Japanese only SHM SACD pressing. Universal. 2011.
Songs in the Key of Life (1976) was the highest high point of Stevie Wonder's career. More sprawling than Innervisions and Talking Book, this two-LP-plus-EP was also less of a consistent stunner than either of those masterworks. That Songs retains an enormous amount of visionary relevance, though, is demonstrated not only in Coolio's borrowing of "Pastime Paradise" as a template for "Gangsta's Paradise," but in the cold-as-ice synthesized string quartet of "Village Ghetto Land." This is Stevie, so naturally that cut's anger is balanced by the ultra-buoyant "I Wish," "Sir Duke," and "Another Star." The 2000 reissue boasts radically improved remastered sound. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.
very good crisp remaster. I didn't expect that, but am so enjoying listening to songs I don't even recognize. I had the album some years ago and didn't listen to it often. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Amazon Customer
Stevie Wonder did not miss a single beat with this classic album. It is as vital as the day it was released back in 1970's.
Great sound quality on the Blurau audio.
Sir Duke, Isn't She Lovely, As and Joy Inside My Tears make this a wonderful, fulfilling Stevie album, probably his last great work.Published 11 months ago by Brian Hiltz
