Background: Released in 1971, Where I’m Coming From was the fifteenth album by Stevie Wonder. The album reached #62 on the U.S. charts, helped by the #8 single, “If You Really Love Me.”
One month before he turned 21, Stevie Wonder released Where I’m Coming From, the most distinctive record of his young career, and one that looked forward — in its breadth of material as well as its futuristic production aesthetic — to his many successes later in the ’70s. There’s a fabulous song here for nearly every type of fan; … Stevie summoning his purest register to convey heartbreak and hopefulness, respectively, in equal measure. For all the great material included, there was little chance of these songs hanging together as a proper album, and Berry Gordy’s misgivings about releasing a record like this on a Motown label were, temporarily, well-placed. Still, Where I’m Coming From was a frequently astonishing album from Motown’s new genius of the recording studio.
