Stevie Wonder’s “Original Musiquarium I” Gets A Vinyl Release

sw

As sales in vinyl records continue to improve, record companies are delving the vaults for quality re-releases. Stevie Wonder’s compilation double album from 1982 (“Original Musiquarium I”) was released on August 25th.

It contains all the hits, along with four previously un-released tracks tagged to the end of each side. For anyone looking for an introduction to Stevie’s 70s music, it’s a great starting point. Although I’m a huge Stevie Wonder fan, I rarely bought compilation records unless there’s something that distinctly strikes my attention.

This one is definitely worth the investment! The epic 10:28 closer “Do I Do” featuring legendary jazz musician Dizzy Gillespie, is a joy, as he and Stevie trade off  trumpet and harmonica solo’s like they’ve been working together forever. Inspired stuff!
