Dana Hatch swears by the 1st 3. I don't remember all of them, but I think one's Up-Tight & another's Down To Earth.

Ex-Cy Young award winning pitcher Barry Zito, known for his wild tastes in music, was once asked what he was listening to at the time & replied, "Stevie Wonder. Box set. Constantly."

Someone tell the jazz chord joke.

Get "Songs In the Key of Life". It's a masterpiece, and can be found for $5.00.

I think his best records are in the 70s.

Music of My Mind '72
Talking Book 72
Innervisions '73
Fulfillingness' First Finale '74
Songs in the Key of Life '76

I second or third Songs in the of Life. LOT of good stuff on there, 2 LPs and an EP if I remember right.

It's telling you asked for late 60's recommendations and got early to mid 70's. It wasn't until Stevie Wonder turned 21 in 1971 and was able to renegotiate his contract (and gain creative control) that he started producing albums that showcased his talent. Everything leading up to that followed standard Motown format, so while there are great singles, the concurrent albums abound with filler, arbitrary cover versions, and show tunes.

^ yeah.

i sure do love innervisions. listen to it back to back with marvin gaye's "what's going on?" solid!
Posted: Apr 27, 2009 7:51 pm
nothing to add, really, just wanna say i like "innervisions" and "songs in the key of life" best.

I'll add this - seek out live shows from that period. The band he had was badass and took those songs to places the studio recordings only hint at.

i have fingertips........what other 60s singles are good?

"Uptight" is essential, and pick up the "My Cherie Amour" 45 for the flip "I Don't Know Why" (the Rolling Stones' cover version is on Metamorphosis)

4/5 of these are great

the sound is super

and it's under 4 bucks

Couldn't agree more---picked up a 2-disc live boot at Rockit Science some years ago and it was a revelation. If anyone is interested, I'll post a link tomorrow (today's all about work and baseball).

"I Don't Know Why"

fuck yes great song!!
Posted: Apr 28, 2009 11:43 am
One of my favorite Stevie Wonder songs (besides Hey Love which came out in 66) is "My Love is Your Love (Forever)" but I've only ever heard the Isleys' version. Not sure Stevie ever recorded it.

I've also been getting into Stevie Wonder recently.
These are some of my favourites:
Sesame Street performance
Superstition on Sesame Street
Living for the City
TONTO & Stevie Wonder

Stevie's 1966 LP Uptight is really good, if yall dont have that get it. Also 1968's For Once In My Life is good too. That is worth having for "I'd Be A Fool Right Now"

Check out 1970's Signed Sealed and Delivered the highlight on that is "Sugar" damn that is a jam.

1971's Where I'm Coming From is worth getting too.
