smokey's contribution to the next volume of the Great American Songbook. He has a dozen or so candidates that either he wrote or produced or performed or did all at once. With a career that now spans 6 decades, Smokey still sounds relevant. His voice is the definitive falsetto that has inspired a legion of vocalist through the years. Here in this return to form, we get an album of new material after waiting a long, long time. His last album was a splendid collection from the Great American Songbook, entitled "Timeless Love". Prior to that, I believe he recorded a gospel/inspirational album. With assist from the genius of Carlos Santana, Joss Stone and India Arie, he sounds contemporary and refreshing. His take on the Jackson 5 classic, "I Want You Back" is transformational and "Don't Know Why" could have been written by him, it so perfectly suits him. "One Time" is a smoldering midtempo cut that breeds seduction. They don't make them like they used to.......Babyface may at one time been the "new Smokey", but, who needs a facsimile when the real one is still oh so relevant. For me, "You're Just My Life" is the jewel in a setting of jewels. That romantic swoon so easily associated with his best work is taken to new heights in this duet w/India Arie. If you know "Give Her Up" or "Much Better Off", classic B-side copyrights from Smokey at his first creative peak in the 60s, this song stands right up there with his finest work. Equally as compelling is his duet w/Joss Stone, "You're the One for Me". On a more sober note, the album has been released independently on Robso (a mergering of his first/last name) through ADA. That leaves on Stevie still actively recording for whatever is left of Motown/Universal as we once knew it.Read more ›

Everyone knows about Smokey Robinson's velvety, smooth voice and awesome songwriting skills. But, I was skeptical when I ran across this CD. I wondered if Smokey could still do it? Did he still have it? The answer is a resounding Yes! Every track is fresh, romantic, relevant. Wow. I can let this play through all day long. It's perfect to soothe your nerves if you're stuck in a traffic jam, or relaxing in a bubble bath, if you're trying to spark some romance. Joss Stone, India Arie only serve to enhance Smokey's sound. Carlos Santana gives the flavor like only he can. The lyrics and music to all the tracks is lovely. It's all good, but tracks with that EXTRA are:

You're The One For Me

One Time

Please Don't Take Your Love

Whatcha Gonna Do

You're Just My Life

Oh, and the hidden track, Smokey's rendition of "I Want You Back" done Smokey style, with a little twist on the verse
is the whip!!!!

You also can't beat the nice price. Own It!

You got to give someone credit when they're able to maintain their own sound AND do something new for them at the same time. During the 90's up until now I've basically ignored Smokey Robinson's musical output,mainly due to the fact they always seem to come somewhat unnoticed. In this case I decided to make a go of it and I was not disappointed. Smokey is one of those people who throughout the years,even during rough times has continually respected musical quality and good taste and this is an album that's full of both. It's a mixture of his trademark understated soul balladry,jazzy tunes and even some lite funk. Everyone knows since the A Quiet Storm days that Smokey was going to survive for many years to come as musical entity.Even Aretha Franklin made a point once he's the kind of artist who is well established and "kind of rolls right along" and in terms of his own songwriting style keeps rolling on it's merry way through "Time Flies","This Place","Whatcha Gonna Do" and "Satisfy You" and with people like Paul Jackson,Phil Upchurch and Ray Parker Jr forming the core of such a versitile rhythm section even those mellower selections have a lot to offer within Robinson's breezy,almost pastoral (as a friend of mine put it) flavors. He even makes room for some slow crawling funky grooves such as "One Time" and "Please Don't Take Your Love",a song whose grit is helped along by an appearance by Carlos Santana. In terms of other guest stars Joss Stone on "You're The One For Me" and India.Arie on "You're Just My Life" add the great duet touch on two jazzier grooves with some nice rolling rhythms.Read more ›

i bought this cd last week and I have it on my i-pod,I listen to it in my car and it is 4a.m. and I just had to hear this cd again.As soon as I got to the second song I knew I loved this cd and I proceeded to call and share my happiness with this cd with my brother and at least 3 of my best friends! The title song reminds me of being with someone and not wanting that time to ever be over;it brought back so many memories and even made me want to fall in love again;something i had given up on.Smokey is as good today as he was when I danced to when I was much younger than I am now and I intend to go back and make sure I have all of his music I used to love so much.Smokey makes you relive all those special times when you have been so in love and Lord,I want to feel that way again."That Place" makes you want to open up that place in your heart for someone to come back into.Whatcha Gonna Do makes you feel a little frisky and and a little naughty again.It reminds me of someone i loved and when he talked,I was so entranced with his mouth,I could not always concentrate on what he was saying.The thoughts this cd brings to mind are too numerous to mention;but Smokey and his music have brought me back to life again;thank-you so much Smokey!
