Cookin' with the Miracles [Bonus Track]

by: Smokey Robinson & the Miracles

Their second album shows Smokey and Motown starting to "uptownize" with energetic strings, although Cookin' is still one of the Miracles' most uptempo and R&B-oriented efforts. A solid set, with virtually all the material coming from the pens of Robinson and Berry Gordy, although half of the tracks -- comprising the best tunes, such as "That's the Way I Feel," "Ain't It Baby," and "Determination" -- are available on the Smokey/Miracles box set. [Cookin' with the Miracles was also released with the bonus track "Mighty Good Lovin'."] ~ Richie Unterberger
