Reissue producer: Harry Weinger.
Recorded at The Record Plant, Los Angeles, California and Media Sound, Inc., New York, New York. Originally released on Tamla (T326).
Digitally remastered by Kevin Reeves.
INNERVISIONS is Stevie Wonder squarely in the middle of his early-'70s peak. Continuing his ongoing proof that popular music can have a social conscience, INNERVISIONS features some of Wonder's finest pop singles while dealing rigorously with spiritual and sociological issues. "Living For The City" is a detailed ghetto anthem along the lines of his friend Marvin Gaye's "Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)," while the wildly funky "Higher Ground" looks to reincarnation and salvation. Both cracked the Top 10 in 1973.
The celestial thread continues through "Jesus Children Of America," which brings together Christianity and transcendental meditation, and "Visions," a delicate plea for peace and brotherhood that sounds like an homage to John Lennon's "Imagine" (released two years earlier). Successful in pretty much every way--it earned Wonder his first of two straight album-of-the-year Grammys--about the only question left by INNERVISIONS was, how to top it?
