Superstar talent at 12 years old pays Ray Charles tribute

Wonder's second LP, recorded and released when he was only 12 years old, is a tribute to Ray Charles. As the original liner notes state, "Little Stevie Wonder, Tamla's 11-year-old musical genius, is blind, a similarity he shares with a famed musician and vocalist of today."

Though this is perhaps not the most subtle of tribute albums and a clear cash-in attempt from Motown, who were still looking for a way to market their new-found talent, the results are still fantastic. Little Stevie powers his way through a grip of Charles' classics as well as some original songs done in the "Charles style" and although the LP failed to score a hit, it's an enjoyable listen that shows a glimpse of the superstar talent that was soon to emerge.
