  • Stevie Wonder - Songs In The Key Of Life (original Canadian Motown pressing)

    This album is a stroke of genius and IME one of the finest double-albums, which means no filler, put out by any artist. For a standard domestic pressing this double album of gorgeous rhythms, melodies, production and mastering is one that need take no back seat. It is a joy to absorb! It has wonderful soundstage width and depth, although I'd prefer a little more identification of instrument placement. Maybe the Speakers Corner reissue deals with that better...I don't know. Bass is solid and tight (quick) and there seems to be no stress in the upper range. I really like the mastering on this.

    The cover of my copy shows some wear, but the vinyl plays to almost NM- status.

    That's the way music was back then. Maybe two throw aways. Now one is lucky if there are two keepers.
