Stevie Wonder: Hotter Than July

Phil Sutcliffe, Sounds, 1980

IF THIS ALBUM had been issued between Fulfillingness First Finale and Songs In The Key Of Life I think I'd still have given it four stars, but it would have seemed something of a potboiling time-marker. However, after The Secret Life Of Planets it's a blessed relief and warmly to be welcomed.
