Gotta get more women and minorities on, but I tossed that Swamp Dogg and Marvin Gaye on there, as well as a nice Gillian Welch song and a Tracy Chapman number. Been fun and something different at least, to look into this.

    But if anything more comes to mind, post it! We are all about the collaboration, the true Folklife spirit of sharing and passing down, and fighting the man through song and words.

    I think it can be argued that there has never been a run of consecutive albums that equaled Stevie's Fab Four:

    Talking Book
    Innervisions
    Fulfillingness' First Finale
    Songs in the Key of Life

    Music of My Mind also in that, imo. I think Secret Life of Plants is brilliant and crazy, but even if you want to toss that out as a curio, Hotter Than July continues that run. It was a hell of a decade for liberated Stevie.

    I think Music of My Mind was directly before Talking Book.

    He basically had Music of My Mind through Fulfillingness' already down, Motown just wouldn't let him do his thing. He hooked up with the TONTO guys and all that shit came blasting forth. What an output. Nothing else like it in the universe.

    Yes, it was. I think it deserves to be included in that run because it was the first one of Stevie with freedom.

    People were freaking out about how long Stevie was taking to finish Songs in the Key of Life. I think it came out the year after Born to Run. People in the industry were apoplectic that many albums would be taking that long to finish.

    Bad car accident slowed it down. (he was not driving).

    Or maybe that happened earlier. I dunno.

    But yeah, he actually had to write new songs instead of what had been percolating in his head while Motown had him in CHAINS. But we are all better off for what came when it finally came. I like the story of Paul Simon accepting the award for Best Album of the Year and thanking Stevie because it was the first year in a few he hadn't released one (and won).

    wasn't he sent to Baptist Hospital in Winston?

    Shit, yeah. I had forgotten that. Pretty crazy little thing there. Good pull.

    I think Stevie's tour promoting Music of My Mind was the one he opened for the Stones. Not a bad show.
