The Miracles – Shop Around

Here is a pioneering Tamla Motown record from 1960: ‘Shop Around‘ by The Miracles. It is notable as being the label’s first #1 hit on the Billboard magazine R&B singles chart, and also hit #2 on the Hot 100 (#1 pop, Cashbox). This history-making song is also noted for being the first million-selling record of The Miracles’ and The Motown Record Corporation, as well as a 2006 Grammy Hall of Fame inductee.
