hope all is well in your worlds

new one from me. featuring the genius of Stevie Wonder between 1971 through 1974. The mix covers 5 of my favourite Stevie albums, Where I'm Coming From, Music of my Mind, Talking Book, Innervisons and Fulfillingness' First Finale. I choose to start here because this is when Stevie was given total artistic freedom by Motown and as much as I love his music before this period, this for me is where he really began to shine as an artist, or rather even more so. It was a real challenge to try and break those albums down to one cd fitting mix and this has had weeks of painstaking preparation. In the end I failed, even with the help of my good friend Jehan in the editing suite I could only get it down to 81.19 minutes, but hopefully that won't spoil your enjoyment.

Thanks as always to Andy @Forever Nowhere, for the fantastic artwork

Funny you should post this, I was just talking with someone about how important TONTO was to Stevie Wonder in that '72-'74 run. Good post, I'll have to check it when I get home to some speakers.

Edit: And I'm definitely feeling that "Mii"-esque illustration for the cover.
