The song “Got A Job” was the first single by The Miracles, who were
then a five-member group that included Smokey Robinson’s bride-to-
be, Claudette. Released on New York’s End label, it got a lot of airplay 
in Detroit and little elsewhere. It was an answer record to the #1 hit 
"Get A Job” by The Silhouettes.
