Stevie Wonder - Lost Treasures : Rarities from the 1960's-1990's
Of course, among my first posts and I have been meaning to return to the genius of Stevie Wonder. There are not enough words for me to express how much I love and admire Stevie. If any group of people deserve to have a grudge against everyone, I think it's those with severe disabilites. Although I am only partially disabled, I can only imagine the pain of having a total lack of some important ability. Sight and sound would be extra tough to live without on a daily basis. Not withstanding the treatment they get as children with cruel taunting and such but even how difficult life can be as an adult. Anyways, I am digressing - don't let DaddyRich get on his hobby horse here. So, I have a great admiration for those who can write and perform beautiful pieces of music and even more for those who do (and have done) it against great odds. This little gem of a disc contains some rare Stevie songs and unreleased classics. Excellent tracks like 'Uptight', 'Superstition' and an excellent cover of Marvin Gaye's 'Stubborn Kind Of Fellow' - damn, I should really be posting some Marvin Gaye rarities here. Listen and love the music people - that is an order. Also, remember me whenever you happen across some Stevie rarities.
Look at the picture for a track list, I am in a hurry here and have to make Richie's lunch for school. Be back soon.
