Release Info: The Miracles “City of Angels”

leave a comment »

More info has come through on last week’s mention of the reissue of City of Angels, a “lost” 1975 album by The Miracles.

City of Angels, the fourth Miracles LP with vocalist Billy Griffin (who’d replaced Smokey Robinson in 1972), was a smash thanks to its huge No. 1 hit “Love Machine (Part 1).” But amazingly, it’s never gotten a proper CD release until now. Hip-O Select, Universal Music Enterprises’ boutique label, has reissued the disc with its original album art, a new essay written by soul music writer David Nathan, a bonus interview Nathan conducted with Griffin and fellow Miracle Warren “Pete” Moore, and an unreleased bonus track: a 12″ instrumental version of “Love Machine.”

Order it here, and as always stick with The Second Disc for more expanded and remastered news as it happens.
