I've been on a 70's soul and funk kick lately, and was looking for insight on artist or songs I should check out. Even newer stuff with that sound would work.
Thanks

From when Stevie Wonder was relevant.

24 year-old Stevie in Germany, on Musikladen:

Pusher man
Skin Tight
Smiling faces
The world is a ghetto
People make the world go round
Higher ground
Ball of confusion
Papa was a rolling stone
For the love of money.


I'm not as white as I look.
Sincerely, OTTO.
