Talking Book is the fifteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter and musician Stevie Wonder, originally released in October 1972 via Tamla Records.

As the second of five consecutive albums which made up Stevie’s classic period, Talking Book found Wonder at the top of his game, combining tight song writing with warm electronic arrangements and effervescent vocal performances.

Sandwiched between the release of Music Of My Mind and Innervisions, Talking Book saw Wonder enjoying more artistic freedom from Motown, taking over the production reins and playing most of the instruments himself.

As a result, the sound of the album is sharply defined by Wonder's exquisite keyboard work, and his use of the Hohner clavinet model C on “Superstition” became widely regarded as one of the definitive tracks featuring the instrument.

Despite making the majority of Talking Book himself, the album also benefits from the talents of guest guitarists Jeff Beck, Buzzy Feton and Ray Parker, Jr who featured on “Maybe Your Baby” and “Lookin' For Another Pure Love”.

Wonder won three awards for Talking Book at the 1974 Grammys with “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life” winning Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and Superstition picking up both Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.

Check out the tracks: “Superstition” and “You Are The Sunshine Of My Life”.

This LP record is a "Back to Black" series reissue (January 2017) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with braille embossing and digital download code, pressed in Europe.
