Although he was recovering from an almost fatal car accident, Stevie Wonder proved with 'Fulfillingness' First Finale' that he still had as much inspiration as ever. The introspective nature of this album may have lead to it being wrongly overlooked when reviewing Stevie's 1970s output.

This album is licensed for download from Universal Music Group.

The two big singles on this album are 'Boogie on Reggae Woman' with a deep electronic groove balancing organic congas and gospel piano and 'You Haven't Done Nothin'' which is a commentary on the Watergate scandal. As before, 'Fulfillingness' First Finale' is mostly the work of a single man; Stevie invited over just a bare few musicians, and most of those were background vocalists (though of the finest caliber: Minnie Riperton, Paul Anka, Deniece Williams, and the Jackson 5). As in previous albums, the appearances are perfectly chosen; 'Too Shy to Say' can only benefit from the acoustic bass of Motown institution James Jamerson and the heavenly steel guitar of Sneaky Pete Kleinow, while the Jackson 5 provide some righteous amens to Stevie's preaching on 'You Haven't Done Nothin''.

The album is quite a personal one with several songs devoted to the many and varied stages of romance, among them 'It Ain't No Use', 'Too Shy to Say' and 'Please Don't Go'. The songs are also more understated than in previous albums which suits the intimacy of this important recording.
