Music for Monday: Stevie Wonder, ‘Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours’ (live, ’70)

"Here I am, baby!"

“Here I am, baby!”

Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” appeared on the Signed, Sealed & Delivered L.P. of August, 1970. The single, featuring Wonder’s first solo producing credit, hit #3 on the US Billboard “Hot 100″ and #11 in the UK.

Here’s a 20-year-old Wonder performing “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours” on the Dick Cavett Show on August 11th, 1970. To my mind, Stevie Wonder was the most consistently brilliant musician of the 1970s. There are many other artists I treasure from the decade but just about every song Wonder released between 1970-1979 makes me think “hot damn, that’s a fine tune.”
