Motown's first #1 in the R'n B charts (and #2 in Billboard Hot 100) and the first million seller single was Shop around by The Miracles in 1960. The Miracles later became Smokey Robinson & The Miracles in true Motown style. Shop around itself has been covered a zillion times ever since and scored Billboard #4 again in 1976 by The Captain & Tennille. The Miracles scored 50 hits in their career including two #1's. Smokey Robinson left in 1970 for a solo career but the band went on in different formations until 1978.
