Stevie Wonder, Hotter Than July (1980) 

Label: Tamla

Asher: You should be allowed to keep your iPod on during takeoff on a flight if you're listening to Stevie Wonder's Hotter Than July. Come on, dog. That album is fucking incredible. What an amazing album cover too. That’s one of those classics. That imagery will stay with you forever. And what an amazing story. Finally one of those childhood starts that doesn’t lose it. It probably helps that he’s blind, but he just keeps it G, dude. He’s a sweetheart—great guy and amazingly talented. The drums! I want to sample Stevie Wonder’s drums like there’s no tomorrow. But there’s no point. You’ll never get them cleared.
