A MOTOWN SNAPSHOT MEMORY: STEVIE WONDER, ’68

October 16th, 2017

FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE‘ is the ninth (tenth overall) studio album by American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder on Motown Records, released in November 1968. Then eighteen years old, Wonder had established himself as one of Motown’s consistent hit-makers. This album continued Wonder’s growth as a vocalist, songwriter and producer. It featured songs like the title track, Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day and the modest hits “I Don’t Know Why” and “You Met Your Match.” While “I Don’t Know Why” was not released outright a single, the titled song found it’s way instead on the B-side of Stevie Wonder’s 1969 million-seller, “My Cherie Amour.” It also marked the debut of the Hohner Clavinet (keyboard) on a Stevie Wonder album, which would become a mainstay on albums to come.
