Syreeta-Syreeta/Stevie Wonder Presents Syreeta (limited numbered edition)


The first 2 Motown albums by the Late Syreeta -- both of them recorded under the supervision of her partner Stevie Wonder! The genius of these records is hard to describe accurately -- a sort of spacey soul approach that builds on the work of Stevie at the time, but which also has traces of Minnie Riperton -- and it's own sort of fragile, gentle, groove. The Syreeta album is very spare -- often just featuring bits of electronics and percussion next to Syreeta's pure and honest vocals -- and while the Stevie Wonder Presents album works in slightly fuller arrangements, the sound is still nicely stripped-down overall -- very unique for the time, not only for Motown, but for all of mainstream soul as well! Cosmic righteousness abounds, and the 20 track CD is a delight throughout! Titles include "I Love Every Little Thing About You", "Black Maybe", "Keep Him Like He Is", "What Love Has Joined Together", "She's Leaving Home", "I'm Goin Left", "Waitin For The Postman", "Cause We've Ended As Lovers", and "Come & Get This Stuff". (Limited edition of 5000 copies) -- my copy is numbered 4768 of 5000

Thx Psychotic. I never gave enough attention to Syreeta before. Quite delicious, clearly in the Stevie realm but quieter & spacier. I'm gonna explore your blog. Downloaded Gil Scott too, shining stuff! Many thx.

Same here! I've only heard the Beatles song and Jeff Beck's instrumental version of hooch here's favorite, but the ingredient list is enough for me. On to the next gem in this blog. Thanks,

This LP is Stevie Wonder so in love with Syreeta it's sickening. The classic cuts on this gem is heart wrenching for me because in 1974 I was 12 years old and my late sister played this album to death.
