Music aficionados will be engaged by the 33 1/3 series, especially with this production. Allyson Johnson narrates in a steady voice, using inflection at key moments to emphasize their importance. In particular, Lundy provides insights into the history and significance of Wonder’s album SONGS IN THE KEY OF LIFE, discussing his frame of mind while creating it as well as the record company’s concern about the length of time he took on it and their anxiety over the audience’s potential response to it. However, for an audiobook about music, the lack of excerpts from Stevie Wonder’s music does the production a disservice. L.E. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
