Cool

Innervisions and Songs in the key of life are filled humanity. Real people playing real instruments (mostly him). Today's artists need to make a big sound and when you hear their music they all have a wall of sound coming at you. Things are added to make the inferior songwriting sound good. Especially pop music. He was once pop music. Much better.

I absolutely agree. If you really like Stevie, don't limit yourself to just a few albums. I personally can't think of one song that I've heard that I thought was unlistenable and I've been listening to his music since the 70's (on 8 track even) He has such a feelgood sound that even the cheesy songs are enjoyable.

Strangely enough he hasn't learned Higher Ground. As great a bassist he is, he's only just starting to delve into the slap/pop technique - he has always played fingerstyle. I mean Higher Ground doesn't need to be slapped, but it is the standard beginner's slap/pop song, so I guess that's why he hasn't learned it yet.

I know Stevie played most of the intstruments but did he play that bass part? If so, kudos!

I really like most of Stevie Wonder's work, he has to be one of the most talented artists of his era, having said that one album he did that I can't recommend is "The Secret Life Of Plants"...I tried half a dozen times to try and find something I liked about it,,,but never did. I should add that it was a double album soundtrack so maybe my expectations were too high to begin with.

Talking Book
Songs In The Key Of Life
Innervisions

My 3 favorites in order.

Stevie Wonder is sooo brilliant, that he created an album completely dedicated to the perspective of flowers, if they were able to think.

The Album is called: Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants.

Thanks for the proper album name, I was too lazy to look it up and it's been over 20 years since it bought the album, it may have been a brilliant concept, but it did not make a lasting impression on me anyway,,,I like the 3 albums I already listed and consider Journey... to be his least accessible work, if you are a die hard collector then maybe a case could be made to include this one in your collection.
