$3.99 MP3 Album Deal: Stevie Wonder ‘Innervisions’

Innervisions, the landmark album by the mighty Stevie Wonder, is now available in MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $3.99. (The CD is currently $9.99 and comes with an MP3 version of the album as well.)

Released 40 years ago this year, and the 16th studio album by Wonder, who had already conquered the 1960s with his Motown R&B mix of pop and early strains of funk, which reached untold masses, amps up that sound here and throws in socially conscious issues and crisper production on Innervisions and it remains one of Motown’s and R&B’s finest records.

From the hot groove opening of “Too High,” which speaks of drug abuse metaphoric and literal, to the down-on-one’s-luck day to day drudges of “Living in the City,” to one of his biggest chart hits and all-time successes in “Higher Ground,” and the breakthrough creative highlights of “Golden Lady” and “Don’t You Worry “˜Bout A Thing,” Innervisions comes out of the starting gate like a Formula 1 race car blazing down the asphalt and never let’s up. Wonder also plays most of the instruments on the album as well, and not in a novelty sense whatsoever. He plays with a confidence and self-assurance that is absolutely mindblowing, much like the record itself. Come explore the inner vision Stevie Wonder intended here and then some, indeed.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: Stevie Wonder ‘Fulfillingness’ First Finale’

Fulfillingness’ First Finale, by Stevie Wonder, and is part of his whirlwind success of the string of his classic albums released in the 1970s, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.

Released in the Summer of 1974 after his funky Innervisions, (which won a Grammy for Record of the Year) and before his sprawling, amazing double record set Songs in the Key of Life, (which won a Grammy for Record of the Year too) Fulfillingness’ First Finale acts as a nice checkpoint/rest stop between those two aforementioned albums. Fulfillingness ALSO won a Grammy for Record of the Year, setting a musical precedent which brought the aptly named Wonder to even newer, more successful heights. With warm R&B musical interludes like “Too Shy to Say,” “Heaven is 10 Zillion Light Years Away,” and the radio and chart hits like “Boogie on Reggae Woman”; the wonderfully cynical stomp of “You Haven’t Done Nothin’,” and sporting guests as diverse as Paul Anka, The Jackson Five, Minnie Riperton, Sergio Mendes, The Persuasions, and Michael Sembello, this record is a nice, albeit rather underrated album, atypical of the 1970s Stevie Wonder style, and remains in a canon full of explosively R&B/funk/pop slices of sonic greatness that comes from the mind and soul of this musical master.

Browse all 100 albums on sale this month for only $5 each, as well as the amazing new deal running through the month of January: 2,000 MP3 Albums For $5 Each.
