Currently listening to this. Not a big Stevie Wonder fan but there are some terrific tracks. Bought it, as a limited edition, back in about 1978, so some tracks have seen better days.

Today has been a bit of a vinyl marathon.
All The Doors studio albums, the recent reissues, and then for some light relief "Frampton Comes Alive", and at the moment "Venus and Mars" by Wings ("The band The Beatles could have been" Alan Partridge).
Had a CD break in the middle of that lot, and listened to the new Mostly Autumn album "Go Well Diamond Heart". Highly recommended, if you like that prog-ish, classic rock kind of thing.
Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - I See A Darkness
This sounds great. Different to the CD. There's greater seperation present here. For example. there's more distinction between the voices on the dual-tracked vocal in the chorus of 'A Minor Place'.
Also, although it isn't advertised as such, it's a heavyweight pressing. It feels like a 200g, to me. Rare for a modern pressing, especially at the price (£12.99 from Amazon)
Fleetwood Mac - Greatest Hits.
Sounds so good, it's giving me chills!
Pink Floyd - Delicate Sound Of Thunder.

Ike and Tina Turner - Golden Empire (Greatest Hits)
Another fabulous sounding early 70s album. The only Nazareth album I have.
I sold my soul to the devil.
Anyone know the book they got the name Steely Dan from.
I heard, back then, that a Steely Dan was a Street term for a ladies toy. Prolly a load of tosh, but you never know.
Nearly right. Edgar Burroughs. ' Naked Lunch'. Reference to a steam powered adult toy. I claim my 3p not offered prize.
I read it in a Rebus book on holiday. If I ever get to Iceland I'll give you your 3p prize money.The thing is I only ever go south.3p you would be quite rich in Iceland these days, their economy is about the same as Ireland's, Kaput.
