As I go back over my top 50 list, the one artist who I can't believe I left off is Stevie Wonder. I fixed that this morning by adding my favorite Stevie Wonder record, Talking Book, to the top 50, making it 52 records in total. I suspect I may do that a few more times.
In the mid 70s, Stevie Wonder put out four records in a row that are all must haves in my book, Talking Book, Innervisions, Fulfillingness, and Songs In The Key of Life.
The middle two of these four, Innervisions and Fulfillingness, are less well known, but are just as good, possibly better.
After Talking Book, the Stevie Wonder record I pull out most often is Innervisions. I love Too High, Living For The City, the funky Higher Ground, Don't You Worry 'Bout A Thing, and the final song, the scathing indictment of Richard Nixon - He's Misstra Know It All. That's over half of the record. That's how good this record is.
