Miracles Man

Sad news about the passing of Bobby Rogers, tenor and best dancer, in the Miracles, at the age of 73.  He also co-wrote a few famed songs with Smokey Robinson, including this one, "First I Look at the Purse, "for another group--goofy but, in its own way, great.  Here covered later by J. Geils.  Note: One of the great rock 'n roll factoids:   Rogers and Smokey born on the same day--in the same hospital.
