Stevie Wonder - Summer Soft

I finally got the Songs in the Key of Life album and totally adore this song. It´s one of the most beautiful ever.

I´ve heard these, but Summer Soft is my absolute favourite from the album.

Damn I love this track. The keys at the end... the organ.... His voice.

What really, REALLY trips me out about this whole era is that Stevie did this in his damn twenties. Sure, lots of great artists peak in their twenties, but damn..... Maybe Your Baby, Superstition, Superwoman... all songs written when he was 21, 22 years old. And this great track when he was only 25, 26.

Agreed. There's a disturbing lack of web presence for Stevie Wonder

i love the whole record, but I hope they give it a proper treatment by remastering it. The sound is a bit cloudy to me.

I know, I'm stunned there isn't a Stevie community as developed as the ones for Prince or MJ.

Start one!

I don't think Stevie's fans are like Prince, MJ, The Beatles, etc. Stevie is one of those that will be more appreciated after he's gone.

You must remember, Stevie has a huge fan base, but he never achieved the same success that someone like P, MJ, etc. has achieved.

Well, I think Prince has bigger crossover appeal, but I think Stevie has achieved more success. Not that I measure success solely in terms of album sales or grammys, but Stevie has bested Prince in both I believe, and is probably one of Prince's few rivals in terms of musicianship. Stevie no doubt would be as tech savvy as Prince as well if he wasn't blind. Hell, I've seen Stevie work studio equipment too.

Seems like Stevie fans disperse themselves onto MJ and Prince boards, and Youtube.

No doubt about that. Of course, Stevie has more years to his credit. Stevie has been doing this for about 50 years. Imagine all of the BIG hits he has? The thing is, Stevie's audience seems to be certain types of people. Stevie's audience seems to be more AC/POP/R&B whereas Prince and the others seem to have an audience that is POP/ROCK/ALTERNATIVE/R&B.

My mom had over a hundred lps in our living room. This one always stood out for me, and sometimes I would play it when nobody was around. I was 8 years old. One thing I remember about it was I could play every side and it all sounded good.
