Stevie Wonder – Eivets Rednow (1968)

March 15, 2009

Eivets Rednow

“Alfie” (Burt Bacharach, Hal David)
“More than a Dream”

“How Can You Believe”
Medley: “Never My Love”/”Ask the Lonely”
“Which Way the Wind”
“Bye Bye World” (Wonder)
“Grazin’ in the Grass” (Harry Elston, Philemon Hou)

The album was released almost in secret. Because of Motown establishing Wonder as a soul-pop shouter, the label agreed to release the album with Wonder’s name backwards. This would be copied by other musicians over the years. Wonder only plays harmonica, drums, and clavinet on this album and doesn’t sing on any of the tracks. “How do you spell Stevie Wonder backwards” is printed on the top corner of the album sleeve in small print, serving as a hint to the record buyer.
