It must be nearly Christmas when all the compilations start coming out. Getting in early in this collection of Stevie Wonder material - mainly sampling his late 60's/70's/early 80's peak with one 2005 track tagged on the end. A few strange track choices, and that coupled with the title Number Ones (only had 2 in the UK!) makes me wonder if they are his more popular American hits. A number of his top-10 singles are missing so no 'My Cherie Amour', 'Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday' or 'Lately' but do get 'That Girl' which made No39!! Go figure!

That aside, what we do have is a compilation of joyful, upbeat material which reminds what a great artist he has been, and songs like 'Uptight' and 'Master Blaster' just delight. If artists like Amy Winehouse can be one of years best-sellers with her retro-style songs then surely there should still be interest in the past masters of the Motown style. The previous reviewer refers to there being more comprehensive collections, but as a taster this is still a great starting place.

Compare this album with the Definitive collection - the question of which to buy is a no brainer. For £1 more you are getting nearly twice the number of tracks.

Well I think that this Stevie Wonder collection has three tiers: First we have the sublime Motown classics that made Stevie a household name, such as 'Uptight', 'Master Blaster', 'In the City', 'Sir Duke', 'I Was Made to Love Her' and of course the peerless funk of 'Superstition'. The second tier consists of the slightly saccharine but still uplifting 'You are the Sunshine of my Life', decent enough 'Higher Ground', and 'Living for the City'; whilst the third has the execrable 'I Just Called...', worthy but nauseating duet with Paul McCartney 'Ebony and Ivory', and decent but pointless cover of 'Signed Sealed Delivered'. The remainder don't even warrant a mention but I'm sticking my hand up for the pure 80s but fun and buoyant 'Part-Time Lover'.

There's not much to choose between this and the other 'Definitive Collection', however this is a little bit cheaper on Amazon.

Great Songs that most of them being American Number Ones. He only one Number one I Iust Called To Say I Love you- in the UK in 1984, along with his duet with Paul Macartney in 1982 Ebony And Ivory. Apart from the rest of the album it has true 60's and 70's and 80's soul hits : Everything's is All Right Uptight

Firstly, I agree with other reviewers. What was the basis for the selection of tracks? Why no "My Cherie Amour? Is there something that we don't know about the ex-PM's wife?

However, the main problem with this compilation is that it charts Stevie's downfall from leader to follower. OK, some of it is subjective, but I'm sure I'm not the only person to find "You are the sunshine of my life" beautiful, but "I just called to say I love you" corny. Come on, a drum machine and a cha-cha-cha ending is for a Holiday Inn bar performer. Equally, Part-time Lover seems to based on You Can't Hurry Love's backing track. Marvin Gaye might have had the crooning talents to do Overjoyed, but Stevie should avoid crooning. Compare Skeletons and So What the Fuss to Superstition: They all have great grooves, but Skeletons and What the Fuss go nowhere.

As with most recording artists this should be one of your recordings. If you like Stevie Wonder this has all the hits. Delivered quickly and well packaged.
