At Cracker Barrel, you can get a delicious, countrified, home-style meal -their eggs are to die for- or a copy of Smokey Robinson's latest album, Smokey Robinson Now & Then. The singer released the album via a program offered by the chain, which boasts 600 franchises throughout the country.
According to Reuters, Smokey Robinson Now & Then mixes live performances of six classic The Miracles' hits such as "Going to a Go-Go," "The Tears of a Clown" and "The Tracks of My Tears," along with six studio-recorded tunes from Robinson's recent CD, Time Flies When You Are Having Fun."
Robinson, 70, told Reuters the new songs, including "Time Flies" and "No Place Like That Place," were recorded about two years ago when he rented a studio for himself, brought in some old friends and recorded the music that he had been writing for years but never formally put down on music tracks. I love loose creativity like that.
