Wikipedia : This day (February 19, 1940 ), in Detroit, Michigan , is born Smokey Robinson, an American R&B singer, songwriter and record producer.

Official Site : Once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet,” acclaimed singer-songwriter Smokey Robinson’s career spans over 4 decades of hits. He has received numerous awards including the Grammy Living Legend Award….

@allmusic : As the leader of the Miracles, Robinson was one of the very first artists signed to the fledgling label in 1959, and while he racked up many hits for it with the Miracles and as a solo act, Robinson was also an invaluable behind-the-scenes talent who wrote songs, produced records, scouted and groomed talent…

@last.fm : In 1975, Robinson’s solo career went into full-drive after the success of the #1 R&B hit “Baby That’s Backatcha.” Robinson’s 1976 single “Quiet Storm” and its accompanying album typified a smooth, slow style of R&B that is today called “quiet storm.”
