Quite Storm

By

Smokey Robinson

About the artist:

The genius of William “Smokey” Robinson is immeasurable. As many of his prior songs had shaped R&B and pop music, this album would have a similar effect. The title track became the namesake for a music format. The album itself had three singles hit the charts. Arranged in an intermittent rhythm, “Baby That’s Backatcha” ran up the Billboard R&B charts to number one inside 16 weeks. It was Robinson’s first number one single since leaving the Miracles. The lyric of the ballad “The Agony and the Ecstasy” hit the Top Ten at number seven, and it was followed by the masterpiece “A Quiet Storm.” Although it only managed to seal the Top 25, it has since made a greater impact on the music charts and music industry. Briefly, radio mogul Cathy Hughes, owner of Radio One, was the general manager at Howard University radio WHUR during the early ’70s when she created the format “the quiet storm.” She used Smokey Robinson’s composition as the theme song. Before long, it caught on around the country and evolved into a new market. This album also features the “Wedding Song” which was written for Hazel and Jermaine Jackson’s wedding and the “Happy” theme from the movie Lady Sings the Blues.Craig Lytle, Rovi
