I prefer the single version of "Living for the City". The album version is a mess.

to me it's one of the two weakest tracks on the album (along with "He's Misstra Know It All)... but we're talking about the most consistent and song-for-song best pop album ever made (imo, of course), so it's still one of the better songs anybody's ever done... (-:

How is the album version a mess? I don't know if I've ever heard the single version though....I happen to like that spoken part. :parrot:

Honestly, Stevie is somewhat of an acquired taste. He has a REEEALLY unique voice that's all his own. But there's just nothing that really jumps at me as anything special. His runs are kind of polarizing too.

Just for the hell of it, here are some other soul vocalists I prefer over Stevie:
Wilson, Cooke, Charles, Brown, Gaye, Pickett, Mayfield, Williams, Stubbs, Ruffin....just to name a few.

I do love Stevie, but more for his music than his singing.

Fave ? I was wondering if you also didnt like Music of My Mind like a lot of other people....

Also, in case you havent listened to it, you should listen to Signed Sealed and delivered and Hotter than July, both very good albums in their own right

Innervisions is definitely my fav. I like Music of my Mind but I see it as the weakest.

The unfortunately titled Looking Back has almost everything you'd want. Including the wonderful previously unreleased original version of "Until You Come Back To Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)".
