Other than a couple of lesser tunes, both sides!

Bit o' trivia: Cherokee, side two, with Booker T on organ, in 7/4 time, later made famous by a Pink Floyd tune called "Money".

You can't find that kind of trivia just anywhere!

While I can't say this is the "best LP side" ever, Asleep At The Wheel's "10" is darn good. It's like going to a roadhouse and fun.

Right now I'm listening to Stevie Wonder's 1973
Innervisions album. Great album--both sides! Side A/1 especially.

I remember Paul Simon's acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards some time later for "Album of the Year"--for Still Crazy After All These Years. He thanked Stevie for not releasing an album that year! Stevie was creating so much great music at that time--winning many Grammys and other awards and selling tons of records, especially after he had just turned 21-years-old a bit earlier and started to dictate what sounds he wanted to release on his future records.

Takes me back to my college days some 40 years ago when I played this LP--and all the many records I mentioned in my posts above--all alone in my dorm room--especially during times when others weren't around to get annoyed when I cranked the volume.

I'm now playing this great recording on somewhat the same stereo I had in college, but now with that new very warm & beefy subwoofer I just purchased--as I mentioned in another ER thread here.

Sounds so good!

Wow, thanks for posting. I don't own the album so wasn't familiar with just what songs were on it. I was surprised to find I knew (and love) every single one. Not a single one is less than fantastic. What an album! Very nice to listen all the way through in one sitting.

I could write a short paragraph on each song (but I won't). But I've always especially liked the contrast in how the intro to "Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing" goes from those sharp jabbing piano chords and rhythm and vocal interjections to that really smooth 'Everybody's got a thing...'. Just very cool, IMO.

Mr. Wonder is a monster talent!

I was lucky enough to see Mr. Wonder twice in Chicago. The opening act for one was Rufus, who had a terrible sound mix (too loud, we were close to the stage and one side of my face felt paralyzed).

But then they switched and he came on and opened with "Bird Of Beauty". He fixed everything!

Also love Side 1 (and 2) of the Taxi Driver soundtrack. After seeing that movie way back when I was a very young man, mesmerized by the music while watching this great film, I just had to get the soundtrack record.

I learned that the soundtrack was written by the great Bernard Herrman (this was his last film project before he died), whose best-known soundtrack is perhaps for Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. (I also later learned that a unique feature of his Psycho film soundtrack is that he used only strings, no other instruments.)



By the way, some years earlier, when I was about 14-years-old (today I'm almost 60), my mother brought home the Mantovani in Hollywood record and I immediately fell in love with its majestic sound. I can't find that entire record on YouTube, but here's just a taste (please go find the complete LP):
