EVERYBODY COME ON,CLAP YOUR HANDS!!!!!!

"Put your hands together for this little set recorded live in Motown's studios.Neither Motown nor Stevie Wonder had
really begun to break into their signiture sounds quiet yet but
Wonder really lets 'em have it on spirited Ray Charles covers like "Drown In My Own Tears".But the REAL highlite hear is the
FULL version of his first smash hit "Fingertips",featuring that
utterly identifiable harmonica solo-he's SO underrated on that instrument-and his young Michael Jackson-like voice.It's the only big hit he had before his voice changed.
I was lucky enough to find a cutout CD of this album in a record store when I was 16 after having digested his classic 70's albums and it sent me out looking for his other
early albums-all of whitch were luckily in print back then in
1996 on CD and many of whitch are now worth quite alot.But if you bump into this under similar circumstances GET IT!No more to say!"
Genius indeed!

"Fingertips pt. 2 is one of the greatest recording of live music anywhere. The emotion and chaos of that one track sums up pretty everything that is wonderful about live music--in particular live soul. It's the beat, the audience participation, the unpredictability. When Stevie brings the band back into the song's finale and confusion breaks out (listen for "what key? what key?" in the background)...you'll get it. Or you got no soul."
