Stevie Wonder’s second album of 1972, “Talking Book” is an extension and refinement of of the work begun on “Music of My Mind” released a few months earlier. Having experimented with different production techniques and keyboard sounds with the previous LP, “Talking Book” is also less gimmicky and more focused, chock-a-block with wicked clavinet sounds, most apparent in the classic “Superstition”. As with “Music of My Mind”, and all his future releases, Wonder plays most of the instruments on the LP, joined by Malcolm Cecil and Robert Margouleff who mess with some room-sized Moog synthesisers with the funkiest of results.
