Performing remains the favorite gig of the singer, songwriter and producer. "Doing concerts, that's when I get to meet the people and make new fans. For two-and-a-half to three hours, I'm having a ball," says Robinson, 70. The King of Motown just released Now and Then, a new CD sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel. The album features six live recordings of his classic songs, including "I Second That Emotion," "The Tears of a Clown" and "The Tracks of My Tears," plus six tunes from his previous CD, Time Flies When You're Having Fun.
