Stevie Wonder: Innervisions

Stevie Wonder was at the height of his creative powers when he created Innervisions (1973).

Innervisions was written, produced, and arranged by Stevie, and he played all the instruments on 7 of the 9 songs.

For me, the two songs that really grabbed my attention (then and now) were Living For The City and Higher Ground.

These songs were funky, hard hitting, and lyrically mesmerizing pieces of Stevie Wonder’s genius.

The rest of the album is great, too…lots of diversity in style and lyrical content throughout, but those two songs are always the ones I go back and explore.
