By a pleasing coincidence, in the month that Motown reissue the first five MIRACLES’ albums, main man SMOKEY ROBINSON releases a sparkling new solo set – ‘Time Flies When You’re Having Fun’ – on his own Robso label. The twelve tracker is SMOKEY’S first full album for three years and it will remind everyone of his legendary and iconic status. The fragile falsetto is still impeccable and can be heard to wonderful effect on the album’s title track, a cover of NORAH JONES’ ‘Don’t Know Why’ and a slowed-down version of the JACKSON 5’s ‘I Want You Back’. Standout, however, is a knee-trembling duet with JOSS STONE – ‘You’re The One For Me’. Read a full review on TOBY WALKER’S famous www.soulwalking.co.uk site.
