Talking Book" established Stevie Wonder's albums during this period not as mere vehicles for new hit songs but as whole works of art that required the music loving public to pay attention. Superstition" and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" are the big hits from "Talking Book. But they aren't the only songs of note on the album. This album, more than even "Music Of My Mind", was a testament to that belief. Stevie himself stated that he felt this ablum had stronger overall songs than even the Masterpiece which was soon to follow, 1973's INNERVISIONS. With this album especially, Stevie would begin to change how songs were recorded and how technology, both new and old could be used to forward that change.

Talking Book è un album musicale di Stevie Wonder, pubblicato dalla Motown nel 1972. La prima traccia del disco, You Are the Sunshine of My Life, salì in vetta alla classifica statunitense Hot 100 di Billboard, facendo vincere a Wonder il suo primo Grammy Award, per la miglior performance vocale maschile in un brano pop. Il primo singolo estratto dall'album, Superstition, raggiunse anch'esso la prima posizione della Hot 100.

Stevie Wonder unveiled what many consider to be his first masterpiece, Talking Book, on 26 October 1972. 1972 was the year in which the creative surge of Stevie Wonder became truly unstoppable. He had been raising the bar of his artistic imagination for some time, with the albums Where I’m Coming From and Music Of My Mind, before he unveiled what many consider to be his first masterpiece, Talking Book, on 26 October. The album, which like Music Of My Mind was co-produced by Stevie with his redoubtable team of Bob Margouleff and Malcolm Cecil, appeared at the same time as its stunning first single ‘Superstition

Album · 1972 · 10 Songs. From the first, gliding notes of You Are the Sunshine of My Life, Talking Book pulls us into its current of creative momentum. Whether in the breezy rhythms of Lookin’ for Another Pure Love or the dirty, sticky stomp of Superstition, Stevie Wonder fully inhabits and magnifies every mood. Armed with an arsenal of newfangled keyboard tones, he duels Ray Parker, Jr. on Maybe Your Baby, a sublime fusion of hard rock and roiling funk. Wonder’s exuberant hunger to savor all styles only makes the plaintive tenderness of You and I more arresting. Talking Book Stevie Wonder.

After releasing two "head" records during 1970-71, Stevie Wonder expanded his compositional palette with 1972's Talking Book to include societal ills as well as tender love songs, and so recorded the first smash album of his career. What had been hinted at on the intriguing project Music of My Mind was here focused into a laser beam of tight songwriting, warm electronic arrangements, and ebullient performances - altogether the most realistic vision of musical personality ever put to wax, beginning with a disarmingly simple love song, "You Are the Sunshine of My Life".

Another great Stevie Wonder album. Talking book, is the second in that run of five, maybe six, glorious albums, and is another special record. Some great funky tracks in, superstition, maybe your baby, and, Tuesday heartbreak, as well as beautiful songs in, blame it on the sun, and, I believe. My only complaint though is the lightweight opening track, you are the sunshine of my life.
