Number 90 on Rolling Stone's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

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..."
ROLLING STONE / Vince Aletti
