Eivets Rednow – Alfie

LP (Item 27109) Motown, 1968 — Condition: Very Good+
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album

✈
❔

A late 60s all-instrumental set from Stevie Wonder – and a record that shows a real change from his style in the earlier part of the decade – a much more mature move forward, and one that hints at the power of his arrangements in the 70s! As you might guess from the "Alfie" in the title, Wonder takes on a bit of Burt Bacharach – but also then moves in to other territory too – numbers that feature his harmonica over hip larger arrangements, almost with the feel of a Toots Thielemans album at points – and a bit of a soundtrack vibe at others, particularly some of the more keyboard-oriented cuts. Titles include "Alfie", "A House Is Not A Home", "Grazing In The Grass", "Never My Love/Ask The Lonely", "Ruby", "Which Way The Wind", "Bye Bye World", and "How Can You Believe".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Purple label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole, aging and a small crack at the bottom of the spine.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Very high concept work from Stevie Wonder! The record is, in fact, about the "secret life of plants" – partially used as a soundtrack for a film of the same name, but also acting as kind of a storybook in itself!

An amazing early record from Stevie Wonder – the kind of set that shows what raw power and starmanship he had even at a wee wee age!
