Vinyl? Check! #27: I AM feeling this!

Smokey Robinson is one of the greatest singer/songwriter/producers of the 20th Century! Take for example this 1974 album, Pure Smokey, which was released on Motown. The whole album will have you yearning for the days when you would hear REAL music on the radio, or as Tracy from OTV put it, "music...for tomorrow and not just for today." I AM I AM is one such great tune from this album. It's as sweet as Smokey's voice and makes you want to go sit on the porch on a beautiful day and sip some fresh squeezed lemonade! In addition to Smokey Robinson, Pure Smokey also features production from Gene Page and Willie Hutch, so if you see this one in CD form or in the record bins, scoop it up!
