    This was the first album to be made with a polyphonic synthesiser, the first song with a poly synth..."I Wish"

    Comes a time when a blind man takes your hand and says "Don't you see, you got to hold on to the dreams you still believe in"

    Early 1970's I'm in the Coast Guard and hear this for the first time. What a powerful song. The poor shmoe who goes to NYC, gets roped into taking the "package" across the street with the sirens in the background coming, then gets busted. My favorite line of his is "Skyscrapers and everythang". Downer story - but it made this young white boy from Arizona learn about Mr. Wonder's fine music...
