Wonder Of Stevie – Essential Stevie Compositions, Covers, & Cookies – Compiled By DJ Spinna & Bobbito

LP (Item 440454) Harmless (UK), 1970s — Condition: Very Good
2LP
Stevie Wonder – whatta genius! Ever since his seminal late 60s sides for Motown, Stevie's had an influence on funk and soul that cannot be denied, and his genius is never so clear as when you're hearing it through the ears of other artists – the wealth of 70s talents who picked up on Stevie's unique grooves, and open them up even more! The influence of that Stevie-inspired era of artists is so huge, it's still being felt quite strongly today – as you'll hear in this brilliant set put together by DJ Spinna and Bobbito! The package features some of the best Stevie Wonder covers ever – nearly all from the early and mid 70s, and awash in electric keys, spacey soul, and jazzy wonderfulness! Titles include "Too High" by Norman Brown, "Bad Weather" by The Supremes, "You Got It Bad Girl" by Hugo Montenegro, "Golden Lady" by Jose Feliciano, "Spring High" by Ramsey Lewis, "I Was Made To Love Her" by Charles Earland, "Don't You Worry About A Thing" by Main Ingredient, "Superstition" by Sergio Mendes, "Buttercup" by Carl Anderson, "Love Having You Around" by First Choice, "Stick Together" by Minnie Riperton, and "Pastime Paradise" by Ray Barretto. 2LP set features 12 tracks in all – unmixed! For more, see the 12" sampler from the set!  © 1996-2022, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has some ring and edge wear, a hype sticker, and small sticker spot.)

Very Good

  • Vinyl can have some dirt, but nothing major.
  • May not shine under light, but should still be pretty clean, and not too dirty.
  • May have a number of marks (5 to 10 at most), and obvious signs of play, but never a big cluster of them, or any major mark that would be very deep. Most marks should still not click under a fingernail.
  • May not look near perfect, but should play fairly well, with slight surface noise, and the occasional click in part of a song, but never throughout a whole song or more.
  • This is clearly a copy that was played by someone a number of times, but which could also be a good "play copy" for someone new.

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.
