Gary Byrd and the GB Experience - "The Crown" (Produced by Stevie Wonder)

I've always though that the overtly Stevie parts of this (roughly 4:22-6:40) belong in his canon.

But, the Gary Byrd "raps" are pretty awful.

WTF I was the only voter for "You Met Your Match." Happy to see 2 other people voted for "All Day Sucker."

xp Aw, Gary Byrd's Are You Ready for Black Power? is great.

I thought Fingertips would be Top 10, easy. So much joy in that record.

I'd vote "Heaven is 10 Zillion Light Years Away" #1 if we redid this. really I'd vote Stevie's drum playing #1, so into that today. do we have a thread just for Wonder as a drummer?

Slate's Wonder Week, "telling our greatest living musician how much we care."

No arguments here.
