You Really Got A Hold On Me


Born in 1940, Smokey Robinson persuaded a nation to listen to new music when just about half of everybody wanted to close their ears to popular music. Recorded to the Motown label, Smokey would be amongst the best known musicians on the label for decades. In 1987, he was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Bob Dylan called Robinson, "one of America's great poets." And that is just one example of why listening to Smokey Robinson cannot be a bad thing.
