Stevie Wonder: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Danny Holloway, New Musical Express, 22 January 1972

STEVIE WONDER is the first artist to make Motown work for him rather than vice-versa. He has full control over his music and has acquired his own eight-piece band, Wonder-love. He also has four backup vocalists (three females and one male). He's been changing a lot recently and is a bit frightened of being type-cast as a soul artist.
