Label: Tamla

Release date:


By the time Hotter Than July was released, in 1980, Stevie Wonder's most fertile period was already over. Hotter than July bears the marks of Wonder's best work: there's the regretful I Ain't Gonna Stand For It, the reggae-crossover Master Blaster (Jammin'), an oft-imitated classic (see Elvis Costello's Watching the Detectives, for one); and the enormously successful paean to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Happy Birthday
