1972's 'Music of My Mind' marks Stevie Wonder's first attempt at making his own album without the boundaries and constraints of Berry Gordy's assembly line formula that I (like others) tend to refer to as "The Motown Hit Factory". Now possessing full artistic control of every aspect of his work, "Love Having You Around" is a full blown sanctified, funkdafied and boogielicious guided tour of Stevie's flowering genius! This very ambitious love jam, powered by the moog synth and cutting edge vocoder/talkbox sound effect generously sprinkled throughout, (an effect which other artists like Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh, Roger Troutman, and Richie Sambora would later emulate in some of their own music) immerses the listener in an atmosphere of engrossing and innovative synthesized textures of sound. Paired with Stevie's charismatic vocals and infectious groove, this cut can (and will) funk you up when you least expect it! Trust me, Stevie knows funky... like, what other cat could profess "Everyday I wanna get on my camel and ride" and get you to grin and relate? I mean, for real,.. how funky is that?!..
Go with the ride, man! With Stevie Wonder at the helm, you won't be sorry!

As always my pleasure.

Oh wow. I used to play a house tune years ago that sampled this. Had no idea this was the source. Thank you as always.
