This assortment of seasonal cheer features Stevie Wonder applying his inimitable vocal technique to familiar and unusual Yuletide songs, with predictably successful results. In “Someday at Christmas” he yearns for a Christmas when “Men won’t be boys/playing with bombs like kids play with toys”–this album was recorded during the Vietnam War–striking a plaintive tone not often found on Christmas albums. Other high points include his joyous reading of “Little Drummer Boy,” with its steadily building martial beat, and chestnuts like “Silver Bells” and “The Christmas Song,” which Wonder delivers with total assurance, as well as a palpable sense of fun. He even brings a measure of soul to more sentimental numbers like “One Little Christmas Tree” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Me,” while “What Christmas Means to Me” invokes the bubbling bass line of the Capitols’ “Cool Jerk,” and features a blissful harp solo.

Down to Earth is the sixth studio album by American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder, released on November 16, 1966 on the Tamla (Motown) label. The album was a departure from Wonder’s earlier, teen pop-driven albums, and, along with its predecessor, Up-Tight, it re-established the sixteen-year-old Wonder, whose voice had recently changed, as a Motown hitmaker. The LP features the hit single “A Place in the Sun”. Another single, “Hey Love”, became a hit for Detroit soul singer Betty Lavette the following year.

Stevie Wonder created the soundtrack for the documentary The Secret Life of Plants (directed by Walon Green) in 1979. The album was released by Motown as the sequel to Wonder’s 1976 Grammy Award-winning Songs in the Key of Life. Although The Secret Life of Plants was not as well-received as Songs in the Key of Life, some critics still found it compelling. Stephen Holden, in a review for the Village Voice wrote that the album has “the painful awkwardness of a barely literate sidewalk sermon”, though Wonder “manages to transform even the worst of this drivel into a spiritual jargon that’s virtually a different language; his very in-articulateness clears the way for us to tune in to the ineffable, nonrational flow that’s his obsession.”

On its release, the album peaked at #4 in the Rock and R&B Billboard charts in 1979, and the single “Send One Your Love” hit #4 as well.
