Little Stevie Wonder – Hallelujah (I Love Her So)
Wow. It has certainly been awhile, hasn't it? I've had a nice little 3 week vacation from Those Who Dig, and in the meantime I've moved to a little town (Kennebunk) in a big state (Maine). I've started at a new trade school, started biking everywhere, rehurt my shins running, ate a lot of tofu, and learned to make Old Fashioneds. It's been an eventful month. I have definitely missed the ol' Dig so hopefully this gets me back in the groove.
What do I have for you today, you ask? How about a little Stevie Wonder. Actually how about Little Stevie Wonder. I picked up 12 year old Stevie's Tribute To Uncle Ray at a record shop and hot damn it's a fun time. People get down on this record for the whole "making a blind, black kid cover a blind, black guy" schtick and because Stevie's voice wasn't yet what it would become, but come on dudes. Get that big pole out of your backside. Kid was picked up by Berry Gordy and sings his heart out to tunes written by (or inspired by) Ray Charles. Did I mention he was 12?
