Most mid-'60s pop and R&B albums are like Hamburger Helper: a little meat and a lot of filler. But Smokey Robinson and the Miracles gratifyingly confound that notion on the first half of this two-album collection. Not surprisingly, it's also the first album to give vocalist-writer-producer Robinson star billing in his veteran band. Cut in the midst of producing chores for the Temptations and Marvin Gaye (Robinson was also a Motown label VP), Going to a Go-Go was something of a minor tour de force for Robinson, who cowrote all but one of the album's songs. Although its name refers to a partying dance craze (the origins of the infectious hit title track), it's an album largely centered around bittersweet, emotionally charged hits like "Tracks of My Tears" and "Ooo Baby Baby," as well as unusually strong cuts like "My Girl Has Gone" and "A Fork in the Road." By contrast, the second half here often sounds haphazard and less focused, as could be expected from a quickly produced sequel to a massive hit. Still, Robinson's glorious tenor illuminates even such standard fare as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me." Previously unreleased bonus tracks include the stereo mix of "It's Fantastic," a fellow Away We Go-Go outtake of the lounge standard "Goin' Out of My Head," and a glorious, impassioned 1966 live rendition of "A Fork in the Road." --Jerry McCulley

"GoingToAGo-Go"だけでも五つ星!!

2in1CD+ボーナストラック3曲の丁寧なリイシューです。
65年に"GoingToAGo-Go" 66年に"AwayWeAGo-Go"が発表されています。
MOTOWN SOUND全盛時の作品群で,特にスローな曲の傑作が多く収録してある"Going"はMiraclesのベストだと思います。複数プロデュースの
"AwayWe"は作品によってややムラがあるものの勢いはあります。おまけの3曲もライヴやLittleAnthonyのカヴァー曲で!です。珍しい写真やオリジナルカヴァーアートを損ねることのないブックレットもありがたいです。
似た内容のUK盤もありますがこちらの方がお買い得です。
それにしてもSmokeyの若くてセクシーな歌声は魅力的だなぁ!
