ME TOMORROW in 1982 and team up with RICK JAMES for the hit song EBONY EYES .After conquering his addiction to cocaine he was back in 1987 with the album ONE HEART which contained the song JUST TO SEE HER a killer song and ONE HEART BEAT. He would record his last album LOVE SMOKEY in 1990 shortly after MOTOWN was sold to MCA and the he departed .During the 80,s funk pop group ABC released a tribute to him called WHEN SMOKEY SINGS, of which was a huge hit for them. He has since kept busy releasing a gospel album FOOD FOR THE SPIRIT 2004 and a jazz album TIMELESS LOVE in 2006.Also appearing as guest vocalist on TEENA MARIE album SAPHIRE. It’s so clear the influence his music has had on today’s sound and feel. His vibe in the 1970,s gave way to what people would later call the quiet storm. Yet his songs will always remain timeless let’s not forget the hits with the miracles BAD GIRL ,YOU’VE REALLY GOT A HOLD ON ME ,MICKEYS MONKEY,TRACKS OF MY TEARS ,I SECOND THAT EMMOTION,TEARS OF A CLOWN, are just a few that will always remind us of him yet equally what came after that always gives me pause at just how great the man is. So imagine when I thought it would be a while before we heard from him again the man is back with a new album of new original songs accept one a cover of the Norah Jones hit IDONT KNOW WHY. The album is entitled TIME FLIES WHEN YOU’RE HAVING FUN and will feature INDIA ARIE, JOSS STONE and CARLOS SANTANNA, I sure cannot wait to get my hands on a copy.
