Stevie Wonder, As [Single] (1976)
I was about to kick this off by saying I’m on a Stevie Wonder kick currently. But then, I’m always on a Stevie Wonder kick. One of the most important music artists in (and of) my lifetime – which is to say his music has been in my heart, mind, soul and house the whole time I’ve been alive. And it all kicked off with Songs In The Key of Life for me – the record released the same year that I was. I’ve bought every other album I could find in the years since but I’ve always had a copy of Key of Life; several on vinyl – a few I’ve given away to friends – and a couple of CD copies too. Now I have this single – which I never planned for. I found it in a stack of records that was given to me, it’s a little scratched, but it plays. I wasn’t going to keep it as part of my collection – the songs are both on the parent-album but why not have it as well? Stevie Wonder IS a Musical Genius!
