Numbered, Limited Edition!
Released in 1972, "Talking Book" is Stevie's fifteenth album and the second of five consecutive albums referred to as his "classic period." It is considered by many to be his greatest and most influentual album. A perfect blend of funk, rock, soft-rock, soul, gospel and smooth jazz. The popular appeal of the record destroyed the myth that R&B artists were incapable of creating music that could be appreciated by rock audiences.
"Talking Book" finds Stevie Wonder in complete control by writing, producing and performing most of the memorable emotion-packed, magical music himself. Wonder won three awards for "Talking Book" at the 1974 Grammys: Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," and both Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song for "Superstition".
From this point forward, few people saw him as the kid that made "Fingertips" anymore but one of the brightest and most creative music stars of the 70's.
"Altogether, an exceptional, exciting album, the work of a now quite matured genius." - Vince Aletti, Rolling Stone
"Wonder originally wrote and recorded 'Sunshine' while he was finishing his 1972 LP Music of My Mind, but he decided to hang on to it until his next album, Talking Book. He had written the song for future wife Syreeta Wright, who had met Wonder at the Motown offices, where she was a secretary. The cut was Talking Book's second Number One hit, following 'Superstition.'" - Rolling Stone
