Stevie Wonder: "Songs in the Key of Life"

I regret the damaged nature of the album cover in these pictures,
however, this blog is intended to be
pictures of albums in my actual LP collection.
Some of the covers sustained damage
for various reasons
over the years.
Stuff happens.

Released in 1976.
Widely considered to be one of the greatest albums of all time in general,
and Stevie Wonders' finest work specifically.
