Description


Description

Soon to be added to Stevie's powerhouse album "Uptight", this is his best-loved British Northern Soul dance 45, presented here as the beyond desirable April 1966 Red and White DEMO!

In utterly immaculate Mint minus dream-condition.

"Nothing's Too Good For My Baby" gives up Stevie Wonder at his most urgent, his most energetic with this dancefloor classic, that has pleasured the Northern Soul scene since its debut at the Twisted Wheel and every other Soul/MOD club in the UK in the spring of 1966 right up to present day it is still igniting the dancefloors..

The frantic intro still springs you to your feet, pummeling percussion, blasting brass, all constructed to drive to drive the session to the outer-limits of studio power, with Stevie, an artist so comfortable with "pacey" Motown; his panting urgency never out-of-step. His ever reaching reaching vocal, grasping at every word, accentuating the message "Nothing's Too Good For My Baby" with "The Originals" along with "The Andantes and Pat Lewis" providing all the background voices during this the very "richest" of Motown productions. A collaboration between William "Mickey" Stevenson & Henry Cosby, with Sylvia Moy adding the finer touches, enlisting all the right personnel to deliver Motown at its most explosive.

Stevie hitting home his fevered vocal, whilst riding riding a magnificent "Funk Brothers" backing track - has Motown dance music ever been more convincing than this?

The flipside over the decades has been elevated by dedicated fans to something of a "cult" recording; with William "Mickey" Stevenson & Henry Cosby changing direction, enlisting the supreme artistry of the "Detroit Symphony Orchestra " to cradle the beautifully poignant "With A Child's Heart " underlining Stevie's versatility, switching over to a Deep Soul ballad of infinite charm, as Stevie brilliantly portrays a heartrending narrative.

Breathtaking Motown in the finest possible, most likely never to be repeated condition.
