Stevie Wonder!

Dear Pete Lesser,

Thank you for imploring me (again) to purchase Songs in the Key of Life--a remarkable $8.99 at Amazon for DRM-free MP3s!

These songs transport be back to my childhood. Maybe they were there in ambient car radio noise--likely from other cars since my parents only listen(ed) to 1010 WINS--as we drove regularly to McDonald's in Flushing. A great soundtrack for remembering and looking forward.

The amazing positivity, the synthesis, the beat. How could I have lived without this in such a concentrated form for so long? I listen at least once a day, and I can't wait to see how the album ends up influencing my thought and music-playing processes.

Yours,
Rob

Thank you for finally getting on board, Rob.

My favorite part of the album: the way that "If It's Magic" beautifully and seamlessly becomes "As."

There are few better transitions anywhere in art.

If you didn't follow up with Innervisions and Talking Book (and arguably Music of My Mind and Fulfillingness' First Finale as well), you're doing yourself a huge disservice.
