What a voice, intense and pouring with emotions.
I found an article describing how people experienced him during recording. I think that's what I hear in his voice and it always gets to me each time I hear his voice.
>According to Willie Clarke, "J. P. seemed to go berserk at the microphone. He was so caught up in the feel of his songs, at times we thought we would have to hit him with a bat to calm him down. He was electric!" When he was going to do a recording session, people would try to get in on it to watch him work. His sessions were like watching a show.
Willie got the idea to write "Hot Love", in which you can easily hear Robinson's energy in the lyrics. Robinson was an instant sensation with the release of the hit 45 single, "I Got My Thing On A String."<
