"... his instincts for the perfect hook, the well-placed quaver and the arresting turn of phrase mean that even his seven-minute songs retain the thematic compactness and lustrous patina of Motown singles ... offers irrepressibly upbeat lyrics, mellow and jazz-tinged instrumental passages, bouquets of sweetness and restrained funk flavourings. Intriguing production touches abound. ... evidence that one of black music's brightest lights is still a dynamic creative force."
- Rolling Stone

Smokey Robinson's third solo album, released in 1975, is considered among the best soul albums of the 1970s and launched the Quiet Storm radio format. His most successful solo outing to that point, with its three hit singles the album broke into the US top 40.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
