Double Good Everything

Genre: R&B; Lead Performer: Smokey Robinson

Smokey Robinson has always been something of an oddity in the wide pantheon of soul artists-he’s one of the few who write their own songs. From the Miracles to this first non-Motown solo recording, Smokey’s subject, as he sails smoothly through the years untroubled by trends, has been that timeless theme of soul balladry: the honeyed rush of first love. Double Good Everything is more of the pleasant same — no watershed, just sweet, warm Smokey doing his bit for romantic drive-time inspiration, more courtly than salacious, and slightly teenage in his depictions of love.
