Pure Audio Blu-ray Edition

24bit/96 khz High Fidelity Audiophile Sound

Talking Book, a renowned classic album from the one and only Stevie Wonder, is now available in 96kHz/24-bit Hi-Res audio, mastered directly from the original tapes. The album's rich sonic palette, the work of Wonder with his coproducers Robert Margouleff and Malcolm Cecil, has never been so alive in this Blu-ray audio edition. Featuring the No. 1 hits "Superstition" and "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life."

Talking Book is the 15th album by Stevie Wonder, released on October 28, 1972. A signal recording of his classic period, in this one he hit his stride. The album's first track, "You Are the Sunshine of My Life," hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and Easy Listening charts, then earned Wonder his first Grammy Award, for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. The album's first single, "Superstition," also hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot Soul Singles charts.

"What had been hinted at on the intriguing project Music of My Mind was here focused into a laser beam of tight songwriting, warm electronic arrangements, and ebullient performances — altogether the most realistic vision of musical personality ever put to wax...Like no other Stevie Wonder LP before it, Talking Book is all of a piece, the first unified statement of his career...imitating life, it veers breathtakingly from love to heartbreak and back with barely a pause." — AllMusic

A very good Blu Ray Audio release

5 Stars
This album contains some of the great Stevie Wonder classics, so the music itself is worth the purchase if you don't already own this in one or more releases.

This particular Blu Ray release (which is in stereo - not multi-channel), sounds great. If there were half star ratings, I'd probably rate this 4.5. It is better than 4 star, but it also isn't a 5 star reference recording. Some of this may be inherent in the engineering process where to keep sounds like the high end of the drums on "Superstition" pulled back so that it doesn't compete with the keyboards and guitar, ends up leaving the drums sounding pretty flat. This is more a criticism of the original mix than this version - it only becomes more noticeable because this release is clear enough to notice some of the shortcomings inherent to the mix.Overall it sounds great- really good instrument and vocal separation and depth. The high end reveals all the detail without being brittle. You can't go wrong on this one.
