Deep in My Soul is Smokey Robinson's fifth solo album. It was released in 1977.
Reviewing in Christgau's Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981), Robert Christgau wrote:
"Smokey has a right to the romanticism that has saturated his solo career—ick with kick has always been his specialty—but I get more from the Big Time soundtrack than from Smokey's Family Robinson. And then there's this, in which various Motown hacks attempt to approximate the bright, direct style of a less mature Smokey and come up with four songs (two of which begin each four-cut side) that actually do so. Whereupon Smokey, pro that he is, sings them as if he wrote them himself."
