Stevie's my fave artist and it's got to be: "AS"

(Closely followed by Another star, Knocks me off my feet, All in love is fair, Creepin', Too shy to say, Superstition, and so many more...)

Hi Darren, I'm originally from North London, but now living in good old Essex. I'll always be a London guy, though, never an Essex boy, lol! :wink:

If I am only allowed one, it would have to be "DO I DO". Absolute best he ever made for the floor. After that would be "Another Star".

In terms of Stevie songs - favourite has to be Sir Duke although I love I Never Dreamed You'd leave in Summer!

When I was a kid and discovered that LONGER versions were on the LP,
I wondered how & why they cut the songs for the 45.

Motown was famous for cutting all the long Eddie Kendricks & Temptations' jams for the 45 release. It was standard knowledge in the '60s & '70s that the US Radio stations would not play a song (especially by an unknown artist) if it was over 3:30 minutes long.
Examples were among others: Eddie Kendricks' "Boogie Down", "Girl You Need A Change Of Mind", "Keep On Truckin", Rare Earth's "Get Ready" and "I Know I'm Losing You", Temptations' "Masterpiece" and "Runaway Child Running Wild", Chicago's "I'm A Man" and "Beginnings" and an awful 2 minute 30 second version of Santana's "Black Magic Woman".

When the 45 version of Stevie Wonder's "Living For The City" was released in 1973, Motown didn't edit it--they just faded it out after 3 minutes.
On the NYC Radio Station WRKS or '99X' like they used to call themselves they used to play an edit that put both parts of the song together, bypassing the 'city interlude' in the middle.
It sort of kept the 'groove' going and did not destroy the song!!!
I've looked long & hard for that version until I found out a year later that the radio station did it themselves!!

Here is how it sounded:

STEVIE WONDER: "LIVING FOR THE CITY" (99X Edit) 1973
