Love Crazy - Miracles (The)

Love Crazy
One of the five releases that comprise SoulMusic Records’ October 2012 "Motown-themed” month (featuring artists who recorded at some point for the globally famous label), LOVE CRAZY was the first album The Miracles recorded for Columbia Records following their 1977 departure from Motown.
Like their final Motown album "The Power Of Music,” the group’s Columbia debut LOVE CRAZY was produced in its entirety by Pete Moore, with all the songs written by him and Billy Griffin (who replaced lead singer and group co-founder Smokey Robinson in 1973) including two co-penned by Billy’s brother Donald (who had also joined the team as lead guitarist in 1973 and was featured for the first time on the cover art for LOVE CRAZY). Acclaimed arranger John Barnes along with famed bassist Willie Weeks and drummer James Gadson were among the personnel on the album.
Making its worldwide CD debut with this reissue (alongside the follow up LP, "The Miracles” also available on SoulMusic Records, SMCR-5074), this expanded edition of LOVE CRAZY (with three bonus tracks) achieved modest sales with the focus on the socially-conscious single, ‘Spy For Brotherhood’ (#37 US R&B charts) which became controversial following protests from the FBI resulting in its withdrawal from the airwaves.
Liner notes by renowned US writer Lewis Dene Motown include 2012 quotes from Pete Moore and Billy Griffin.
