I read that it's been postponed indefinitely (again). He's reportedly back in the studio fixing some stuff. This is the second time it's been delayed; originally slated for release a year ago.

Argh! I was supposed to review this a year ago, and was told then that it was delayed because he wanted to add a special track after Ray Charles's death.

This excessive fiddling can only mean one thing -- it isn't any good.

The single's out, so I need to just track that down to satisfy my Stevie craving.

The single's pretty good...it's got a classic Stevie groove. I think you can hear it at his website or Motown's website. Not as good as his '70s stuff, but it gives me hope for the album.

His '70s output is some of my favorite music ever, so I'll always hold out hope for his new releases. (But you're right, the delays aren't a promising sign.)

I didn't know I'd relieved you of your reviewing responsibilty, Justin, but I'll do you proud.

No, Alf -- I was relieved at PM in the year-long disc shuffle. I'm looking forward to your review, though.

Full post on Blechdom this afternoon (for Ian)...
