"This Motown Legend Stevie Wonder cd is a good, inexpensive sampler of his mid 60's work. You get the superb "A Place In The Sun" and "Uptight" as well a very interesting cover of "Respect". This is great for those who are not familiar with his work from the era and it is easy on the wallet. Plus it is worth it for ardent fans as it contains some songs that are not available elsewhere on cd."
The Best Stevie Wonder Album Of The 1960s

"It's true, not all the tracks are original songs, but enough of them are and I'd say about six are really, really good. I've known them all my life and I love them. Just great mid-'sixties Stevie that you haven't heard anywhere else before, not even on compilation albums.
I also love his renditions of 'Respect' and 'Can I Get A Witness', they both have a grooviness and originality of their own.
If you really like Stevie's mid-'60s sound, don't hesitate tracking this album down.
It's a real finger clicker and sing-a-longer. Very 1967, in the best upbeat soulful way. None of the melancholic sweetness that he did so well in the 70s here.
'Everytime I See You I Go Wild' is wild and fabulous!
'I'd Cry' is divine. There's a wonderful irony to the way he sang sad songs in a fast uptempo way.
'Everybody Needs Somebody' has a wonderful, melodic, understated soulfulness.
Actually, the only song I've grown tired of is the title track and yes, there are a few fillers/duds that you'll want to skip, but the good far outweighs the bad.
He was very proud of this compilation when it came out and he was right to be.
I think what lets this album down is its awful cover. Don't let it put you off."
