Classic Album Sundays presents Stevie Wonder ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’

To mark the 40th anniversary of Stevie Wonder’s iconic eighteenth album ‘Songs In The Key Of Life’ we will host album listening sessions around the world.

Recorded over two years the album is arguably Stevie’s finest hour and is also one of the greatest albums of all time as it contains hit after hit. “Sir Duke”, “I Wish”, “Pastime Paradise”, “Isn’t She Lovely”, “As” and “Another Star” are all included making this truly a masterpiece. To make an album that doesn’t contain an average song is hard enough, let alone doing it on a double album as Stevie has done here. Read more about the album here.

Get your tickets early for this one as this one is certain to be popular!
