So my wife, for a preemptive and utterly awesome Father's Day gift, suggests tickets, in June, to one of the High Council Groovemasters of the Known World, playing at Starlight Theatre. I've since been checking out a bit more of his albums, and from Talking Book, I've had this in my head walking home from work:

Stevie Wonder - Tuesday Heartbreak

I am fully prepared, mind you, to see a huge banner of our sitting President unfurled to the strains of "Isn't He Lovely". One is generally prepared to accommodate such ridiculosity for the sake of such funkilious groovicitude.

Nic, awesome opportunity. He is such a brilliant artist. Talking Book, Innvervisions & Hotter Than July all great albums. I hope he plays that stuff. I really like the early 60's soul/gospel stuff too but he almost certainly won't go back that far.

One of the last Soul Legends who avoided being shot or dying of preventable forms of diabetes.

Make sure you blog about how it goes.

just close your eyes during that part to get the real feel of it.

It'll be good regardless of any barry-butt-kissing... it was actually pretty funny at the Esperanza Spalding concert: She mentioned offhand that she played for the President but her only comment was that she was mad they didn't let her play the song she wanted to play. I mean she actually was acting like she was irritated by it. I was gratified to see NO barry-butt-kissing going on.
