AUDIO: Stevie Wonder 11/28/88 Atlanta, GA

Today I want to share with you a truly amazing live recording of Stevie Wonder from his 1988 tour. This is Stevie at the height of his powers and influence. What we have here is nearly 3 hours long and is still likely incomplete. Quality is an A+ soundboard feed with a great mix, albeit with some quality dips in the second half of the show probably due to the limitations of the cassette tapes it was likely stored on.

Stevie plays with passion, joy and playfulness. Besides having a massive trove of hits and classic songs up his sleeve, Stevie goes off on heart wrenching solo tangents and even plays a still unreleased gem (Not The Human Race). He plays a tune he wrote for Dionne Warwick (With A Touch), he covers I Want You Back by The Jackson Five in high pitched “Little Stevie Wonder” voice, and even squeezes in 5 songs from the 1987 Characters album he was touring behind. This is a recording that truly deserves to be liberated and heard far and wide, so please share this!
