The Wonder Of Stevie

This post is really more of an odd aside--all because I'm currently finishing a book called "This Is Your Brain On Music"--a book interestingly enough analyses the mind's many known facets with regard to music. Written by a neuroscientist/rock musician, his little asides about the composite makeup of popular songs didn't surprise me--until I learned that Stevie Wonder played the drums on his own mega hit, Superstition.

Makes his circa "long time ago" takeover of Sesame Street even sweeter. I was stunned when I saw this as a kid, and now, to see it again with a VERY young Ray Parker Jr. on the hollow body makes it even cooler. How in the world did they get a mix like that?
