Time Out for Smokey Robinson & the Miracles is a 1969 album by Motown group Smokey Robinson & the Miracles. The album reached #25 on the Billboard Pop Album chart. It contains four pop Top 40 singles: "Doggone Right", "Abraham, Martin & John", "Here I Go Again", and the Top 10 pop smash hit "Baby, Baby Don't Cry". Time Out also features covers of Motown songs such as "For Once in My Life" and the Robinson-penned songs "My Girl" and "The Composer". Miracles members Marv Tarplin, Pete Moore, and Ronnie White were also co-writers on several of this album's tracks, along with Motown staff songwriters Al Cleveland Ron Miller, & Terry Johnson. Miracle Pete Moore also co-produced 2 of the album's tracks, a prelude to his later production of The Miracles' massively successful Platinum-selling City of Angels album of a few years later.
