At the beginning of the 70s, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles parted company – and while to some, it might have looked like the group would flounder without the help of their famous leader, The Miracles hit the 70s wonderfully, and continued to grow tremendously as a group! Of course, part of that growth was due to the fact that Smokey had been replaced by singer Billy Griffin – who shared many of his talents, but also brought his own approach to the group. This concept record called City Of Angels, was their 4th, and probably most successful LP, with some smart production and nice arrangements from Freddie Perren and Wade Marcus. Includes "Night Life", "Love Machine", "Free Press", "Ain't Nobody Straight In LA", "Poor Charlotte", "Waldo Roderick DeHammersmith" and "Smog".
