Stevie Wonder - Signed, Sealed And Delivered [LP] ((Vinyl))
As you listen to this album, you will inevitably find yourself lamenting the devastating shortage of hours in a day in which to continue grooving. 1970's SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED marks another turning point for Mr. Wonder as his lyrics grow more world-conscious and the music gets indubitably funkier. Swift, dynamic bass-playing, deep clavichord and head-nodding riffs are just some of the elements which drive the new sound. Those who cherish his more sugary Motown nuggets of the '60s needn't fear, though--they too continue to claim a space.
The title track may well place you unwittingly en marche to the door of your sweetie. The high-stepping horn lines and husky rhythm section lay the foundation for a swinging vocal delivery laced with sitar. Stevie later holds church of the grooviest order on "Heaven Help Us All," raising his good will towards humanity to a thunderous crown of horns and choir. The thrilling "Sugar" and a lively rendition of "We Can Work It Out" display his highly effective technique of vocal layering through overdubs. This album is full of fine R&B with many tasty surprises.
