Cookin' with the Miracles is the 2nd Tamla album by American soul vocal group,The Miracles, and their second of 1961. Berry Gordy and Smokey Robinson co-wrote most of the songs, including the two charting singles "Ain't It Baby" (#49 US, #15 R&B) and "Everybody's Gotta Pay Some Dues" (#52 US, #11 R&B). Another single, “Mighty Good Lovin’” (#51 US, #21 R&B) b/w “Broken Hearted” (#97 US), was issued in between those two. However, only “Broken Hearted” appears on the album, featuring a different vocal take to the single version. The album is composed mostly of upbeat R&B tunes with steady string riffs, like "Determination" and "Broken Hearted". A cover of the jazz standard "Embraceable You" by George & Ira Gershwin is also included. “That's The Way I Feel”, also from this album, was chosen for the soundtrack of the award-winning 1964 Ivan Dixon film Nothing But a Man.
