Thirty or so of Stevie Wonder's biggest hits--many of them enduring classics--make up Song Review. That's the good news. The bad news is that they're sequenced here about as well (or maybe not) as your CD player's "random" function might do it. Leading off with "Part-Time Lover"--a major chart record, no doubt, but hardly the rouser you'd expect for an opener--is puzzling enough. It's when the programming starts veering from highlights of his self-produced period ("Sir Duke") to Motown assembly-line pieces ("My Cherie Amour") that the head-scratching really begins. And don't try to count the great moments that are missing. This will do in a pinch, but if you own no Stevie, be advised that better overviews of Wonder's career (the finest by far being the four-CD box At the Close of a Century) are available.--Rickey Wright

However, do be wary if you decide to buy this. Many songs by Stevie Wonder may be acknowledged: "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm yours"; "You're the sunshine of my life", "He's misstra know-it-all", but as far as i'm concerned, this collection is devoid of something. This includes: virtually no trace of his work on "Fulfillingless' First Finale, all of which are sadly absent; a lot of songs including the likes of: "I ain't gonna stand for it", "He hasn't done nothin'", "Superwoman", "All in life is fair" and "Love's in need in love today" are not here, but should be; probably the worst trasverty of them all are "Isn't she lovely" and "Living in the city" being the cut versions, obmitting the role-play scene and the entire second part in the latter and the baby noises in the former.
Overall, this could all be done to the fact, Wonder has done so much verstalise material in his long career, let alone, a running streak of classic albums from 1972 to 1976, may prompt only a rough and general selection to be included. If you are new to Wonder, i would suggest avoiding this and buying one of his classic works, like: Innversions, Talking Book, Fulfillingless' First Finale or best of all, Songs in the key of life. If you must insist on a greatest hits package, then probably would be a better bet than Stevie Wonder: The Ultimate Collection.
one of the worlds true 'Super-Stars who's chart-success was indeed both sides of the 'Atlantic'
Many of his hits surely among most every music-fans favourite's list, this album contains many of his best remembered
U.K Chart Successes, strangely he only had the two number ones here in the U.K the first of which was his duet with
'Paul McCartney' back in 1982 'Ebony and Ivory' the second, everybody's favourite at the time 'I Just Called To Say I
Love You' back in 1984.
Among his other U.K Chart Hits to be found on-board - 'I Was Made To Love Her' (Chart '5' 1967) 'For Once In My Life'
(Chart '3' 1968) 'My Cherie Amour' (Chart '4' 1969) 'Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday' (Chart '2' 1969) 'You Are The
Sunshine Of My Life' (Chart '7' 1973) 'Sir Duke' (Chart '2' 1977) 'Master Blaster' (Jammin') (Chart '1980) 'Lately' (Chart
'3' 1981) and the same year 'Happy Birthday' (Chart '2') 'Part Time Lover' (Chart '3' 1985) and 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered,
I'm Yours' (Chart '11' 2003) along of course with the two number '1's' are among the tracks to be found upon this 21-Song
cellabration of 'Stevie Wonders' music, many true classic's included among the play-list.
Blind more or less from birth, 'Stevie Wonder' had great vision in his song-writing..........He still performs today.
The one aspect of this collection I would question is the arrangement of the 31 songs, as there is hardly any consistency to it, and this gives birth to some odd transitions. No matter what order the songs are played, though, you will not find anything less than a five-star song in this bunch (even though Hey Love is one of the few Stevie songs I really don't care for). You get early Stevie frenetic classics such as I Was Made to Love Her, Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours, and Uptight; funkadelic standouts such as Superstition, Master Blaster (Jammin'), Living For the City, That Girl, and Boogie on Reggae Woman; and unforgettable ballads such as I Just Called to Say I Love You, My Cherie Amour, Ribbon in the Sky, You Are the Sunshine of My Life, and Send One Your Love.Read more ›
