stevie wonder - live at the rainbow, 1974

apparently stevie wonder is heading back to town this summer to play a free show at the taste of chicago on saturday, june 28th...what a clusterfuck that'll be...it might still be worth it to check him out though, or to even make the trip up to milwaukee a couple nights earlier & pay for a seat when he plays summerfest, cause even though he doesn't open up with 20 minute funk jams anymore, he still puts on a pretty amazing show...this one was recorded almost 35 years ago at the rainbow theatre in london for a live album that was ultimately scratched...the tags say 02/24/74, but according to NME it was actually recorded in january...whatever, it's fantastic.

05. signed, sealed, delivered
06. visions
07. don't you worry 'bout a thing
08. living for the city
09. you are the sunshine of my life
10. superstition
11. lot of my dreams
