Hotter Than July

R&P INTERNACIONAL

MUSIC
By the time Hotter Than July was released, in 1980, Stevie Wonders most fertile period was already over. The smash run that began 1972 Music of My Mind and Talking Book and ran through Innervisions 1973, Fulfullingness First Finale 1974 and 1976s Songs in the Key of Life was winding down. There was still enough magic left in Wonder for one last hurrah, however--and while July isnt its forerunners equal in the heights it scales or consistency, its still bears the marks of Wonders best work: theres the regretful I Aint Gonna Stand For It, the reggae-crossover Master Blaster Jammin, an oft-imitated classic see Elvis Costellos Watching the Detectives, for one; and the enormously successful paean to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Happy Birthday. --Randy Silver
