It was 50 years ago since Stevie Wonder released his sixteenth album Innervisions. It was one of the first albums I bought on request of an older friend. At this time I used to listen to late 60s music and glam and with this album I first got in touch with soul music. Since then I came back to this kind of music from time to time. Innervisions appeared in a period Stevie Wonder had his best outputs. Listening to this record again it shows how great and creative Stevie was at this time. Most of the instruments were played by himself and he made synths compatible for our ears long before they were used in the early 80s. He also had a spread in his sound from ballads over funky sounds to storytelling songs. Still a masterpiece after a half century.

The first Stevie album I bought. You couldn't have gone wrong with any picks from Innervisions but very good choices all the same. Thanks, Walter!
