Stevie Wonder – Talking Book

Stevie Wonder’s Talking Book is one of those records that I've been listening to since I was a little kid. That is just permanently ingrained in my brain from being a little child, hearing it all the time. I just feel like listening to it on headphones, it's so soothing. It sounds like Southern California, where I grew up. And the cover, he's kind of in the desert. It's a very sacred album in some way. Over time, I've grown to appreciate it even more. I've realised that it’s one of those records that will always be good. I thought it was really good as a kid and then rediscovering it as a as an adult and listening to it again, I was like, 'Oh, this will be good forever.'
