He was a powerful force on the Billboard charts for more than a quarter century. Over the years this dynamic artist would prove to be not only a spendid singer but a talented musician and gifted songwriter to boot. His records were a fixture on American radio through most of the 60's, 70's and 80's. Yes, Stevie Wonder truly was and remains an American original. Now our friends at Motown/Universal have seen to release a marvelous single disc collection of 20 of Stevie Wonder's fantastic #1 Hits. "#1's" brings back all of those sensational hit records you would remember growing up. And the truly remarkable thing is that no two of these songs sound alike!
Now during the 1960's Stevie Wonder made quite a few memorable records. The cream of the crop are included here. You might recall his first big hit "Fingertips - Pt 2" which went all the way to the top of the charts in 1963! "Little" Stevie Wonder was just 12 years old when this tune was recorded and it quickly became obvious to all that this young man was a star in the making. One of my favorite Stevie Wonder discs was the rollicking 1967 hit "I Was Made to Love Her" which is also included here.
For all of the success he enjoyed in the 1960's Stevie Wonder would go on to even bigger and better things during the 1970's. A whole host of Stevie's tunes would find their way to the top of the charts and all of them are included here. This list of hits covers the full gamut from his funky 1972 smash "Superstition" to the enduring love song "You Are The Sunshine of My Life". You will also find other great 70's hits like "Sir Duke", "I Wish" and a personal favorite "Boogie On Reggae Woman" included here as well.

You've probably heard a boatload of Stevie Wonder songs, growing up, in the mall when your shopping, at work, on the radio, etc.. The man, is walking testament to great songwriting and performing. Let's run down some of my favorite songs from this album shall we? "Signed, Sealed, Delivered(I'm Yours)" a classic love affirming soulful rendition, "Superstitious" with it's infectious, groovy bass line and ominous, yet catchy lyrics, "I Was Made to Love Her" a timeless classic beckoning affection, and thanksgiving of a man and woman in cahoots with each other, "You Are The Sunshine In My Life" Stevie's crooning and songwriting, once again positively solidifying a man's undying passion for his lifelong woman. "Higher Ground" a call to response in a world that has forgotten its place, a call to social responsibility, with hope for tomorrow "Teachers keep on teaching, preachers keep on preaching" You've heard the infamous lyrics with that keyboard arrangement. "Boogie On Reggae Woman", "Master Blaster (Jammin')" "I Just Called To Say I Love You" another classic song. The only drawback I have with this "best of" collection is that "Isn't She Lovely?" "You Will Know" and some of my other favorites weren't included. But, it's Stevie Wonder through and through, and it's great value for your hard earned money. Enjoy making new memories with these tracks.

I may not have been around when Stevie Wonder began...
But I was raised up listening to him & ALL OF his wonderful music!
I wish I could've found the one that has most of his #1's on it that
I saw mentioned in the reviews...like "As".

Yet this is still a jamming album! Oops! Did I just reveal my age?

Lol...it's all good! Proud to be able to say I made it to see 44 yrs!
And pray the LORD lets me be around for that & then sum more!
With the Master Blaster Stevie Wonder, going along with me!

I've been a big fan of Stevie's since the Talking Book album back in the early 70's. Many of his greatest recordings are here, including two of my personal all time favorites, Superstition & Overjoyed. Maybe some of you will remember Stevie doing Overjoyed on SNL back in the day. His vocal range was never on better display & it shows in this recording as well. The quality of the MP3 is first rate. My wife loved hearing these songs & when I told her the great price she decided to look for more great Amazon MP3 deals ! I'd only recently become a regular purchaser of music through Amazon using the Cloud Player. I love it & will be back for more !!

As a person who felt like expanding their music library while developing an appreciation for music before my generation of artists, I figured start with someone who has likely influenced many of today's pop, rock, soul, and R&B artists. (like Maroon 5).

I had heard Stevie Wonder songs in movies and TV shows and always seemed to enjoy them, and the Motown genre. I finally decided that I had to just purchase some form of his music.

As a number 1's album, you can expect each song to be good. I am very glad to have these gems on my playlists to jam out to.
My favorite songs have been "Superstition", "Higher Ground", "Living for the City", "You Haven't Done Nothin'", "I Wish", "Sir Duke", and "Master Blaster (Jammin')",

I'm not African American, (I'm hispanic), but I think it's great that his music had a message to challenge the country to uphold equality and civil rights. (since that was an issue during his time).

Overall, these songs are great, have that 'feel-good' sound that can get you moving. The synth and bass licks personally my favorite things about his songs.

If you're bored with today's music, rewind, and try Mr. Stevie Wonder's music. :)
