(I posted the following two years ago, my favorite Stevie Wonder show. Happy Holidays. See you in 2011.)

There are very few artists who had album runs like the one Stevie Wonder pulled off in the ’70s (the Rolling Stones come immediately to mind). The following set, from January of 1974, finds the artist in the midst of a creative high while touring the UK. Recorded after Innervisons and prior to Fulfillingness’ First Finale the man is on fire here — an incomparable force unto his own.
