(YouTube) Video Stevie Wonder's "Innervisions" was released 40 years ago and it's still ten times better than anything you like. Here's half an hour of by-the-Lawd 1973 awesome, which is 29.8 more minutes than your puny ears can comprehend   ( divider line

Golden Lady and Higher Ground...

One of Stevie Wonder's best albums.

Listening/watching this almost makes me angry for what is considered "good" popular music these days.

Insane how great an album that was.

I bought this album so hot off the presses the vinyl was still warm.  It was every bit as great as I had hoped it would be and it still amazes me when listening to it now.

fark yea. nice post. I'm a lifelong fan (all my computers are named 'STEVIE') and have never seen this.

I saw Stevie live at the Montreal Forum in that year.  Cat Stevens was at the show and did a number with Stevie.

Four decades ago.....

One of my favorites

Excellent video, subby. Thank you for posting. That was a damned hot set.

I skipped around a bit in the first couple of songs and it just sounded like four different guys playing four different tunes all at once.

Fine Young Thing from the Innervisions sessions. Unreleased, far as I know.
2013-08-03 08:33:07 PM  
I have nothing to say but that, yes, Innervisions is incredible.
2013-08-03 10:32:37 PM  
Thanks Subby!!!

I was pulling in to work with Innervisions blaring and Vergie from the office started giving me shiat saying "What you listening to that for? It's praise music!"
2013-08-03 11:02:05 PM  
It's ok except for the cracka playing guitar. The drummer was cool tho
2013-08-03 11:03:56 PM  
Great album, but I always preferred Songs in the key of life
2013-08-04 01:21:27 AM  
Innervisions and Talking Book are my two favoritist albums by Stevie. They definitely came from somewhere other than this world.

   In 1977 I was on my way from Phoenix to Frankfort, KY. I had been listening constantly to Songs in the Key of Life in Phoenix for several weeks, couldn't get enough of it. I stopped in NOLA and had booked a room in the hotel next to the Superdome for a night to party in the Quarter. I got there, parked my van to check in and was walking toward the lobby entrance when I saw a black guy get out of a limo with a pretty black lady guiding him by the arm. It was Stevie!!!!  I walked up, she smiled at me, I reached out my hand, she told him to shake my hand (he did and smiled at me) and I told him I loved him. true

I'm not much of a celebrity worshipper, but if there was one man to meet before I die, it'd be Stevie. Insanely talented, and seemingly as genuine as it gets.

This is really cool, but the Sesame Street version of "Superstitious" is better.  That song needs a horn section.

LewDux: Way too obscure

Also 1977!  fasineating

I give huge kudos to Stevie for being blind and mastering multiple instruments, and writing a handful of catchy songs, but most of his stuff just isn't for me.
"Corny saccharine pretention" comes to mind.

Third_Uncle_Eno: "Corny saccharine pretention" comes to mind.

That came later in his career. I don't think he's released anything with staying power since "Overjoyed" and that was almost 30 years ago.
