I Like It Like That is a 1964 album by Motown group The Miracles, issued on its Tamla label subsidiary in the United States (Tamla T249, deleted) and on the Tamla-Motown label (TML11003) elsewhere in the world. Known as the Miracles' "forgotten album", few people, outside of Motown insiders, hard-core Miracles fans, and collectors, remember that it had even existed. This album featured a combination of several new-for-1964 songs along with previously-issued material from the group's album from the year before, The Miracles Doin' Mickey's Monkey. New for 1964 songs included "I Like It Like That" (the Top 30 title song), the Bobby Rogers-led flip side "You're So Fine and Sweet,"(this is the only original Miracles studio album that has that song), "That's What Love Is Made Of" (another 1964 hit) that the group performed on the American International Pictures release, the T.A.M.I. Show that year, and "Would I Love You", a song that became a popular regional hit tune for the group in Pennsylvania and The Midwest. The album also featured a Claudette Robinson-led cover version of The Orlons' #2 Pop smash, "The Wah Watusi". (Claudette is also featured with the rest of the group on the album's cover), and the group's 1963 Top 40 Hit, "I Gotta Dance to Keep From Crying". Interestingly, several of the group's other 1964 songs, including the chart hits "(You Can't Let The Boy Overpower) The Man In You", "Come On Do The Jerk", and its "B" side, "Baby Don't You Go", were not included in this album.

In an unusual move by Motown, this album was quickly withdrawn from sale in the U.S. shortly after its release, and was superseded and replaced by the Miracles' album Greatest Hits from the Beginning, on which several of its songs appear. It has also been deleted from most domestic catalogs, but used copies are still available from certain foreign websites.
