THE MIRACLES - DEPEND ON ME
This record is so ethereal and so beautiful I find it hard to believe that it was actually cut in a recording studio; it's as if The Miracles and Berry Gordy were somehow able to record the sound of the sweetest dream state and get it pressed to wax! It's also mind boggling to think that Somekey Robinson's genius was fully formed so early on in their career; this was, more or less, The Miracles third single although technically there is another release from a few months earlier with the same song and another flip side (although 'Depend On Me" was actually the b-side in both cases).
