I've recently started a mission to collect as much classic albums by the genius Stevie Wonder-childhood & adult albums-as I can possibly obtain. So far, I have gotten most of the albums many have considered Mr. Wonder made at his artistic zenith. Of his childhood albums, so far, I've gotten "For Once In My Life" (1968) and "My Cherie Amour" (1969). Between the two, I anticipated the latter to be my most consistent favorite. I was right. When I first heard samples from "My Cherie Amour" on Amazon.com, I was enthralled by each one, despite the thirty seconds. I became determined to get the album. Now that I have it, I listen to it, enjoying every minute of it. The title track is a phenomenal ballad, "Hello Young Lovers" is a great follow-up, and "At Last" is very nice. It makes me wonder though, is the "At Last" Stevie made the same one that Etta James made? I guess I'll find out eventually. "Light My Fire" is one of the samples which first got me hyped to get the abum. Stevie makes this cover sound so good, and his harmonica playing on it keeps the head rocking. The classic standard "The Shadow Of Your Smile" has those simple lyrics I've always wanted to sing myself. Stevie dosen't sound half bad on that one. The ones that follow are modest, but Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday, Angie Girl, and I've Got You are among my vast favorites on this young Wonder-ful album.

The title track to "My Cherie Amour" is one of Motown's best from the 1960's. This album is a peculiar mix of songs, some of which had been recorded as early as 1966 but held from release until this album in 1969. Following the title track is a cover of Rogers and Hammerstein's "Hello Young Lovers." It's a spritely, happy song that fits well the third song, a cover of the standard "At Last." This is done surprisingly upbeat, and is more befitting of the lyrics. I love it! This cover-crazy album features even more remakes: "Light my Fire" is set at a relaxed mid-tempo, bolstered by harmonica and occasional orchestration, and nothing exceptional (or bad) is done with the standard "The Shadow of Your Smile." The middle of the album drags a bit with a few filler songs, but picks up a bit with the hit "Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday" and the soft, charming "Angie Girl." Though the album isn't exactly cohesive, there are a few delightful songs you won't find elsewhere.

My Cherie Amour is another solid late 60's album from Stevie Wonder. The title cut is one of the best ballads he's ever done. It has lush orchestration and a supple vocal. Many of the other songs are in this vein including "Hello Young Lovers", "You & Me", "Somebody Knows, Somebody Cares" and "At Last". "Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday" has a great vocal and "Light My Fire" is based on the Jose Feliciano version not The Doors'.

The title track not withstanding this album seems thrown

together in comparasin to what came before.Once again Stevie

reinvents "Hello Young Lovers","At Last" and even "Light My

Fire" in his own charming way but the arrangements are downright

bizzare and make little sence even by Motown standards.They

even tacked on "Yester Me,Yester You",a fairly old single on

whitch Stevie's voice is still cracking a bit on the high notes.

An okay album with great songs like "You And Me" but there is

definately some filler here.

What a joy to hear Stevie's early music tied to his Motown era. Thia album contains some of his best if not some of the all time greatest Motown joints ever in "My Cherie Amor" and "Yester-Me, Yester-You, Yesterday." The clarity of Stevie's voice underscores the simple but effective writing on lesser known gems like "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and "Hello Young Lovers." And I must be totally honest and admit I bought the album largely because of "Angie Girl" maybe my favorite pre Tamla Wonder song. Although a little long in the tooth with some fluff (he could have kept the hideous cover of The Doors "Light My Fire) this is an enjoyable selection from the formative years of Stevie's stellar resume.

stevie wonder's last and final album for the decade of the 1960s 1969's"my cherie amour"would also be officially his last studio album that contains cover versions of other artist's songs and a mixture of his own originals. and 2 my amazement, mr. wonder pulls at all stops 2 give his unique versions of these songs the "wonder way"...and in his classic vocal stylings and musicianship.the album opens with a beautiful wonder original,the classic 'my cherie amour'which was co-written with the beautiful sylvia moy and henry cosby.the song has one of the most beautiful lines and melody in the history of music:'my cherie amour,lovely as a summer day-my cherie amour,distant as the milky way'...this song is without question an unforgetable classic.side one of the original vinyl album opens with that wonder classic and from there wonder brings his musical harmonica uniqueness and vocals 2 the cover versions updated with the upbeat late 1960s style such as 'hello young lovers'/'at last'/and a splendid cover version of the doors 1967 classic 'light my fire'...

wonder's version of 'the shadow of your smile'is without a doubt a very relaxing calm groove that has similar shadings to 'my cherie amour'not by way of the lyrics but by it's musical presentation.(also around this period,wonder recorded a remake of leslie bricusse and syral ornadel's if i ruled the world'which was not included in this album but was included in wonder's three record anthology "looking back" which was originally released in 1977)'you and me'is sung with joyous sunshine from the heart and the musicbeat is moderately warm.side two of the original vinyl album opens with two funky jams:'pearl'as wonder sings with excitement in that he declares her as the sweetest girl in the world.
