From the Land of Band Box Records

Smokey Robinson’s compositions landed on the Hot 100, R&B, and UK charts over 200 times starting off with his debut single in 1959 “Bad Girl” by the Miracles.  After 1971, Smokey usually went solo in his recording career and continued writing of course.  All of the singles illustrated below charted either on the Hot 100 or the Top R&B or Country charts in the U.S.  There are many additional charting records by other artists which I have not yet obtained an image.
