A highlight of our Soul Source - Artist Of The Week feature

Every week we will be setting up a place where members are invited to talk, post and share info, stories, memories, highlights and more all regarding the artist who made this fine music.

Stevie Wonder Biography (Wikipedia)

Stevland Hardaway Morris (né Judkins; born May 13, 1950), better known by his stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist.

A child prodigy, Wonder is considered to be one of the most critically and commercially successful musical performers of the late 20th century. He signed with Motown's Tamla label at the age of 11, and continued performing and recording for Motown into the 2010s. He has been blind since shortly after his birth. Among Wonder's works are singles such as "Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours", "Superstition", "Sir Duke", "You Are the Sunshine of My Life", and "I Just Called to Say I Love You"; and albums such as Talking Book (1972), Innervisions (1973), and Songs in the Key of Life (1976). He has recorded more than 30 U.S. top-ten hits and received 25 Grammy Awards, one of the most-awarded male solo artists, and has sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the top 60 best-selling music artists....

Those nasty record company guys have taken the video of Stevie singing this down ...

.... so we have to make do with this 'foreign' version (it beats the Lime IMO)...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKOiFh1QmqI

When you think of music from the Motor City, Oslo probably isn't the first place that springs to mind. But fans of Norwegian singer Wenche Myhre must have been dancing in the streets when they first heard this little corker. Issued in 1967, the song proved a hit for the singer in her homeland. By that time, she had also become one of a host of Scandinavian dolls to be taken to the German bosom, scoring a string of hits from 1965 onwards.

After relocating to Germany, she entered the 1965 Deutsche Schlager-Festpiele song contest in Baden-Baden as she would get to appear before millions of German tv viewers. Although she finished in 2nd place behind Peggy March, her performance was enough to launch her career.

Monkey Talk - great bluesy track IMO and a brilliant showcase for his harmonica playing.

I remember buying this with money from my paper round.

Purchased from our local record store with listening booths on the wall. How things have changed since then.

The one thing that hasn't changed is that I like this record just as much today as I did then.

Plus that very record is still in my collection.

A notification from just after the war providing a chance to rejuvenate this thread. David Porter keeping it on the dark side.

Just how good is "Uptight". I've always rated it but as I get older I just think it gets better and better. Brilliant music and so simply put together. Love it.

When thinking of Stevie, the first thing that comes to my mind is he will be seen as the equivalent of Bach/Beethoven etc in hundreds of years time.  His catalogue is unbelievable and he also puts on one of the best live shows in the business.  Current faves are 'Something Out Of The Blue', 'Black Man' 'As', 'Knocks Me Off My Feet'.

Stevie's albums from Where I'm coming from to Songs in the key of life are arguably the most original, innovative, influential, memorable, wide ranging and brilliant recordings that were released in the last half century by a single artist.

They are that good.

I so agree with you. I went to see him at the G Mex in Manchester 30odd years ago and he played every musical instrument on the stage. Absolutely fantastically talented.

Wishing him a speedy recovery

Indeed this stands out from the rest.

I hope his operation goes well.

I really hope I get to see him perform in the not too distant future.
