Released on November 1, 1965, Going to a Go-Go was the first album to credit the group as Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. Smokey produced, wrote or co-wrote all of the tracks, except for "My Baby Changes Like the Weather", which was written by two other Motown writers, Hal Davis and Frank Wilson (Wilson also co produced the album with Robinson and William "Mickey" Stevenson). It was their only album to chart within the Top 10, where it stayed for 40 weeks peaking at #8.
