Vinyl LP pressing. Directly from Stevie Wonder’s string of classic albums, FFF, originally released in 1974, was the follow-up to Innvervisions. It was a #1 hit for several weeks, led by the #1 single ‘You Haven’t Done Nothin’ and ‘Boogie On Reggae Woman.’ This vinyl re-release features a reproduction of the original collage artwork depicting Stevie’s life on original gatefold cover, with full (and, in some cases, corrected) lyrics inside. Winner of three Grammy Awards including Album of the Year. FFF is Wonder’s nineteenth album overall, and seventeenth studio album. According to Billboard magazine, it was Wonder’s first studio album to top the Pop Albums chart where it remained for two weeks, while it was his third album to top the R&B/Black Albums chart where it spent nine non-consecutive weeks. Subsequent to the epic sweep and social consciousness of Innervisions, this set projected a reflective, decidedly somber tone.] The musical arrangements used in several songs while masterly could be considered sparse in comparison to others among his 1970s masterworks, evident especially in the bleak «They Won’t Go When I Go» and understated «Creepin'». While largely a stripped down, more personal sounding record, Wonder had not completely foregone social commentary on the world around him.
