"Between his free-floating melodicism and his rolling overdrive, his hope and his cynicism, he seems more and more like the best thing the '60s ever happened to. A- ..."
- Robert Christgau

"... the artist's blend of pop hooks and African chants, his synthesized expressions of pipe-and-drum tribal dreams and his powerful vocal mixture of baby talk, galloping gospel singing and flowery melismata all add up to a unique musical style that goes far beyond words in conjuring a natural world one step removed from paradise. Stevie Wonder remains our most gifted pop muralist."
- Rolling Stone

Hotter Than July is Stevie Wonder's follow-up to the soundtrack from the documentary The Secret Life Of Plants , which was a rather unusual, mostly-instrumental album. The more typical pop material on Hotter Than July including the reggae-tinged hit Master Blaster (Jammin') put Wonder back on the top of the charts and resulted in another million seller. Hotter Than July also includes the song Happy Birthday, which became the springboard that launched Wonder's campaign to have January 15, the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. declared a US national holiday. In 1984, his efforts paid off when US president Ronald Reagan announced that the third Monday of each January was to be officially known as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
