Product Description:

Smokey Robinson invented a style of songwriting and singing that influenced artists as diverse as James Taylor, Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Boyz ll Men and Linda Ronstadt, to name just a few. Smokey's gentle, sensual vocals are effortlessly delivered but completely captivating. No less an authority and devoted fan than Bob Dylan once called Smokey Robinson, "the greatest living poet in a America today." 1975's A QUIET STORM contains all the patented Smokey touches: the sweet irresistible melodies; the slow-dancing ballads; the jump-for-joy love songs. You can't go wrong with a Smokey Robinson record, no matter what it's decade of origin, but this is perhaps his definitive '70s album, defining a smooth, contemporary R&B style that would be emulated for decades to come. As exemplified by A QUIET STORM, Smokey's gift is constant and genuine.
