Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta – Syreeta Wright

Syreeta Wright Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta

Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta

(1974), 8.5/10
If their first collaboration was a pleasant diversion, Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta is a minor classic. The same team is in place, with Wonder producing and writing and Cecil and Margouleff engineering, but the material is stronger and the sound is tougher.

There’s infectious poppy material like ‘Your Kiss Is Sweet’ and Spinnin’ And Spinnin”. ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers’ is delicate, while ‘Universal Sound of the World’ sounds huge. ‘Just A Little Piece Of You’ is reminiscent of the subtle, hooky material on Wonder’s Fullfillingness’ Last Finale, while ‘I Wanna Be By Your Side’ is a beautiful duet between The Spinners’ G.C. Cameron and Syreeta.

If you’re a Stevie Wonder fan, Stevie Wonder presents Syreeta is essential listening.
