Album Review

Issued as an ecological package that is renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable, Number 1's collects Stevie Wonder's biggest hits beginning with 1963's timeless and irresistible "Fingertips, Pt. 2" and running straight through to "So What the Fuss" (which features Prince on guitar) from Wonder's 2005 comeback album, A Time 2 Love. In between are such enduring touchstones as 1965's "Uptight (Everything Is Alright)," the gritty "Living for the City" and the edgy, uplifting "Higher Ground" from 1973's Innervisions, the wise and pop-elegant "Sir Duke" from 1976's sprawling Songs in the Key of Life, and the reggae-tinged "Master Blaster (Jammin')" from 1980. It all adds up to a nearly 40-year survey of a master songwriter and musician whose unerring ear managed to produce and land songs on the charts that drew from every corner of the pop universe, from soul and R&B to funk, jazz, and reggae, all done with joy, hope, and an underlying intelligence and wisdom that are all too rare in popular culture. For a casual collection that provides all the big radio hits from the start of his career to date, this Stevie Wonder set will be all that many listeners will ever need. The wonder (pun intended), of course, is that what's here is just the tip of the iceberg, and there's so much more when one turns to Wonder's actual albums, particularly the ones from the mid- to late '70s. Throw this in the car and keep it there. It'll take you to some nice places, down memory lane and back again, with songs full of heart and soul.

Customer Reviews

Un grand artiste

J'ai vu Stevie Wonder pour la première fois de ma vie en concert et c'est ce qui m'a donné envie d'acheter cet album. Il est d'une telle générosité, d,une telle humanité couplé à un talent fou et une voix toujours aussi mélodieuse et sensuelle. Ne rater pas l'occasion d'aller le voir en concert, c'est un moment vraiment magique. J'en ai encore des frissions rien que d'y penser !

So many hits

Originally downloaded for my kids to hear Stevie's music. I forgot how many great hits he had. This is a must by CD.

One word to describe him "Humanitarian" his passion to make others and see others happy is a true and rare gift that not a lot of singers can relate too. That's why his success has Been so blissful cause he cares and his goal in life was to make people happy. And he for one has made me happy every time I listen to his songs.

Stevie Wonder is a much-beloved American icon and an indisputable genius not only of R&B but popular music in general. Blind virtually since birth, Wonder's heightened awareness of sound helped him create vibrant, colorful music teeming with life and ambition. Nearly everything he recorded bore the stamp of his sunny, joyous positivity; even when he addressed serious racial, social, and spiritual issues (which he did quite often in his prime), or sang about heartbreak and romantic uncertainty,...
