Video: Stevie Wonder

Wow! Check out this Stevie Wonder set from a German TV show back in 1974. Interesting things about this video recording: Stevie plays all of these tunes in almost a suite-like fashion (maybe due to the time constraints of the show?); this performance was taped not long after Stevie had been in a bad car accident (no, he wasn't driving!!) and had been left in a coma for four days; check out this crazy version of "Contusion" - recorded a year and a half before the release of "Songs in the Key of Life." All in all, this set is kinda rough around the edges. But this rawness makes it so, so real and alive. And the band is sick!

Stevie Wonder = Force of Nature
