Liner Notes
THE "MIRACLES" HAVE STYLE. THEY HAVE AN INDEFINABLE WAY OF DOING A NUMBER THAT MAKES YOU KNOW IT'S RIGHT. WHETHER IT'S A SWINGING ALL-OUT PRODUCTION NUMBER OR AN INTIMATE BALLAD, THE "MIRACLES" HAVE ACQUIRED THE PROFESSIONAL POLISH TO BRING ACROSS THE MOOD AND THE MESSAGE. THE "SOUND" OF THE "MIRACLES" IS THE SOUND OF SUCCESS. THE DYNAMIC VOCAL INTER-REACTIONS OF ROBERT ROGERS, TENOR, RONALD WHITE, BARITONE, PETE MOORE, BASS, BILL "SMOKEY" ROBINSON, LEAD AND CLAUDETTE ROBINSON, QUEEN OF RHYTHM, WITH MARV TARPLIN, THE GROUP'S GUITARIST. THE HOUSE LIGHTS DIM, IN THE GOLDEN GLOW OF A SINGLE SPOTLIGHT STANDS A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF HIGHLY COORDINATED ENTERTAINERS, AND THE AUDIENCES STILLS. THE MOMENT COMES WHEN THE STYLE OF THE "MIRACLES" IS AT ITS FINEST. THEIR STYLE IS REALLY A METHOD. IT'S A METHOD OF TELLING A STORY IN PRECISE, WELL-PLANNED, WELL-EXECUTED ARRANGEMENTS THAT DISPLAY THEIR CONSIDERABLE TECHNICAL ABILITIES . . . ABILITIES MOLDED OVER MANY SUCCESSFUL ENGAGEMENTS AND RECORDINGS. PRECISION HAS GAINED FOR THE GROUP A WELL-DESERVED FAME. THE HALLMARK OF THEIR STYLE IS THE CLOSE, INSIDE-TIGHT, HARMONY OF VOICES TRAINED FROM WORKING TOGETHER IN SUCH REVUES AS THE "MOTOR TOWN SPECIAL" AND ON SUCH RECORDING HITS AS "I'VE BEEN GOOD TO YO", "YOU'VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME", AND "A LOVE SHE CAN COUNT ON". THEY PRESENT PRECISION, PERFORMANCE, AND PROMISE . . . IN SHORT, THE "MIRACLES" HAVE STYLE. BIL
