Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Includes liner notes by Allan Rinde.
  • Personnel: Stevie Wonder (vocals, harmonica, keyboards); Benny Benjamin (drums).
  • Liner Note Author: Allan Rinde.
  • A lush, energetic recording, FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE sees "Little" Stevie Wonder singing a workout's worth. Not to be confused with the more broadly creative Stevie of later years, this is the vintage singing-sensation Stevie. It's a thrill to hear. While the studio instrumentation is standard fare for the time, Wonder plays happily off the backing with saucily bent notes and hearty falsettos that make these pop tunes wail.
  • The overdubbed vocal harmonies on tunes like "You Met Your Match" make for the kind of hard-grooving hooks that would populate many other Wonder albums to come. "I'm More Than Happy" is a sweet, slow treat with a conga-pumped feel akin to many Marvin Gaye cuts of the same period. While the sultry wash of strings seems at times to push Stevie to more fervent singing, its absence elsewhere allows for more of his subtleties to emerge. A silvery solo on the harp lends a welcome touch to the plus-size arrangement of "God Bless The Child." The former Little Stevie wants to take you to a world of funky Motown lovin'--why not let him?
