First of Stevie's Classic period
on 7 October 2010
This album is the first of Stevie's big 5 albums of the Classic Period. Undeniably experimental, and dare one say it influenced by the use of performance enhancing materials Stevie does everything in this album - instrumnetals, vocals and production in itself tribute to the quite staggering talent of the man. The album contains less of the well known tracks of his other major albums, but tracks such as "Love Having you around", "I Love every little thing about You" and "Happier than the Morning Sun" give an indication of a very unusual musical sensibility with a depth and range that few before or since could master. By no means Stevie's greatest album, its importance lies in his move into new musical territories and development as one of the greatest and most important musicians of the 20th century.
