Little Stevie Wonder: At 12 there was already something special about him....

Wrote Flautist:

Here's [a] 12-year-old, high-voiced but already singing with distinctive phrasing (I love how at 0:56 he strings out "strange tooooo you"), enormous range, and an absolute mastery of time.

The Hammond organ really juices it up, too, but the wonderful bonus is the Temptations singing doo-wop background.

"Contract on Love" — wonderful, bouncy little tune.

Love is the only thing you get more of by giving it away

Love copy

Above, a postcard I received in early February 1998 from Burdick Chocolates, announcing that year's St. Valentine's Day specials.

It's been on my refrigerator ever since, which explains why it's not as pristine as it was the day it went into the mailbox.

Some years ago I called the company and told them how much I liked the card and asked if there were any left or if they planned to reissue it.

"No" and "no."

So you'll just have to print out your own from what's up top.

At least it's free, the way we like it.
